   But what *else* are you running over fiber?  The only applications 
I've seen for fiber in recent years are GigE, FibreChannel, and FDDI.  
(I'm not a telecom guy)

   So based on what you said, I assume you're using 62.5/125 for GigE?  
I've not seen much GigE, but what I have seen was all 50/125.
