Hello team

 

I have one cisco switch SX550X-24F 24-Port 10G SFP+ Stackable Managed Switch and I tried to connected TP-Link Media converter MC200CM with the fiber ports in the switch, but only power is working in the media converter, other lights are not working, I tried to solve the issue by forcing the speed port of the switch to 1000mbps with full duplex and disabling autonegotation but no change and switch operational mode status still down, I tried to connect Planet media converter GT-802 in the cisco switch and it worked without any issues, the questions here, is there any configuration should be done with cisco switch so that make tplink media converter work on it? kindly share your experience with this post if you have any similar cases like this.

I have the same problem. I tried to connect a MC200L with a original TP-Link 850nm SFP-module to a sx550x-24f, also with a 850nm SFP-module. It didn´t work. The sx550x show me that there is a module present and configured to speed 1G but operational status is down. A green LED on the sx550 comes up short only in the moment i connect the MC200L.

I tried the same modules, same cable, same MC200L on cisco SG300 and SG350 and it works fine.

I just checked that GT-802's spec is 10/100/1000BASE-T to 1000BASE-SX Media Converter (SC, MM) -220/550m, 850mn.

This seems exactly what MC200CM is from its datasheet.  SC, MM, 850mn, should work with UPC 125μm multi-mode fiber.

 

This is the only TS FAQ from TP-Link, if still not working and not a compatible issue, you'd better contact TP-Link for a replacement.
