So you've got 2 x smoothwall utm's with gigabit copper ports on them and you have core switches which need a transceiver to present a gig copper port to the smoothwalls?
In that case sure no problem using a module to provide that.
Wether that particular module is compatible you'll have to double check.

I was after opionions from people who were using them in terms of reliability.

It was hp into an hp switch and never had a problem.

cool cheers, i'm probably going to go with the HP one I linked. Extreme don't vendor lock so supposedly take anything, I'll order one and we shall see.

Don't use media converters, the are not gr8.
We have used copper gbics for many years without any problems at all.

Do not buy cheap copies, go with genuine HP gbics.

We've always used Extreme, Netgear and HP Gbics on our Extreme Black Diamond and they've worked perfectly. I would probably steer clear of cheap ones though.
