Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series Switch:

The Cisco® Catalyst® 4500 Series Switches enable Borderless Networks, providing high performance, mobile, and secure user experiences through Layer 2-4 switching investments. They enable security, mobility, application performance, video, and energy savings over an infrastructure that supports resiliency, virtualization, and automation. Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switches provide borderless performance, scalability, and services with reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) and superior investment protection.

The Cisco Catalyst 4500 has a centralized forwarding architecture that enables collaboration, virtualization, and operational manageability through simplified operations. With forward and backward compatibility spanning multiple generations, the new Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series provides exceptional investment protection and deployment flexibility to meet the evolving needs of organizations of all sizes. The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series platform has 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) uplinks and supports Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) and Universal PoE (UPOE), enabling customers to future proof their network.

E-Series chassis come in four different form factors: 3-slot (4503-E), 6-slot (4506-E), 7-slot (4507R+E), and 10-slot (4510R+E). 4503-E, 4506-E, 4507R+E, and 4510R+E chassis are extremely flexible and support either 24 or 48 Gbps per line-card slot. Integrated resiliency in the Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series includes 1 + 1 supervisor engine redundancy (10-slot and 7-slot chassis only), redundant fans, software-based fault tolerance, and 1 + 1 power supply redundancy. Integrated resiliency in both hardware and software minimizes network downtime, helping to ensure workforce productivity, profitability, and customer success.

Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series

The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series extends control to the network edge with intelligent network services, including sophisticated quality of service (QoS), predictable performance, advanced security, comprehensive management, and integrated resiliency. Scalability of these intelligent network services is made possible with dedicated, specialized resources known as ternary content-addressable memory (TCAM). Ample TCAM resources (up to 384,000 entries) enable "high feature capacity", which provides wire-speed routing and switching performance independent of provisioning of services such as QoS and security.

The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series offers four chassis options and four supervisor engine options. It provides a common architecture that can scale up to 388 ports. The Cisco Catalyst redundant R+E chassis offer high availability by supporting 1 + 1 redundant supervisor engines with subsecond failover time and full-image In-Service Software Upgrades (ISSUs). Nonstop forwarding with stateful switchover (NSF/SSO) and ISSU help ensure continuous packet forwarding during supervisor engine switchover to help ensure high availability for collaboration applications and voice over IP (VoIP). Using the same line cards as the widely deployed Cisco Catalyst 4000 Series Switches and classic Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switches, the Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series furthers Cisco's commitment to affordable enterprise and branch-office scalability.

Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series and Classic Line Cards

The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series offers two classes of line cards: classic and E-Series. Classic line cards provide 6 gigabits of switching capacity per slot. E-Series line cards provide increased switching capacity per slot. This increase in per-slot switching capacity with the E-Series line cards requires the Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series chassis and the Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series Supervisor. Two types of E-Series line cards are available based on the per-slot switching capacity. E-Series line cards numbered 47xx operate at 48 gigabits per slot, while E-Series line cards numbered 46xx operate at 24 gigabits per slot. Classic line cards may be deployed in both classic and E-Series chassis with either classic Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series supervisor engines or with the Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series Supervisor Engine. With the E-Series supervisor engine, the per-slot switching capacity for classic line cards remains at 6 gigabits per slot. However, because of the centralized switching architecture of the Cisco Catalyst 4500, the classic line cards will adopt all of the new E-Series supervisor engine features such as eight queues per port, dynamic QoS, and hardware-based IPv6 routing. For more feature details, refer to the E-Series supervisor engine data sheet. Classic line cards and E-Series line cards may be mixed and matched within a Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series chassis with no performance degradation: classic line cards will operate at 6 gigabits per slot, and E-Series line cards operate at either 48 gigabits per slot or 24 gigabits per slot based on whether they belong to the 47xx or 46xx family of line cards. Table summarizes the chassis and supervisor support for both classic and E-Series line cards.

Features and Benefits

Functional Transparency
Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switches offer an extensive line of modules that support numerous speeds and physical media combinations. These line cards are functionally transparent; all the packet processing, queuing, buffering, and QoS occur in the supervisor engine. To that end, both classic and E-Series line cards acquire the features and capabilities of the installed supervisor engine. For example, a classic line card previously deployed with a classic supervisor engine using four queues per port will automatically have capability for eight queues per port if redeployed with a Supervisor Engine 8-E/7-E/6-E. This architecture enables customers to easily upgrade all Ethernet line cards on their Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series systems to higher layer switching functions by adding a new supervisor engine. The simple design of the line cards results in a very high mean time between failures (MTBF), helping ensure high availability for a single connection to an end user.

Modular Versatility
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series is a centralized architecture that is designed to provide dedicated wire-speed bandwidth to each line-card slot within the chassis. Each line card has a dedicated bandwidth to the supervisor engine for packet processing. All network data that flows into the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series through the various line cards goes through the supervisor engine for processing, even in single-slot port-to-port communications. All line cards have some per-slot bandwidth that allows network administrators to design a system that offers full dedicated bandwidth-to-server and switch-to-switch applications and still provides high performance over subscribed gigabit to the desktop.

A modular centralized design allows customers to use their investment in high-performance line cards across the entire line of Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series chassis and supervisor engines. For example, line cards that shipped with the original Cisco Catalyst 4003 Switch in 1999 will work in the Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series chassis. Because of the centralized architecture of the Cisco Catalyst 4500, all line cards deployed in a chassis benefit from the enhanced features that the supervisor engine provides, including QoS, Layer 2/3/4 routing, and hardware-based IPv6.

Following are descriptions of line cards that are available for Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switches.

Fan Trays
Fan Trays Each Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series uses a single fan tray for cooling. All fan trays are composed of independent fans. If one fan fails, the system will continue to operate without a significant degradation in cooling. The system will detect and notify the user (through LED, CLI, and Simple Network Management Protocol [SNMP]) that a fan has failed and the tray needs to be replaced.
