Interconnection between CAT4003 and 2970

Looking for best practice to connect 4003 WS-4232-L3 module to a 2970
Gigabit switch.

Both GBIC slots are open on the WS-4232-L3, and I haven't purchased
the 2970 yet.

Is there a GBIC module that has a built-in copper transciever
(converter) so I can use twisted pair OR
Do I need to buy the 2970 TS series with the 4 SFP connections so I
can interconnect 1000fX?

I don't know what flavors of GBIC modules are available.

(Supervisor 1 Engine on 4003 if that is pertinent)

Thanks in advance!

Joe Q

Not listed as supporting the 4003 though.

If you wanted to experiment, then you might also want to
experiment with

However, neither of these devices is inexpensive!!! You might find
it less expensive to go the 1000-fx route (and better supported.)
There are various third-party SX GBICs known to work fairly well with
most Cisco equipment.
