Description:1) The definition of an additional FC Physical Variant using single-mode fibre plant, with transmitter and receiver characteristics which permit a substantially reduced optical component cost than allowed by the 10 Kilometer Physical Variants which are already defined in X3.230, FC-PH and X3.297, FC-PH-2.
2) The definition of interoperability, where possible, between parts meeting the requirements of the new physical variant and parts meeting the requirements of existing physical variants.
Note that this project will define an additional physical variant, and will not amend or remove any of the existing physical variant definitions.

T11 History:T11 approved PP in 10/97 by rollcall of F60-O00-DNV24. Cover Letter is 97-351.
An online T11 Letter Ballot on FC-10KCR Revision 2.0 (T11/98-052v2) closed on 5/30/98 with F56-O01-DNV23 (4 for ballots included comments). On 5/30/98 T11 had 80 members, and thus this vote also met the 2/3rds rule. However it was unanimously agreed at the T11 Plenary at St. Petersburg Beach, FL on June 11, 1998 that the draft would be held in T11 while resolution of the comments was attempted.
At the T11 Plenary at Portsmouth, United Kingdom on August 13, 1998, a motion "to accept the responses to the T11 Letter Ballot comments, and to forward FC-10KCR Revision 3.0 (T11/98- 370v0) for further processing including an OMC Compliance Review and a first Public Review" was approved by a rollcall vote of F48-O00-DNV29. On 8/13/98 T11 had 77
members, thus this vote met the 2/3 rds rule. The covering letter was 98-443v0, the Expository Remarks 98-441v0.
