[vcf-midatlantic] SX GBIC fiber cable speed

I’m running primarily 10 Gbps infrastructure, using a 24 port Arista fiber
switch as my core. I also do have 2 8-port 40 Gbps switches, one ethernet
and one Infiniband. Hamfests have been good to me!

I will need to add another 10 Gbps switch, so that I can manage all the new
Cat8 runs, but for now, those will likely terminate in a 1 Gbps switch,
until I find another good deal.
