You need the converter module, part # CVR-X2-SFP.
Please refer to the data sheet:
what about with
10GB X2 Module for Cisco Catalyst 3560-E Series
Is it necessary?
10GBASE-ER X2 Module
10GBASE-LR X2 Module
10GBASE-SR X2 Module
10GBASE-LRM X2 Module
10GBASE-LX4 X2 Module
10GBASE-CX4 X2 Module
My apologies, I was incorrect in my previous post.
The modules you've listed are the one to purchase for the X2-10GB connection.
The converter I mentioned is to provide 1GB connection via that same interface.
Yes you do. You need a pair: local and remote. Before you make the purchase, make sure the remote can support 10Gb modules: XENPAK or X2.
With all de the comments, my conclussion is the next.
Could you confirm? thank you! :)
See the following link it tells the distance you can reach over different kind od MM fiber.
check what kind of MMF(Multimode Fiber) you have and what is the distance between Core and access switch.
If youhave FDDI-grade, OM1 and OM2 fibers to meet the distance mentioned you need to order 2 mode conditioning patch cord.
I have the same situation where the customer wants to go 10gig at the core 4510R switch, but the unlink to a 4506 is currently 1 gig. So they will need to have 10gig on each end? You can't have 10gig at the core and on the other end it will just run 1 gig? Thanks for your help.
You are correct, both sides should either be 10Gb OR 1Gb. You can't have 10Gb on one end and 1Gb at the other. It won't work.
