The reach objective of 40km also inherently included meeting the
5 criteria of the PAR, one of those criteria being Economic Feasibility.
Although there are 10G optics that can go 600+ km without electrical
regeneration, they are in a significantly higher cost category.
Note also that the standard in no way limits any offering of a PMD to
the reach objectives. Just like there are 1GE systems running a lot
further than 5 km.
There are only serial PMDs defined for the WAN PHY, 10GBase-LW and

Subject: [802.3ae] WAN distance
In WAN PHY , it states that the max distance is 40km.
But now the optical signal can be transmitted over
600km with O/E/O? why limit to 40km?
Is 10GBAse-LW4 still defined?
