Another change: We're removing the brief mention of the Ethernet Alliance, as they didn't want it to sound like they were controlling this whole effort.
Ok, now, *that's* just a typo. My math isn't that bad!
Are "they" looking for 100-Gig short-haul (e.g. 100 feet or less)? Long haul (100 miles or more)? Seems to me very different technical requirements could apply. Fiber only? Copper only?
So far, it sounds like some folks want a new line coding (and dedicated hardware development) for this "new" Ethernet, with a targetted deployment volume perhaps in the low hundreds over the next couple years, but expect the cost to be comparable to current systems which share hardware (and development costs) with thousands of other (e.g. SONET/SDH) devices.
Yeah, I'd expect the vendor community to jump right on that.
