I understand that there are severe distance limitations when running 10 GB over MMF. However, when I bring this up everyone wants to know what the maximum distance is. Does anyone have a link to a document in fairly easy language (CIO language) that clearly shows the distance limitations?
Beyond distance limitations you might also consider the increased capacity that SMF provides. I believe 50/125 MMF has about 2Ghz of bandwidth, while a SMF 8/125 has around 100 TERAhertz. Might not put that extra capacity to use immediately using existing standards, but it might come in handy down the road (especially if future standards--40gig, 100gig--mandate shorter distances).
Also, while the SMF optics are more expensive, you can make up a lot of that because the cable itself is cheaper.
