Sorry for the noise, but this is sorta operational (for me anyway ;-))
We are physically in the process of configuring the connectivity for NANOG 37. "We" are from "out of town"
It has not been easy (when has it ever been?).
Accept the following: We have to transit some existing infrastructure that is restricted to 100Mb FE over Copper with RJ45 connectors.
On one side, we have to connect the FE connection to a Gbic equipped router over existing single mode, with either an SC or FC connector (the patch panel accepts either of these).
On the other side of the link we have to connect the FE connection to a Gbic equipped router over existing multimode mode, with an ST connector (the patch panel accepts only this)
Can anyone point me to a source in the 55 S Market area that might have the appropriate intelligent media conversion devices actually in stock, at a reasonable price, and not "1-2 days" out? Bearing in mind that besides converting media, I have to convert speed for the Gbics? And I am trying to avoid the cost of getting two switches, and installing appropriate Gbics in them :-/
