I'm using gigabit 1000Base-LX/LH to link a 4507 to some 2950 and i found that when i launch a show interfaces gigaX/X on the 4507 it tells "media type is LH", but when i launch the same command in the 2950 they say "media type is LX".
They both are using exactly the same WS-G5486 connectors, then why is different the media type?, and what does that mind?.
(it's identified as "1000-LX/LH" on Cat4000, 6000).
"fully complies with the IEEE 802.3z 1000BASE-LX standard. However, its higher optical quality allows it to reach 6.2 miles (10 kilometers) over single-mode fiber (SMF), compared with the 3.1 miles (5 km) specified in the standard."
