A bit of both. :-) I think it's just short of 100 Km in total, but with
several patch cords/ODFs along the way. Some of these can be removed but
removing all would probably make too expensive compared to what we win
by running 10G.

Hadn't thought of the G.709 angle. But since it still requires external
equipment (for a 6500) the amplification path is probably easier.
