Good idea, I'm gonna try that... :) For scaling past that, Cisco makes CWDM GBICs that operate in existing gear, where you can get 8 wavelengths and run them over a WDM splitter. Alas no one that I know of makes a simple cheap 1U box that does 8xGigE in and 1 fiber pair out. -- Richard A Steenbergen <[email protected]> http://www.e-gerbil.net/ras GPG Key ID: 0xF8B12CBC (7535 7F59 8204 ED1F CC1C 53AF 4C41 5ECA F8B1 2CBC)
