bridged traffic through a 3560

Can I have async (POS terminals) traffic come over a fiber link into a 3560 SFP port, then have the 3560 uplink to a 28xx router to forward over a WAN? How would/could the async traffic go from the switch to the router? SFP patch cable? GigE CAT5? Thanks.

Re: bridged traffic through a 3560

If traffic coming from a customer network is not tagged (native VLAN frames), these packets are bridged or routed as normal packets. All packets entering the service-provider network through a tunnel port on an edge switch are treated as untagged packets, whether they are untagged or already tagged with 802.1Q headers. The packets are encapsulated with the metro tag VLAN ID (set to the access VLAN of the tunnel port) when they are sent through the service-provider network on an 802.1Q trunk port. The priority field on the metro tag is set to the interface class of service (CoS) priority configured on the tunnel port. (The default is zero if none is configured.)
