installing a fiber backbone
Posted on 2006-05-26
I need recommendations on good fiber/cat5 switches.
There are two schools and one church that make up the WAN. The highschool is connected to the church/k6 campus via a T1. All of this is cabled with Cat 5e. We want to install a fiber backbone. When we bring in the fiber, we will need to terminate it into a fiber switch. From there, we will run one strand of fiber to each of the buildings, and tie into the cat 5 there, so at each building, I'll need a fiber/cat 5 switch with one or two fiber ins and 48 or so cat 5 ports out.
Can I get some ideas on some makes and models for each applpication?
