Dear all,

I'm planning to connect 5 campus locations which are close to 350 meters from my 4507R-E core.

My plan is to lay single mode fiber to the core, my questions are.

1. Planning to buy Ws-X4606-X2-E, in this module do i need to buy X2-10Gb modules

to terminate the fibers or is it included.

2. If i have to buy these X2-10Gb modules which one should i use to run over single mode fiber

as i have told my distance will be 300 to 350 meters.

3. at the remote office site im planning to buy 3750-E to connect the X2-10Gb but exactly which X2

model should i buy

4. if iwant to stack a 3750-E and an ordinary 3750, an ordinary stack cable will do the job?

I will rate all the posts.

Hello Binoy,

1) optical modules are seen as distinct parts so you need to order them


here it is the compatibility matrix for 10Ge


X2-10GB-LR is a good candidate

3) the same type


notice the documents provide also the minimum IOS version for each platform

4) this is possible the stack ring will go at 32 Gbps a stack made only of 3750E has a 64 Gbps ring

Hope to help

1) Modular models only come with the interfaces for those modules, you need to purchase the modules separately at an additional cost.

2)10GBASE-LR will provide 10km

3) If you don't require port-density and PoE 3750E-24TD, if you need PoE 3750E-24PD

If you need port-density w/o PoE 3750E-48TD and w/ PoE 3750E-48PD.

4. Yes.
