10-gigs ports

Last Modified: 2012-07-15
I am new to the 10-gigs port business so I am just wondering if you can educate me on it. I currently use 1-gig port with fiber and Ethernet cables. Now if I move to a 10-gigs ports, can I still use the 5e ethernet cable? or do I have to go with single mode fiber. I am looking at either to get a Cisco 4900M or 4500X. Thanks
