WorldCom's DWDM capabilities/OC12 SONET vs DWDM
From: "Max's Lists" <lists () smetannikov net>

Folks: in working on a project it has come to my attention that WorldCom
doesn't seem to have a DWDM network to speak of, and reportedly has spotty
DWDM coverage only in metro areas, a fact well hidden from company's
marketing literature that seems to avoid talking about speeds above oc-3.

Two questions -- can anyone verify/offer more insights/point to better
resources on WorldCom's DWDM startegy?

And -- as the rumor mill seems to suggest -- is it indeed true that despite
obvious network economics SONET-based OC-12 and OC-48 circuits are indeed
enjoying lower street prices than DWDM oc-12/48 circuits? Any thoughts as to
why this info is indeed correct?
