Re: [HSSG] Backwards compatibility


I'm not sure exactly what you mean by backwards compatibility.

In the data center market and short haul metro, I would interpret it to mean common media specs. In the long haul market I would take it to mean compatibility with SDH optical specs and budgets and with optical repeaters.

What do you mean?

Excuse me for not knowing 1 & 10 Gig well enough, but is it reasonable to consider backwards compatibility with the corresponding implementations (i.e. short and long wavelength)?  Or is backwards compatibility a given?
