I have a Cisco Catalyst 4507R switch and a few other Cisco 2950 and 3560 switches. I'm expanding my network (data and voice) into another office in the same building on another floor. The new office on the other flooor will have voip, existing floor has digital phones. I need to have a fiber connection run into the new office space. These are the questions I need to have answers for:
1. What type of fiber cable do I need to run from the cisco switch to the new switch I need to purchase for the new office space? Do I run it from the 4507R switch? On that switch there are 4 fiber ports, two are already being used to connect to 2 other 3560 switches. Do I just purchase a new fiber cable to go from the 4507R to the new switch, what type? I woudl need about 300 feet or so.
2. What type of poe switch should I purchase for the new office space. I'm looking at a Cisco Catalyst 2960-48PST-S - switch - 48 ports - managed - rack-mountable? This switch will also be used to power the IP phones.
Attached is a picture of the 4507R switch that has 2 free fiber ports available (I assume I would use that one?), the other 2 with the fiber cables in them each to to a different 3560 switch.
Anything else I need to think of?
