I am looking at linking four switches with fibre a star network format. So one switch will have three fibre runs going from it. Firstly, how many cores does each run need? I assume that each connection will need two cores one for send and one for recieve, is this correct?
Secondly will standard cable work for a 1 gig connection?
Thirdly do you know how many mini GBIC (SFT) ports the D link DEM-312gt2 fibre transiever requires. I assume just the one but some metioned that maybe two are required.
