In our applications with fiber (OC-12 [12 DS-3's down to individual hub
connections we use a multitude of SM and MM - MM in-plant, SM for long-haul.
This is not my forte, but it is my understanding that we use laser
transmitters for SM and LED transmitters for MM.  Is this true throughout
the industry?
