I am having a fiber for internet converted to ethernet using ISP's media convertor . Now that media convertor is not that good and hangs sometimes . Edge equipment is ASA and if I need to put fiber there I would require to puchase SSM-4GE which is quite expensive at the moment for us . I was thinking if I can put the Fiber into Layer 2 switch and take out an ethernet cable from switch to firewall . Put both those ports into VLAN xxx and put ip address to the firewall .
This solution should work and in this case the L2 switch would become media convertor ( 2960S ) . If this is correct can I use this kind of setup on mass scale ?
I will need to talk to ISP to check out if they are using the media convertor for any other purpose . But if ISP says that you can pick up that fiber directly and put into ASA/Switch/RTR then I can try that solution right ?
