linking two switches together.

hi Guys ,

quick question in relation to joining two switches together,

can I link a 2950 switch with a 1000 BASE-SX with a 3560G with 4 SPF ports with fibre and what pitfalls should i look out for .

Thanks in advance

Kevin

Re: linking two switches together.

yes you can do that.

you would require 1000 BASE-SX module which requires SC connectors on the 2950.

While on the other hand the 3560G would require SFP i.e GLC-SX-MM= module and the LC connector

I do not see of any pitfalls in this scenario and we have used it successfully in our networks.

HTH, rate if it does

I have the 1000 base-Sx in the 2950 , I ll check the 3560G.

Re: linking two switches together.

These are the connectors you need to use with the modules.

Have a lok at this link for the cable types

Hi,

As a reference for the fiber connectors use the attached diagram.

Re: linking two switches together.

Hello,

So you would like to connect GBIC to SFP, you need Multimode Duplex Fiber Optical cable with SC-LC connectors. If SFP to SFP you need the same cably type with LC-LC connectors.
