Re: poll: are any sizable exchange points using gigabit ether?
>Problem with gigE is distance though... >So ATM may be the answer for the short term. > Long Haul GE is capable of the usual ~5-10 mile distances as anything else running over singlemode fiber. In theory it could be run over sonet, though I don't believe hardware exists to do that (yet?) or if it would be worthwhile. There appear to be (http://www.positronfiber.com/pfs/nav/products/ether_set.htm) devices to run fast ether over sonet. Anyone actually using something like this care to comment? Austin
