Connecting N7K and 3560E - Fiber Link

Unanswered Question
Feb 12th, 2010

Hi,

How can we connect 3560E switches with 1G uplink to 32 10G module using multimode fiber? In other words, can we connect SFP with SFP+ ? What would be the result?

Many thanks,

Yazeed

I have this problem too.

You can't connect a 1GB port to a 10GB port. It will not work.

Many thanks Jerry.

Is there a converter or adapter that will help achiveing that? i.e connect 1G with 10G and works as 1G link.

Cheers,

Certain 3560E has 2 Twingig converters to convert a 10GE into 2x 1GE. If you remove the Twingig converter, you can insert 10GE X2 optic and connect the 3560E and N7K with 10GE connection. In another word, I am not aware of any converter to change the N7K's 10GE to 1GE, other than getting the 1GE line card on the N7K.

HTH,

jerry
