GBIC/SFP w/ MTRJ Connector for 3560G Switch?

Unanswered Question
Nov 5th, 2009

I have a WS-C3560G-24PS switch with four SFP ports and I want to use the SFP ports to connect it to our backbone. Our fiber distribution boxes use ST connections. I have several ST to MTRJ 62.5/125 multimode patch cables, but I cannot find a SFP GBIC that uses a MTRJ connector. Is this possible and/or supported or do I have to get new cables & GBIC's?

I have this problem too.

I am unaware of any SFP transceiver modules that use MT-RJ connectors. They all use LC style.

To interface your SFP's LC connectors to the distribution boxes ST connectors, you can purchase fiber jumper cables with ST on one end and LC on the other.

Tom's right. MTRJ is not available in SFP, however, you can purchase ST-LC fibre optic patch cables.
