Model: TL-SG3428  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version:

I have a TL-SG3428 and a TL-SG2210MP switch. What SFP modules could be used to interconnect them within a rack? Eg

 

  • What is a compatible 1Gbit SFP copper RJ-45?
  • What is a compatible 1Gbit SFP DAC (Direct Attach Cable)?

 

I guess I could interconnect with a couple of fibre SFP modules, but that seems like overkill within a rack.

@CraigMcQ Hi, I have been using Optcore.net SFP RJ45 modules for a couple of months now (TL-SM311T 1000Base-T SFP) in TL-SG2210MPv1.0 switches.

All I can say is they work out of the box and with no down sides. Inexpensive and Optcore are very helpful but delivery is a little slow as for me they come from the otherside of the world, you can pay extra for quicker delivery.

@Sherman111 I have got some Optcore TL-SM311T-compatible copper RJ45 SFP modules now. I can confirm, they are working well.

 

I'm using them in TL-SG2210MP, TL-SG2218 and TL-SG3428 switches.
