1000BaseSX and Single Mode Fibre

Hi all,

I'm hoping someone can advise, as I am unsure.

I have a short run of single mode fibre (~90 meters) between a couple of buildings and have some switches that have 1000BaseSX SFP adapters in them.

Am I correct in believing that with 1000BaseSX it has to be multimode fiber? What are the chances of this working with the single mode fiber as it is quite a short run?

Thanks for any help!

Slim to none. 10 meters might make it.

LX gbics are pretty cheap - they are under $100 if you look hard enough. Go buy a pair off e-bay and slap them in your device.
