hi Guys ,

quick question in relation to joining two switches together,

can I link a 2950 switch with a 1000 BASE-SX with a 3560G with 4 SPF ports with fibre and what pitfalls should i look out for .

Thanks in advance

yes you can do that.

you would require 1000 BASE-SX module which requires SC connectors on the 2950.

While on the other hand the 3560G would require SFP i.e GLC-SX-MM= module and the LC connector

I do not see of any pitfalls in this scenario and we have used it successfully in our networks.

HTH, rate if it does

when you say LC and SC what do you mean ,

I have the 1000 base-Sx in the 2950 , I ll check the 3560G.

Thanks

These are the connectors you need to use with the modules.

Have a lok at this link for the cable types

Hi,

As a reference for the fiber connectors use the attached diagram.

HTH,

Hello,

So you would like to connect GBIC to SFP, you need Multimode Duplex Fiber Optical cable with SC-LC connectors. If SFP to SFP you need the same cably type with LC-LC connectors.
