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.
