Fiber optic switch connection and Samsung PTZ Cameras

I have a good question. Okay here is the set up we have Network PTZ cameras and we are going to connect them using fiber optic switches, we are going to use Cisco Smart Switches to be precise Catalyst Series 2900 with 2x SFP slots. Now my problem is the PTZ Protocol. Will the PTZ signal pass to the Cisco switch? Because someone informed me that Cisco and Pelco has something that they are sort of connected to them and the PTZ function might not work so I am concern about the protocol stuff. Can I control the PTZ function if I am going to use a Cisco switch? We are going to use Samsung Network PTZ cameras. I also read on a forum that people experience problem with PTZ control over fiber optic. Had anyone of you experience or can answer my question.

Thank you again guys!
