We will be upgrading our network shortly to 10 gig in some locations. If I have a link that is a 10 gig port on one side and a 1 gig port on the other will the 10 gig port negotiate to 1 gig until the other side can be upgraded? Thanks, Joe.

Unfortunately, there isn't any auto-negotiation on the optics modules.  So, both ends of a link need to be upgraded to 10G at the same time for the link to be operational.
