I'd much rather pay $1,300 for > the LAN links than $2,600 for the Campus links. Previously cited vendor data indicates 'under 10km' links out-number 10-40km ones by a factor of 10x or more. Is there a similar break-down of 'under 4km' vs '4-10km' links? Also, is there data on what share of links is 'close' to either limit figure? e.g. 3.9km links that might require 10km optics to overcome other obstacles, or 4.1km links that are 'clean enough' that 4km optics might work. (not looking for share where these things _are_ true, just the share where such things _might_ be possible because they're 'close to the limit') At the price-points shown above, if 95% of the 'under 10km' links are 'under 4km', and only 10% of the total links are '10-40km', the 10 km / 40km options are the least expensive (barely) aggregate. if the distribution is 90% under 4km, 5% 4-10km, 5% 10-40km, 4km/40km is less expensive (circa 15% less) in the aggregate. If the 4-10km link share is more than around 4% of all less than 40km links, the 10km optin for 'short haul' will bne less costly, if you limit things to 2 options.
