10G switch that is stackable, uses fibre ports and has options to reverse airflow

Hi, anyone help me here, I am looking for a 10G switch that is stackable, uses fibre ports and has options to reverse airflow
So far, I looked at the following


WS-C3850-48XS-F but annoyingly this switch does not support stacking, the rest of the series don't have airflow options
9300 series are mostly copper and do not look to offer airflow options
Nexus do not offer stacking


I am sure I’m missing something here, anyone able to point me to the right switch

Re: 10G switch that is stackable, uses fibre ports and has options to reverse airflow

Hello,

If airflow is a matter for you, i suppose that you are considering installing this switch in datacenter?

When you say "Nexus do not offer stacking", do you consider deploying :

  • two Nexus parent switch (let say N9K-C93180YC-EX)
  • up to 16 Nexus 2K fex as you need(let say N2K-C2348UPQ for 48 ports 10Gb/s SFP+)

The choice offered on the enterprise class product is more limited as airflow is not really a matter inside corporate building.
