RE: Equalization and benefits of Parallel Optics.

I have one question:

Which of our distance objectives is satisfied with parallel fiber and
parallel optics?

It has been my interpretation that when we talked about 100m of installed
base of MMF, that we were referring to the MMF fiber currently available for
use by 802.3z.  Parallel optics does not operate over this installed base.

Or am I missing the point here?

	I did not suggest to pull any new fiber.  Limit the shortwave
	including parallel optics to the data center with 100 m radius.
