Re: [HSSG] Reach Objectives



I suggest dividing Metro into Metro Short Reach at 10 km (equivalent application to 10GBASE-LR) and Metro Intermediate Reach at 40 km (equivalent application to 10GBASE-ER).

Subject: [HSSG] Reach Objectives



We have had some conversation on the reflector regarding reach objectives.  Summarizing what has been discussed on the reflector I see the following –


Reach Objectives

Long-Haul   --> 100+ km

Metro       --> 10+ km

Data Center --> 50m & 300m


Data Center Reach Segregation



Horizontal runs

Vertical risers


Use this data to identify a single low-cost solution that would address a couple of the reach objectives


Other Areas

During the course of the CFI there were individuals who wanted Backplane Applications kept in for consideration, but I have not heard any further input in this area.  Are there still individuals who wish to propose Backplane as an objective?
