Where would 40GE fit in 2010?
40GE would compete with 10GE and could increase sales of 100GE
40GE could give better value than 10GE with only 33% more BWLP but
4 times the bandwidth
• Majority of new backbone links would be over new fiber in the core of the network,
so PMDs for OM1 fiber (LRM like solutions) could be ignored.
