Which CISCO switch supports SFP, SFP+ and 10G ethernet ports

I would like to have information about a CISCO switch which can support fiber ports SFP(1g) and SFP+(10g) and copper 1g and 10g ethernet ports. And will it also software upgradable to support L3 protocols ?

You know your requirements and your budget.Difficult to say based on the info of 2 lines which product will fit your requirement. First switch which fits into the above description is 3560E and there are many more .

Check Cisco products page for more info

Have you tried using the following Cisco switch selector..

It may help narrow things down. Good luck!

You can choose from the Cisco 3560-E, 4900, 4500, and 6500 series switches. That's in order of capability (and cost!), from least to greatest.

The 3560-E and 4900 series are fixed chassis systems (the 4900M is semi-modular) while the 4500 and 6500 series are completely modular - buy the chassis and populate it according to your requirements.

In addition to the references cited above, also refer to the Cisco Products Quick Reference Guide (CPQRG), available at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/qrg/index.html

Hope this helps. Please rate this post if it does.

Hello

It depends to your budget and the number of ports required.

10G-SFP+ are only on Nexus 7000 and 5000 available

10G-X2 ports with more then 2 ports mixed with 1G-SFP are on 6500 with Sup720 and 67XX modules available.

On 3560E-12D are 12 ports 10G-X2 available.

On 3560E-12SD are 2 ports 10G-X2 and 12 ports 1G-SFP available.

With “twingig” converter can 1 port X2-10gig used with 2x 1Gig-SFP

10G Ethernet = Nexus

1G Ethernet = 3560/3560-E, 3750/3750-E, 4500, 6500, 7200

1G SFP = 3560/3560-E, 3750/3750-E, 4500, 6500, 7200

10Gig Fibre (X2/XENPAK) = 3560-E, 3750-E/ME 3750, 4500, 6500, 7200, ME3400 and other Metro Ethernet switches

And will it also software upgradable to support L3 protocols ? < --- Just buy the license and you are good to go.
