Are the following Switches supporting SM or MM fiber Patch Cords cables

gentelemen,

we recived the following switches.

WS-C4507R-ECat4500 E-Series 7-Slot Chassis, fan, no ps, Red Sup Capable
WS-C2960S-24TS-SCatalyst 2960S 24 GigE, 2 x SFP LAN Lite
WS-C3750X-24T-SCatalyst 3750X 24 Port Data IP Base
GLC-LH-SMGE SFP, LC connector LX/LH transceiver

The current situation that all existing Fiber Patch Cords cables & fiber cables coming from field are multimode. So, I think we have a compatibility issues. We need clarifications from your, what are the options that we can do to resolve this issue.

  • Can we connect the above switches to multimode Fiber Patch Cords cables?

Hi hani,

I am sure that they support because I have used those 2960 and 3750 for one of my customer and we used MMF (multimode fiber) only.
The 1G or 10G SFP slots you have on the switches, so you need to have the exact SFP modules to support multimode fiber.

We used the following modules..

Uplinks 10G Modules: SFP-10GB-SR/LRM
Switch interconnecting modules: SFP-H10GB-CU3M
1G SFP fiber Module: GLC-SX-MM


Please rate all the helpfull posts.
Regards,
Naidu.
