Have a situation where I will potentially have a 200MB WAN link coming in to my Core (Cat4006) switch. I am looking at simply placing a 2821 series router with GigE capable interfaces to support this incoming traffic.
My 4006 switching module does not support GigE speeds on the Ethernet ports as it is only a 10/100 card. I do have two 1000Base-X ports on my routing module (WS-X4232-L3), so are there any adapters that will allow me to connect the 2821 10/100/1000 interface to the 1000Base-X interface to benefit from GigE there.
Chassis has a Sup II and the following details are from the sh ver on switch.

I was going to say, 28XX isn't going to have an SFP module, but a 38XX will. There are other ways to do this though. Option 1) The quickest/cheapest way would be to get a fiber optic transceiver patched to the switch... I.E. ISP - Router - Transceiver - 4006. I have a link showing some examples of transceivers here: http://fiberopticcables.stores.yahoo.net/medcon.html You'll need to match the appropriate fiber type to your GBIC and make sure to have the appropriate patch cable. Option 2) Otherwise you can look at a 3825 or 3845 and get an SFP and patch the switch directly to the router.
Either way will work, just depends on your budget.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
