Does there exist a Cisco switch with only Gbics ports or a fiber?

I have a fiber network with 4 fiber pairs terminating at one station where I have a Cisco 3550 switch. I can connect 2 of the fiber pairs to the 2 gbics in the 3550, but how can I get all 4 connected?  

Does Cisco make a small level 2 switch that has, say, 4 gbics ports and no fastethernet?

Yes, the WS-C3508G-XL-EN will provide you the fiber connections that you need but it is not a currently supported product. You can get them pretty reasonably from ebay or other used harware vendors. Cisco stopped selling this model new back in 2005, so it is pretty old.

The WS-C3750X-12S-S is the latest model with 12 fiber ports.
The WS-C3750G-12S-S is the previous, but still available model for a bit less $$

There is the 3750 series which has a 12 port sfp model. Most of their recent 48 port switches also have 4 sfp ports on them.

Hi,

The cisco WS-C3560X-24T (available with LANbase or IPbase IOS) is a 24 x 10/100/1000 switch. You can purchase the C3KX-NM-1G= module which gives you 4 SFP gigabit ethernet ports.

Thanks. We know we are using old and cheap equipment. I think it is fitting.
