3Com 3900 Backplane

3Com 3900 Backplane

I have multiple 3Com 3900's that i want to cascade via a backplane.  Is anyone aware of the parts needed to accomplish this, if so, please respond back with them.  I've seen the matrix cables but they seem to fit the 3300's, not the 3900's.


RE: 3Com 3900 Backplane

Sorry to disappoint you, but there are no special stacking kits for the 3900 (i know, i have 6 myself). According to 3Com documentation, the only way to let them form a stack is by using their internal 1000SX or optional 1000SX/LX modules. To have a bigger bandwidth, you should then trunk 1000Base ports together.
