Go with the fiber channel definitions. Although there are many conflicting
statements in the various sections, copper, jitter, FCPI etc, most of what
you will find in a broader spectrum of inputs has crept in there.

FCI will be benchmarking a number of cable constructions based on the
bandwidth/channel in Gbps.  I'm looking for a "standard" signaling protocol

I'm leaning towards using the fibre channel inputs and mask as a baseline
since it is readily recognizable to many people.  Does anyone have a more
meaningful definition of eye characteristics?
