I am looking to purchase an industrial ethernet switch for a remote facility that does not have the proper environmental conditions for a commercial grade switch. In environmentally conditioned facilities I use a 3560G. Two of the SFP ports are used to create a 2G channel back to a 6500 in the MDF location. One of the Gig ports is configured as a 802.1q tunnel and the client connects their switch to that port.
Ideally I would like to have an IE switch with 3 Gig ports but Cisco doesn't seem to have one.
So, my question is this:
Can I configure one of the 100M ports as an 802.1q tunnel or is that capability limited to Gig ports?
Thanks for the assistance.
