4200G network scalability and connectivity



we had a growing network, and now is just connected by a 4200G 48 ports switch and then distributes to the rest of the building by UTP cable and connected to Ovislink switches.


I want to substitute UTP by fiber connections and Ovislink switches by better ones.


I am considering to use 10 gigabit fiber connections .In our existing 4200G I am not sure about how many ports can I use with 10 gigabit fiber connections, I read it has 4 SFP ports and 2 10-gigabit slots.


Can I connect 4 switches to our existing switch by 10 gigabit fiber connections? Which kind of connection do you recommend? Which switches do you recommend to connect by fiber?


Thank you very much.


Kind Regards.
