SFP Module (urgent)

Unanswered Question
Feb 16th, 2007

Hi All,

I have a cisco Switch (3560 G), its connected to other device through the SFP port. Now , we are occasionally facing a link failure on the port, we noticed the fiber connector on the other device is asingle mode, while we are using a tranceiver to convert the fiber to Multimode.

My question is:

why is this happening?

Does the SFP support single mode fiber?

Is there any tips of connecting the tranceiver to the SFP port for convertion?

Appreciate any help,

I have this problem too.

You get different types of SFP's: SM, MM, Copper.

Wouldn't it be beter if you had the same type of SFP as your other device? (I am assuming it has a fixed connector).
