Installing the Switch 2124
Example Network Topologies
Connecting to a Backbone Switch
The simpler desktop and segment networks shown in the previous two
examples can easily be combined and expanded. For example, you could use
an HP Procurve Switch 8000M to interconnect each of your smaller switched
workgroups to form a larger switched network. All the devices in this network
can communicate with each other. With a Gigabit-SX Module, for example,
installed in the Switch 8000M, the entire switched topology could be
connected to a campus backbone, as shown in the illustration above.

For the 100Base-FX connection between the Switch 2124 and the Switch 8000
to work properly, be sure that the 100Base-FX port on the Switch 8000 is
configured to 100 Mbps and full duplex.
