Two 5308XL's

Two 5308XL's

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone knows what the most effective way is to connect two 5308XL core switches together are?

At the moment we are just using a standard patch cable from one gbit port to another gbit port on the other switch.

Would I see much difference in connecting them using fiber modules? What sort of throughput would i expect compared to using gbit -> gbit?

Many thanks.

Fiber or copper makes no difference speed wise. If you want to increase the bandwidth you can configure port trunk groups which will aggregate 2 to 8 ports between the switches.
