RE: Straw poll


I consider myself in the LAN camp but I would love to take Ethernet into the WAN
in the years 2002 and 2003.

I think your proposal could mean you are voting no on both the motions in the
straw poll or abstaining but you should clarify your vote.

It is obvious by now that there are two camps in these speed discussion. One
camp consist of WAN background and other with LAN background. It seems like
WAN camp likes serial TDM at 9.58464Gbit interface, and LAN camp likes
10Gbit. I don't think LAN camp favors any particular PMD type but they are
leaning towards 4 channel WWDM type solutions.

With that, I propose that both solutions should be included in objective.
The long reach single mode interface should be at 9.58464Gbit and serial.
The short and intermediate reach multimode, single mode and copper interface
should support 10Gbit (12.5Gbit with 8B/10B) with 4 channels.
