Transceiver Modules - Ethernet or Fibre

Are there any performance benefit to using fibre transceiver modules rather than the ethernet GLC-T? The cabling distance is only going to be about 5 metres.

Many thanks

Mark

Re: Transceiver Modules - Ethernet or Fibre

In short, No.

You will not have a performance benefit of one over the other.

Fiber can provide much longer paths than copper can but you would not notice a speed enhancement.

Benefits of copper are lower cost, easier termination and it is harder to damage.
