Re: Fiber tranceiver on FortiSwitch 448D
Thank you for your help. A little background... this is our first time dealing with fiber, and I knew little to nothing about it. We are a small company, so we had no reason to use it for anything prior to this. However, we set up a new connection through our carrier between two locations, and the handoff to our equipment at the new location was fiber. We expected it to be ethernet on both ends like a similar connection we have, but I suspect they didn't already have switching equipment at that location to do that, so they just brought the fiber to our rack. We had to learn quickly and put something together quickly. The FN tranceiver was on back order at the time, which is why we got the converter as a temporary solution.
It sounds like we have the wrong FN tranceiver. It was the one recommended by our reseller, and we told them it was a 1 Gbps line, so we'll have to go back to them on that. I saw that it was listed as a 10Gbps tranceiver, but as this was recommended to us; and being new to fiber and FN hardware, I thought maybe the transmit speed was configurable on it in some way. Doesn't look like it though. Thanks again for your help!
