Need Information about More ports Fiber Optic Switches

Hiii Guys,

I need information about which Cisco Switch consist more Fiber Optic Ports. I knew one model Cisco (WS-C3750G-12S-E) Catalyst 3750G-12S-12 Gigabit Ethernet SFP ports. But we can using this we can make stacking up to 9 devices. Even though I need more than 12 ports in single device. Could any one help me out in this.

Hi Sayed,

Please take a look at the 3560E-12SD:

[edit] Sorry, didn't catch from the first post reading that you've considered stacking (the 3560 doesn't support stacking).

For more than 12 fiber ports on a single device you'll need to go for the 4500 series with the appropriate modules:

Cisco Catalyst 4500 and 4500-E Series Line Cards

WS-X4418-GB Cisco Catalyst 4500 Gigabit Ethernet Module, server switching 18 ports (GBIC).

Hi,

Also check this module:

WS-X4448-GB-SFP Cisco Catalyst 4500 Gigabit Ethernet Module, 48-ports 1000X (SFP)

But please do note that all these modules oversubscribe the ports, please check the specs of each.

BR,

Mohammed Mahmoud.

Re: Need Information about More ports Fiber Optic Switches

You should be able to stack up to 9 3750s of any model. (Although you can bump into issues if you mix feature sets, e.g. the difference your WS-C3750G-12S-E and WS-C3750G-12S-S, or between IOS versions.) You can also mix the 3750 and 3750-E series within the same stack. (With discontination of the 3750G-16TD, only method to get 10 gig to the stack.)

If you need more than 108 fiber gig ports in a single 3750 (stack) "device", you'll need to consider the chassis solutions. For instance, the 6500's WS-X6748-SFP provides 48 ports or up to 384 fiber gig ports for a 6509.
