GB Fiber input, without trancievers.
Posted on 2004-10-29
I've got a couple of users in a remote building, connected to our Cisco switches by a Media Converter (Tranceiver) into a Fiber run to their building. At their end we have another MC. which is then converted back into Ethernet into a small switch. There are two computers and a networked printer. We have 8 fiber ports still available in our Cisco switch stack.
I would like to run the fiber directly from our Main switches into one of the user's computer. But I would still need to hook up the other two connections. I am aware that I can get a Fiber PCI card for the one user but what about the other two connections. I have seen the Fiber/Copper Combo cards but I don't think I can use both connections at the same time.
That would be ideal if I could, just run the Fiber in and a Cat5e out to the other connections.
