Connecting a 3548 to a 3550-12T.

I have a 3548 and would like to do a gigabit connection to a 3550-12T. Both switches are in the same building but different floors with cat5e between them at a distance of 120feet. I plan on using the new 1000BaseT GBIC in the 3548 to link with a 10/100/1000 port on the 3550-12T thru the cat5e in-building wiring. Will this work?

I just want to make sure I have my logic correct. Thanks in advance.

You are within distance spec's, cabling spec's, and the hardware is supported (see link below) so no problems that I see.

One quick note: make sure that the cable you are planning on connecting these switches together with is a crossover cable and not staright-thru. I have seen this missed many more times than I like to admit...
