I have a design as attached, the corcern is budget. My question:
-If I use 2 access swith 2960G-24TC-L, can I use copper cable to have trunk link?
Since this series is equipped either to use copper or fiber for last 4 ports.
(No need to use fiber+sfp)
-Does it degrade the traffic quality?
-If I use 2 access sw 3560G-24PS-S, can I use the copper for trunk link.
I believe the common practice is simply using SFP for copper.
The cost would be 2 SFP for copper. I don't think so to go with SFP and running LC, this will be more expensive.
Please kindly advise.
