If the Right Switch for the installation is a stacked switch, then one of these switch models would have been chosen:
|Switch Model||Ports On||Max Devices||PoE Ports||Stacking Bandwidth||Max Stack Units|
When a stacked switch is used, the video bandwidth usage for Transmitters needs to be considered as the stacking cables that connect switches have a maximum bandwidth capability that is much lower than if a single switch is used.
To estimate Just Add Power Transmitter bandwidth usage:
|Generation||Average Bandwidth*||Recommended TX per Gb|
*Actual bandwidth will depend on source resolution, framerate, colorspace and content.
Connecting stacked switches together requires stacking cables.
Most stacking cables are compatible, regardless of the manufacturer.
All Cisco stacking cables that work with the Cisco SG500 are also compatible with the Cisco SG550X.
**Just Add Power has experienced fiber modules passing 5Gb bandwidth between SG500 switches on Cisco firmware 220.127.116.11 and later. However, Cisco's documentation has yet to support this claim.**
