RE: Nomenclature poll...
I've been giving more thought to this too. What I've come up with is the
* 10GBASE-VX - 850nm serial LAN (V for VSR)
* 10GBASE-MX - 1310nm serial LAN (M for Metro)
* 10GBASE-EX - 1550nm serial LAN
* 10GBASE-SX - 850nm WDM LAN
* 10GBASE-LX - 1310nm WDM LAN
The WAN implementations would substitute "W" for the "X".
If the number of PMDs should drop, we could realign the favorite suffixes

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
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.
