We currently have two HP Procurve 2312s connected using two 100-FX-SC transceivers. I am looking to upgrade to new managed Cisco Catalyst switches that use 1000Base-SX transceivers, will the same cabling I have now work or what will I need to upgrade to make it work?
it is 62.5/125 other information on the tag was a tripplite part#N304-003 and SC-ST 0.9M
That will support Gigabit Ethernet over that distance. However you need to check that the physical interface on the new switch transceiver matches your current transceiver (which is SC) and I suspect they won't match.
So there's a few things.
- Distance, by your comment it's 400ft (~130M), this should be ok with any SX transceiver
- Patch cables, also by your comments I think you'll need to purchase new ones, probably LC-ST. Here's an example
- Installation cable, the cable used on the main run, if it's 50/125 (OM2) no problem, if it's 62.5/125 (OM1) then it might work, but isn't strictly to spec
