Buying a new Gigabit Switch

Buying a new Gigabit Switch

Buying a new Gigabit Switch

(OP)
Hi,

I need to buy a new CISCO switch with at least 2x1000Mbps ports.From the cisco.com site I've read about some models and I'm little bit confusing:

1.Catalyst 500-24TT have 24x10/100 and 2x10/100/1000 for uplink or server connectivity. Can I use for uplink any port?

2. catalyst 500-24PC have 20x10/100, 4x10/100 PoE for desktop, wireless access point, IP telephony, ot closed TV camera connectivity and 2x10/100 or Small Form-Factor Pluggable(SFP) ports for flexible uplink or server connectivity.

The PoE have some special? Are used even for desktop.
Can someone tell me what is SFP ?

Thanks

According to this your choice is switch 1. You can uplink from any port but you only get gigabit on the two ports supplying it. The second switch does not say it has any gig ports so that's out.

SFP stands for Small Form Factor Pluggable..... They are little modules that plug into switches and offer various connectivity options... You don't need to worry about these for your switch...
