I currently have a Multimode fiber run from an old HP Advance Stack Hub to a fiber patch panel. From there is travels about 350 feet into another patch panel, and then travels through a 10 fiber patch cable into the HP 10 Base T converter in the picture.
The HP Advance stack will be going away (finally) the fiber connection will be initiated in a Cisco 2950 from its SFP or possible a 3560G-12PS.
The fiber run will not change, just the equipment at both ends, except that I will probably mount the new converter in the fiber patch box at the end point, and do away with one fiber link. So I would need a converter with ST and not SC.
Some of these converters are confusing to me. I need to remove the 10 Base T converter, and place a 100 or a 100/1000 in its place. Can someone point me to the right converter? I have been looking at TrendNet, but thats not essential.
Also, I specified 100/1000 converter because I might opt to give that user a 1000gbit connection, but I might also want to throttle them back to a 100. I assume I can buy a converter that will do either?
Can I also assume that either will work just because the 10BaseT converter in place now works fine? Any Gotch-ya! here I need to consider?
