We are planning on deploying a 2960 switch and will need to uplink it to a 4510 switch. There are 2 TenGig Ports available and we are thinking of uplinking one of them to the 1Gb SFP port on the 2960. Would this work? This is the model of the 2960: WS-C2960-48TC-L. It comes with the 2-Gig SFPs. We have the TenGig Converter for the 4510.
You can connect the 4500 to a 2960 using a TwinGig converted. This means that the link will be on a 1 Gbps. The 2960 will only talk 1 Gbps so your 4500 should also talk in the same speed or the link won't work. The only way to get this done in the 4500 is to use a TwinGig coverter. The TwinGig converter is an insert that will convert a single 10 Gbps port into two 1 Gbps ports.
