HP Procurve J3295A question

I have three lan cabinets with a fiber connection between them.  in each cabinet, the fiber connection comes into a
HPJ2600A 12 port Hub.

We also have access to several procurves above, wich are 10/100.  I know I could by a few used . . . .but do they accept a fiber connection?  I would like to do away with the HP2600A's in each building and put two Procurve J3295A in their places, if I can get one of them to accept a fiber connection.  

If not, what other piece of equipment would you recommend instead of the procurve J3295A??  I know 10/100 is a bit older than 10/100/1000 in the newer units. But we're talking bardin basement here.

HP says the prcurve J3295a's can only be stacked two high anyway. I may need more than 48 ports in at least one of these locations.

Thanks for the help!

Look my friend you can opt HP Procurve 2650 Switch which comes with 24/48  10/100 UTP ports & 2 Fiber ports . Here is the link for this switch. Since exsisitng switch doesnot support fiber u can always use a media convertor .

You have plenty of options if u need 10/100 with 2 fiber ports u can opt

HP 2510 http://www.hp.com/rnd/products/switches/ProCurve_Switch_2510_Series/specs.htm?jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

or 2600

http://www.hp.com/rnd/products/switches/switch2600series/overview.htm

If u need giga switch u can opt 3300

http://www.hp.com/rnd/products/switches/switch3400series/overview.htm

As far as media convertor is concerned u can get details from this link

If u need any more info do let me know

cheers

So, I could certainly stick with Procurve J3295a as long as I don't need more than 48 ports (AND understanding they will only work at 10/100 and no faster). And then I simply purchase a converter?

I assume J3295As are avialable.

If not, and I wanted to stick with that type (i.e. no 1000, just 10/100) and use a external converter, which of these units is closest?
