I have two projects where I am linking two buildings for data. I will be using pre-terminated 62.5 multimode fiber. I was thinking of going with SC connectors because this seems to be the standard lately but I can use another type if needed.
I will be using HP Layer2 switches. Most likely I will be using model HP 2520-24G-POE. I can use different models if needed but would like to keep my cost around $1,500/switch.
I've always seen SFP links on my switches and know there for connecting gig fiber or copper but I have no clue how to accomplish this. Is there just a cable I need to purchase?
So something like this:
(MDF Switch) SFP port ---> fiber patch cord ---> wall mount termination box to adapter panel ---> preterm fiber ---> wall mount termination box to adapter panel ---> fiber patch cord ---> (IDF Switch) SFP port.
What do I need and how do I connect my fiber to the switch. Would I want to use a certain connector for the fiber such as SC or LC?
In the past I've used media converters but if possible I would like to get rid of this point of failure.
