Re: Nomenclature poll...
I have been giving this much thought. I would like to come in with support of a modified version of your option #2. I would like
< wavelength >< # of wavelengths >< coding scheme >< # of conductors/fibers >.
This keeps the wavelength designators next to each other as stated by Paul Kolesar (6/1/00). Putting the number of conductors or
fibers at the very end is consistent with previous versions of 802.3 such as 100BaseT4.
