gigE vs. F/E?



I was planning on getting an alcatel 6450 switch and some VVX411 phones.   They said the phones wouldn't work because the switch was not gigE?


I'm not sure what they mean -



If someone could clarify I'd appreciate it.

Hello boe,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

The VVX 411 supports  IEEE802.3 so any Gigabit switch is fine. If you only connect a 100MBit we will works with 100FD
