RE: 3rd Party Cisco CWDM GBICs?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Be aware that on most types of fiber the loss in the 1400nm range is so high (due to H2O in the glass) that it is unusable. Some manufacturers are now using a process that extracts all, or nearly all, of the H2O out of the glass to make that range useable. OFS Allwave claims to be doing that.
