Yes it is! for a few 1 gig this a good solution. When you need a lot of 1 Gig putting the 4500 in VC with a 4200 (F) is another solution.

If this worked for you please flag my post as an "Accepted Solution" so others can benefit. A kudo would be cool if you think I earned it.

The EX4500 uplink module can take both 1G and 10G - including a mix of the two. An EX4500 is cheaper per port than an EX4200-24F, even if you're using them all for 1G, if you need any more than 28 ports (24+4). :w

Can the EX4500 also take 1Gb ethernet SFPs?

keep in mind that the EX4500 does NOT support 10/100; only 1G/10G

 

will

Yes it will.

 

I had my EX4500s stated for testing with 1Gb SFPs, specifically EX-SFP-1GE-T.

 

I had two of them joined into an LACP bundle working with a ex4200.
