Gigabit fibre modules on the 5509 series switch use GBIC interfaces.

Cisco part numbers are as follows

  • 1000BaseSX (WS-G5484)
  • 1000BaseLX/LH (WS-G5486)
  • 1000BaseZX (WS-G5487)

The SX is good for up to 550 metres, depending on cable specifications, the LX/LH is good for up to 10 kilometres, depending on cable type (550 metres on everything except single mode fibre), and the ZX is good for up to 100 kilometres (single mode fibre only).

If you google for "cisco GBIC retail" you can find places to guy them from.

Cheers.
