Re: [802.3BA] Discussion on 40G for => 10 km SMF


Personally, I am in favor of whatever can be brought to market within the time line of your project and has the lowest cost in the short term. The sooner the task force can decide this issue and get on to writing the standard, the better.

Dear Task Force Members,

Per Motion #9 from July, the editorial team is working on creating a “a draft based on adopted baseline proposals for circulation prior to the September 2008 interim meeting

.” Unfortunately, at the July meeting the Task Force did not reach consensus on a baseline proposal to satisfy the 40G over => 10km SMF objective. Therefore, in September we need to reach closure on this issue.

With that said, I would like to strongly recommend that the TF make use of the reflector to discuss the various issues of debate that have been going on, both during the meetings and during offline discussions.

Let’s use the next several weeks to have meaningful debate so we can reach consensus at the September meeting.
