Hello Guys,

I am building a Metro Ethernet network and I would like to know what is the best switch that has at least two 10GE ports and does have DWDM connectors or are able to hold DWDM gbics.

I have found this switch here,
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/switches/ps5718/ps6021/ps6230/prod_bulletin0900aecd80246560.html

It has two 10GE ports, but what kind of connector/gbic should I install on them ? Am I able to use DWDM optical fiber ? How ?

Thanks.
