Cisco and Cabletron

I am looking at expanding our current network. I need to know if the 2948 will work with the Cabletron SmartStack Fast-Ethernet switch? Specifically, I am concerned about the fiber trunks between the two. I know the 2948 uses a GBIC and the Cabletron uses a FE100FX connector, but are these two "friendly"? I would be using the dot1q trunking protocol, but not sure if they've ever been tested. Please let me know either way.

Re: Cisco and Cabletron

The CAT2948G does not have 100BaseFX ports. CAT2948G has 48 10/100BaseT and 2 1000BaseX ports. So you'll have to use some media convertor inbetween. Cat2948G supports dot1q trunking and so you should be fine with trunking

Also we have CAT2948G(layer2) and CAT2948G-L3(layer 3 switch). Just an FYI
