Sweet. As an operator, this is exactly what I'm looking for.

The 40km reach Transceivers will probably require attenuators for
reaches below 10km, similar to restrictions on 10GBASE-ZR 80km modules

That stands to reason...

Also, I have enclosed an article that was published in this month's IEEE
Communications Magazine on 100GE Technologies which may give you more
details on the types of solutions that will be forthcoming.

Wow, I had no idea that the NANOG mailing list accepted attachments.
Someone oughta fix that, heh.
