Max length StackWise Cable

I have read that 1m and 3m cables are available in addition to the default 0.5m StackWise cable. Is 3m the maximum length available.

Basically I am looking to connect switches on different floors utilising the 32Gbps connectivity provided, or is this not possible or is there a better way to get high bandwidth between floors? TIA

Yes, 3m is the maximum length available.

Use multiple connections in a etherchannel to get more bandwidth between the floors:

Check these links:

"How to configure port channeling on the Catalyst 2900XL, 3500XL, 2940, 2950, 2955, 2970, 3550 or 3750 series switches"
