Re: fiber switch for gig

Speaking of running gig long distances, does anyone on the list have suggestions on a >8 port L2 switch with fiber ports based on personal experience? Lots of 48 port gig switches have 2-4 fiber uplink ports, but this means daisy-chains instead of hub/spoke. Looking for a central switch for a star topography to home fiber runs that is cost effective and works.
Nortel 5530 has 24x copper, 12x SFP and 2x10GE (XFP): http://www.nortel.com/ers5530
We don't have 5530's but we have good experience with 5510 as L2 device. In your case you may be looking for a larger number of SFP GE ports though.
