2960 dual purpose uplink ports

Answered Question

Hello folks, I just need to confirm the uplink ports for the 2960.


The Data sheet shows.....


WS-C2960-24TC-L

• 24 Ethernet 10/100 ports and 2 dual-purpose uplinks (each dual-purpose uplink port has one 10/100/1000 Ethernet port and 1 SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet port, 1 port active)

• 1 RU fixed-configuration

• LAN Base Image installed


Does this mean that I can only have 1 active uplink port (interface) at a time?


Or


Does it mean that I can use either Copper or Fiber at a time?


Thanks in advance I appreciate your help.


Regards,


JP

JP,


The C2960-24TC-L has 2 dual-purpose ports which means that either the SPF or RJ-45 port can be used at one time.

Or one port as copper and one port as SFP.


Basically, the a copper and SFP port are paired, either of the pair can be used, but not both of the same pair at the same time.


As you have two uplinks, you have two pairs.
