Not sure if this is relevant to ask here ... but I cannot find any information on the net about it.
But here goes:
Today I have a fiber that comes into building B from A(I have no control here. Lets just say it's our ISP). This goes to a switch Cisco 2960G with a CWDM SFP Fiber module. Then from a Ethernet port to a Firewall.
This all works ... no problem.
In the near future another building will be connected with a Single Mode Fiber cable to building B. Lets call this C. ( We have no equipment in building C )
Since SFP CWDM Fiber modules is expensive(Compared to NON-CWDM ... in denmark, it's a factor 12) ... what would the best option be? ( I can see there is non-original CWVM, but these prices here is only compared to original )
Is "Ethernet to Fiber media converters" reliable? I don't see many of them and most of them are from rather unknown vendors?
I'm looking for an affordable solution ... so any vendor/products is most welcome.
Or is an additional switch to convert the RJ45/Ethernet from the switch in building B something that is beign used?
