Core Switch capacity issue
We currently use a HP Procurve 4108gl for our core switch. I only have 1 available gig port vacant on the switch, but I would like to provide at least another 6 dedicated Gig links. Is it possible to use the 1 vacant port as an uplink to another device that will provide a whole gig link or will this method only provide a fraction of the gig speed.
My initial thoughts were to uplink from the vacant gig port on the 4108gl to another HP gig switch.
I would appreciate any recommendations as we cannot afford to change our core switch this year.
