Model: TL-SG2210P
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I am putting together an Omada system. I have a 16/18 Port TP Link TL-SG2218 switch, and need another switch with Poe on it.  I am going to get the TL-SG2210P. I don't want to connect and give up 2 slots by using the 2 standard copper ports.  I want to connect the 2 together using the SFP slots.  Can anyone tell me what the simplest cable connection would be?  Thanks.

TL-SG2218 and TL-SG2210P are both 1G SFP ports, you need to connect them with two 1G SFP Modules and the Fiber, please refer to the following diagram for the specific connection method:


As for the specific specifications of the fiber, you need to refer to the specification table of the SFP module you bought to choose the one that matches.

@Hank21 I have not ever worked with fiber before.  What module would a person get for my devices?  Any recommendations?

@ingeborgdot 

There is a datasheet of the SFP module, you pick the fiber up to the specs of the module.
