I need to expand my LAN. Currently i use the 2950G-24-EI. This is end of life now. So i need to buy another type to uplink to the 2950G-24-EI. My 2950G-24-EI has a GBIC card. I need a switch that comes as close to the 2950G-24-EI and still be able to uplink them. what's the best choice?
For copper link you can use GLC-T= module on the 2960.
If you are planning to buy a 2960-TC-L then it comes with 2 SFP/or RJ45 uplinks(any one can be used at one given time).
So in effect you do not require modules at all :-)
