Fiber Uplink Question

I did receive the 1st GS748T and it is a V3 - I just cleaned it up and I am going to give her a factory reset and check the firmware tonight.  Much heavier than I expected. I definitely got my money worth. Then second one is still in transit but I was able to verify with the seller that it is a V3 also.

 

I was able to acquire some 12 strand fiber from an electrician friend.  I need to find out what ends are used .. I told him SFP he says that is not the type. Time to hit the manuals.

 

I would like to trunk 3 of the sfps and keep one open for expansion later.

 

I will post as new developments occur.

One other option would be get 2 HP V1910 switches you can then make a bundled trunkline using copper even instead of fiber with 2-4 of the ports to give you better bandwidth on the trunk.  better Cisc

When you get it, use the serial number to determine the version and update the firmware: http://support.netgear.com/product/GS748Tv1 Here is a guide to the software. section 4-10: http://www.downlo

You want LC connections and multi-mode fiber.

How long of a fiber run do you need?

It may be very expensive to terminate the fiber.

My electrician friend does it all the all the time at the east coast datacenter he works at. He has a bunch of LC's and a roll of fiber so I am covered there. Its about a 140 foot run.

 

If I get into a pinch I will PM you for supplies.

Check the fans when you fire them up.

Netgear went low bid on fans, I have some good choices for new ones.

schooondoggy:  I am still waiting on the second switch to arrive (typical ebay seller BS). The fans on the one I have are very loud (bearings or just low grade?)

 

ikon: it is very convenient from a local electrician but also very nice to have community members that can also help and guide.

have to measure when I get home - I need to crack her open to clean better also. When I do I can measure but they have to be 40mm and yes there are only two of them on the rt side.

Sorry guys for letting this thread dry up, real life getting in the way as always. This is where I am at ATT.  I opened both of the switches up and did a deep cleaning then a factory reset and a firmware update.  The fans are  3 in total.  3 are 40x10 1 is 40 x 20.  

 

Since the one switch will be located in the finished basement closet ( i call it my command center) it needs to be quiet as well as the top floor switch in my lab.  I could just buy 6 fans off of ebay but I want you opinion on real life experiences.

 

Thank You
