And be aware of the speed / distance limitations
For OM1, typical transmission speed and distance limits are 100 Mbit/s for distances up to 2 km (100BASE-FX<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/100BASE-FX>), 1 Gbit/s to 220-550 m (1000BASE-SX<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1000BASE-SX>), and 10 Gbit/s to 300 m (10GBASE-SR<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/10_Gigabit_Ethernet#10GBASE-SR>)
And, if each hop that you refer to is a patching point, you will introduce loss along the way.

Sounds like you're using single mode transceivers with multimode fibre there. Since SM optics rely on total internal reflection and multimode is basically bendy plastic, that will probably never work. You need some multimode SX SFPs.

We run 550m of OM1 fibre from our Cisco core to a remote site over 6 hops included rack to rack and we can not
seem to get any connectivity. Using both Cisco GLC-LH-SM transceivers at both the Core & access Switch.
Does anyone know if there are hops limitations for long haul fibres.
Any advise is much appreciated.
