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?
Legacy 10baseFL/100baseFX/FDDI can run fairly long distances over OM1.
In the past I've run 100baseFX over OM1 runs with multiple cross-connects,
out to about 2 km.
