We are wishing to fiber together two parts of our building, to create a better backbone.   We want to use Cisco SLM248P , they have mini GBIC fiber ports the questions we have is, first what type of Fiber cable do we buy ?  I got asked several questions I didn’t know the answer to.

1.      Such as is it single mode or multimode ?
2.      Do we want 50 or 60.5 micron
3.      What type of connector do we need on the ends that go into the switch.  

Just looking for the best solution as I am not the fiber expert.
