RE: Equalization and benefits of Parallel Optics.


MT (or MT-RJ) has two fibers to align, and 4-parallel interconnect has eight
fibers to align.

Eight fibers vs. two fibers to align has huge difference is difficulty
factor.  They are not in the same level of comparison.  I hope some one has
come up with a solution to make it easier.

You certainly have stated some pitfall of the technology from the last 10
years.  The biggest reason for failure of these early program was ignoring
copper capability.  They were developing product more expensive and less
reliable than copper.  Many of the complexity which made these early program
fail also applies to any of the variant in consideration in the 802.3ae.
Cable termination is more difficult with MT or MT-RJ, how come MT RJ are
implemented in the LAN?
