SGE2000P Stack Port & Combo GBIC Port Questions

I am looking for some information on the Stack and GBIC ports on the SGE2000P.  I have reviewed the documentation on the Cisco site, with no luck.

Stack Ports

1. Am I correct that, in order to use the stacking ports, I have to give up using ports 12 and 24 for normal Ethernet connectivity?

2. Assuming I set up the stack in a ring format, what is the switch-to-switch throughput?

3. In a ring format, do the switches communicate over both stack ports at the same time, or is it active/passive?

Combo GBIC Ports


1. What is the model number of the SFP GBIC recommended for these switches?  (I am used to the Cisco GLC-SX-MM for my Cisco Catalyst switches, but many vendors have been quoting the MGBSX1 instead.  Will either work?)

2. Since these are “combo” ports, do I have to give up one Gig Ethernet port for each GBIC port used?

3. If so, does each GBIC port have a specific Gig Ethernet port that it corresponds with?  What are they?
