1000 Base - ZX SPF

We are thinking about to install two 3560s with 1000 Base - ZX SPF to drive a long haul circuit which is about 20 miles. Anyone can give some comments and share some experience about it? Thanks so much.

Re: 1000 Base - ZX SPF

20 miles is well within the distance specification for a ZX. For wave length 1550nm and with fiber type SMF with core size 8.3/9/10 micron the maximum distance is43.5 miles (70 km) >> (The minimum link distance for ZX GBICs is 6.2 miles (10 km) with an 8-dB attenuator installed at each end of the link. Without attenuators, the minimum link distance is 24.9 miles (40 km)) and 62.1 miles (100 km) with Dispersion-shifted single-mode fiber-optic cable.
