Mixing Switch Brand and Fibre Module Brands?
I am thinking of replacing some old switches. Now while the switches are of reasonable cost the fibre modules are almost the same again. Now i don't pretend to be an expert in "Core Comms and Switching" and my "Brain" says keeping the brands the same is probably senssible anyway.
But for example, would it be possible to use say a Netgear 1GBit Fibre module in a HP Procurve Switch? Obviously i can check standards.
If i can "without risking stability" get away with not having to purchase modules that would be great. But, if i have to buy them its not the end of the world. Your advise would be greatly appreciated if you have tried this :).
