Cisco Fiber Switch options?

Hi,

I need a switch which will accommodate 32 x LC single mode fiber SFP modules. I've used smaller metro switches in the past with 12 SFP ports but am unsure about the Cisco range.

Could someone recommend a switch that could do this? I've seen the MDS 9148 but am unsure if I can utilise the ports this way.

Any pointers would be helpful.

Thanks,

Hi,You can use a Cisco 5548.

Hi,

You can use a Cisco 5548. It comes with 32 1/10Gig ports.  If you add the additional 16 port module you can go up to 48 ports. All ports are LC and you can use Multi-mode or single mode SFPs or SFP+. The switch is 1RU.

Is there any recommendation

Is there any recommendation against Nexus 3K?  For example 3172PQ (or even older ones, like 3064X) could match the requirements.

There's also the 4500-X...
