Thanks for reply . In case in eight 3550 switch cluster, if one of them 3550 fails then we can replace with any 2960 switch.

Take note that the 3550, 2950/3550 switches CAN use the GigaStacking GBIC while the 2960 can't. What do you use for your uplink? You can use either fiberoptic or copper.

Yes, you are absoultely right. You got right point. I am using the 3350 and Gigastack GBIC for uplink. The 2960 has the SFP ports. I did not find any equivalent in SFP. I hope Cisco does not have any.


I guess I can use GLC-SX-MM SFP in 2960 and WS-G5484 GBIC in 3550 and use it as uplink with SC-LC fiber patch chords

Thanks for the rating.


There's no replacement for the GigaStacking GBIC. But the clustering will also work with

either fiber or copper uplinks.
