RE: Cisco HFR

I think this is more of an initial offering; at this speed there
have to be problems with dispersion over longer distances, this would
need to be solved as well as other issues before longer distances would
be permissible; plus I don't know of any regen/amplifier equipment that
would handle this that is on the market yet (I may be wrong). There is
also the need of OC-768 speeds; I don't think the need quite there yet
(Even with the nice demonstration that Cisco gave during the Web cast);
OC-48 and OC-192s are still the leaders for this.
