RE: PMD discussion

Ed and Jay:

In general it is true that with a given size of a pie, the more people share
the same pie, the smaller share  each one gets.

However, the 10 GbE PMDs are not in one same pie, in stead, it consists of a
few distinctly different pies.  For example, the pie of VSR below 100 meter
connections among equipment of a computer room is totally different from 40
km MAN pie.  They do not share pies at all.

Important thing we have to do is to provide enough PMD options for the
future market to grow.

Some PMD companies has all different PMD products to meet each different PMD
market needs.

Good point Jay. I am not in favor of splitting up the pie anymore than we
have to. And speaking from a PMD supplier perspective, the fewer projects we
need to fund and resource the better for time to market and time to cost.
