Hi,

I need to know if the new catalyst 2960-S support on the same model both uplink type for 1gig & 10gig?

how can we migrate from 1gig to 10gig with this same switch?

regards.

If you want to use 10GB, then you must use the SFP+ and for 1GB you can use SFP. The switch will support either one. Does that answer your question?

is the SFP+ support both speed 1gig & 10gig or we must change the transceiver to SFP if we need just 1gig?

I believe the 10GB SFP+ is 10GB only. I'll see if I can find a supporting document.

Collin is right.  The SFP+ will only support 10Gb and does not auto-negotiate to any other speed.
