Thanks to all who responded to my clumsy first question (both on
matters of etiquette and technology). The group I work with (we are a
small project acting as a last mile provider) was in the midst of
deploying this solution when I posed the question. We put the single
mode Juniper SFPs (LX) on to a run of approximately 1670 meters.

How did you end up with a MM run this long?  SX optics are only rated at
500 meters at best.  Even with mode conditioning jumpers more the 1km is a
risk.  I'm glad it held up during testing though.  Just out of curiosity
did you purchase dark from a provider?  Is it inside of a building?

In my case, it was installed for compatibility with FDDI, and used
mostly for 10BASE-FL and 100BASE-FX, which work up to 1 or 2km, until
we started using it for 1000BASE-LX.
