I have two Catalyst 3560G-24PS switches with Cisco 1000Base-SX SFPs. I have some very nice Amphenol single-mode duplex jumper cables (P/N942-625DD-10000), 50cm in length, which I would like to use to connect the two switches.
However, they are wired straight-through -- the transmit fiber on one end goes to the transmit position at the other end, so therefore no worky.
Is it possible to separate the little clip around the LC connectors which holds them together (like you can do with duplex SC connectors) so that I can reverse the fibers at one end of each of these patch cables to effectively make them crossover, so that I can use them as intended? If so, how?
If not, is the plastic clip removable entirely (with a Dremel, if need be!) to turn each duplex cable into two simplex cables?
Thanks in advance!
