Intelligent Switching for the Integrated Network
Modular Switches (continued)
Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series
Cisco Catalyst 4500-E Series modular switches enable a high performance, mobile, and secure user experience.
The Catalyst 4500-E Series is Cisco's lead access and collapsed access/aggregation platform for Borderless
Networks. Offering up to 848 Gbps in switching capacity and 250 Mpps in throughput, Catalyst 4500 E-series
switches are optimized for unified communication with high density POE and POE+, embedded security with Cisco
TrustSec and enable maximum uptime for voice, video and critical applications with services like Stateful Switchover,
non-stop Forwarding, and In-service software upgrades.
Cisco pre-standard and IEEE
802.3af PoE Support. 20w PoE
support for 802. 1 1n access points.
Up to 60 watts per port with
E-Series line cards. Extensive
QoS features with up to 8 user
configurable queues per port.
Redundant supervisor engines
with In Service Software Upgrade
(ISSU), non-stop Forwarding/
Stateful Switchover (NSF/SSO)
offering 50 ms failover; Application
visibility with WireShark, Campus
virtualization with EVN (Easy
Virtual Network); redundant
power supplies with power circuit
fan trays with redundant fans.
Minimize network operational
time with ISSU, EEM, AutoQoS,
Smartports RSPAN; TDR, OIR,
Flexible NetFlow for application
visibility, Cisco Prime, and LMS.
Integrated Network Admission
Control (NAC) and Comprehensive
security with Cisco TrustSec
and 802. 1 x, H/W-based Control
Plane Policing (CoPP); integrated
man-in-the-middle and DoS attack
mitigation; NetFlow; access control
lists for IPv4 and IPv6 at wire rate
3,6,7 and 10-slot chassis
supporting numerous connectivity
configurations with up to 48
Gbps per slot capacity, 10/100,
10/100/1000 (PoE or non-PoE),
GE SFP Fiber and 10 GE line cards.
Mix and match classic line cards
with high performance E-Series
line cards for maximum flexibility.
High Port Density:
Up to 384 Fast Ethernet or Gigabit
Ethernet Ports (PoE or non PoE)
and up to 100 10 Gigabit Ethernet
(10 GBE) ports.
Evolutionary centralized modular
Architecture, media flexibility,
and scalability of the Catalyst
4500 Series delivers maximum
investment protection with
backward and forward
compatibility across several
generations dating back to 1999.
