That aside, the switch [and its gbics] and then lan card you buy will determine the interfaces. It is suggested you do multimode vs singlemode fiber given the short distance.
What switch do you have? Know that you can't use a fiber uplink port on a switch for attaching servers or pcs.
Thanks for your reply mate.
I am really interested to setup this network on Fibre optic,
As you said 100 Meter does not require Fibre but I want to be a copper tradition breaker! Also Fibre is more secure and usable for the future.
So I will use Multi-mode :-)
For network card I will use "Allied Telesis Gigabit Fibre Network Adapter, 1 x 1000Base-SX LC, PCIe (x1)" which supports 1000Base-SX multi-mode fibre, LC connector.
For switch I am going to use either : Cisco SG300-10SFP 10-port Gigabit Managed SFP Switch or HPE OfficeConnect 1920 Switch Series ??
I did not know that UPLINk port will not support connections to the server or PC's . Thanks for letting me know.
Any Idea on Fibre switch? Managed?
