Optical link bandwidth optimization techniques to optimize the cost-performance of a link are presented. As the data rate increases, fiber attenuation is no longer the limiting factor of the operating distance; instead, the bandwidth becomes the limiting factor. Therefore, it is essential to optimize the bandwidth utilization of a fiber to achieve better cost-performance over copper communications. Since the Fibre Channel standard uses a wide variety of light sources and fiber types, it is critical for the Fibre Channel standard to optimize its operating distances
