Cable interconnecting Cat. 3550 and 3560

What would be an appropiate cable connecting the 3550 catalyst and the 3560?

3550 has 2 gbic ports, while the 3560 has 4 spf module slots.

Hi

You will need an LC-to-SC fibre-optic cable.

The LC end is for the SFP and the SC-end is for the GBIC. However, you need to know what sort of GBICs/SFPs you are using - single-mode or multimode, since the cable type depends on that...There are also different cables for LX and SX transceivers.

Hope that helps - pls rate posts that help.

Adding to the previous post:

LX transcievers will work with both single-mode and multi-mode fiber cable.

SX transcievers will work with only multi-mode fiber cable.

Re: Cable interconnecting Cat. 3550 and 3560

. Can the Cisco Catalyst 3560 Series switches support the GigaStack® or StackWise™ technology?

A. The Cisco Catalyst 3560 switches do not support the Cisco GigaStack Technology on the Catalyst 3550, 2950G, and 3500 XLs or the Cisco StackWise technology available on the Catalyst 3750. However, a cluster of any combination of these platforms can be managed via a single IP address using the Cisco Network Assistant (CAN) software. There are more details on CNA later in this document.
