re: Study HighLights Long-Haul Differences
With the "PX" going to the glue factory, how do they propse to do this?

re: Study HighLights Long-Haul Differences

Good point, edgecore. This "bogus RFI" is a little self-serving. In order to justify 40G line rates and OXCs, Stuart must have been projecting more data traffic than the entire continent currently gernerates. If this guy from Atlas were actually to build the network, he'd be lucky to run 5Gbps peak traffic in three years.

re: Study HighLights Long-Haul Differences
I agree Flanker,

Plus, when you plan an optical network, you usually talk a bit more about the services that will come into play, not a single mention of services...

What exactly is generating all this traffic? OC192 Leased Lines? 10G Catalyst 6500 Ethernet switches in every large enterprise...Storage over IP San for everyone...details please!

re: Study HighLights Long-Haul Differences

Ok, so I read the report. Fine, it's an *academic* exercise. so why not do a metro comparison where, as edgecore mentioned, you can get into messy service delivery issues?

Now there's a food fight.

I think the biggest thing left unmentioned in the full report (which is pretty good considering it's free to us), is cost.

re: Study HighLights Long-Haul Differences
flanker, I agree with you. Without any costs, the comparison is totally useless just like most of Light Reading. only comparing technology without costs is what got this industry into the tank in the first place.

Bingo! Wonder why all those CEOs with 20 yrs telco or data experience couldn't figure that out. Plus I get nervous when I hear VCs talk about paradigm shifts but they can't read a financial statement.

I know how to replace the PX, get a MEMS based DMS100, all optical class 5!

As the mantra used to be, It would be interesting to know " what the value proposition" that Marketing will be promoting after the death of PX

re: Study HighLights Long-Haul Differences
In a way the results of the study were obvious...

Companies will either peddle what they have, or
they will peddle what their competitors don't
have.

So, Fujitsu and Ciena peddle 10G with OEO switch
and Lucent and Nortel peddle 40G with OOO switch.

re: Study HighLights Long-Haul Differences

I'll bet someone on these boards can take a swag at some of these costs.

Anyone wanna take a shot? +/- 25%, right?
