Re: [HSSG] Topics for Consideration
It sounds to me like the jump from 300m to 40 km might be too big. Is
there a need for 10km?

That's exactly what we're faced with at LBNL. Several of our
inter-building links fall in the <= 300m range, but many of them fall
into the 1-5 Km range. We've also investigated acquisition of dark
fiber to provision connections between Berkeley and Oakland (NERSC)
prior to ESnet's build-out of their MANs, which would have been near
10Km had we done it.
