Connect a 3750 SFP to 3548 GBIC

I want to connect the 2 using the GBIC and SFP at Gbit Speed. What are the modules needed? What cables are needed? And copper or fiber? The 2 switches are side by side.

Thank you

Hi,

If they are side by side the cheapest option would be a standard ethernet crossover cable. You'd need a GLC-T (1000Base-T SFP) on one end and a WS-G5483 (1000Base-T GBIC) on the other end.

Hi,

Another factor which will influence the selection of the SFP/GBIC is the distance.

If the two devices sit next to each other the cooper is the cheapest indeed.

What kind of switches you have?

I have a 3750 and a 3500 XL.

Hi,

There are many models within the 3500XL and 3750 series so if your switches have only 10/100 cooper ports you will need GBIC and SFP to connect them through gig. But if your switches have 10/100/1000 ports already only a crossover UTP cable needed.
