As one of my switches seems to have developed a fault I am looking at adding a fiber uplink to a new Zyxel switch in order to spread the load on two switches.

The present switch is a GS1920HP 48 port and I would like to ad an XGS1930 through a fiber connection.

Is there a published list of compatible SFP modules that work with both these please? As the distances are small, LC type multimode fibre should be enough.

    Hi @Brianza

    In terms of SFP transceivers compatible with Zyxel switches, you can find the detailed information in the datasheets of the respective models. Here are the lists of SFP transceivers on the datasheets of GS1920v2 series and the XGS1930 series switches:

    ZYXEL switch products are recommended to be used exclusively with ZYXEL brand modules to ensure optimal performance and reliability.
    Using modules from third-party sources can potentially lead to decreased network performance and reliability, such as packet loss and connectivity issues, which also cannot be guaranteed by ZYXEL. ZYXEL may not offer technical support for networking issues that are identified as being caused by IOP with third-party modules.
