What SFP module would you use to connect a 3750 switch to a 3550 that is using a WS-G5486 Gigabit module?   Does anyone have experience with SX to LX adapters and if they are reliable?

You would need to use a GLC-LH-SMD transceiver for this, and a LC-SC single-mode patch cord (if they're being connected directly without an intermediate patch-panel).

They are very reliable and are used for long links, well over the length that SX modules can go.

Looks like GLC-LH-SM is the SFP for your application.

@don - GLC-LH-SM is EoS now - the replacement is the GLC-LH-SMD variant.  It's essentially the same thing but with DOM capability.
