what type of fiber do I need?
Posted on 2014-12-08
I have two switches that I want to connect using a fiber cable, they are two floors apart. I don't know what kind of cabling I need nor what I need at the switch in terms of connectors (GBICs)
Currently the switch I have is very old Cisco. The switch has a gbic that says 1000 Base-SX, 850nm Laser
The other switch's says 1000Base - LX, 1300nm laser.
I may be upgrading the switch (on both ends) and I want to allow for room for growth.
Is there a standard fiber cable I should be running? Can I then put the needed connectors?
