Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine for Medium-Sized Enterprises and Service Providers

The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine II-Plus-10GE complements the Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine portfolio by delivering 10 Gigabit Ethernet capability in an enhanced Layer 2 supervisor engine. The Supervisor Engine II-Plus-10GE is equipped with both gigabit (Small Form-Factor Pluggable [SFP]) ports and line-rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet (X2) ports, allowing for an easy and cost-efficient migration to 10 Gigabit Ethernet.

Overview

The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine II-Plus-10GE is a 10 Gigabit Ethernet supervisor engine running Cisco IOS Software that meets the needs of value-conscious enterprise and service provider customers. This supervisor engine has been optimized for high-performance enterprise wiring closets and service provider access and aggregation needs. Medium-sized enterprises, education customers, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), and service providers can all benefit from the supervisor engine's resilience and intelligent control of converged data, voice, and video networks.
The Supervisor Engine II-Plus-10GE delivers nonblocking Layer 2-4 intelligent services to help enable power-resilient, enhanced Layer 2 switching solutions for converged networks. It allows customers to deploy networkwide intelligent services, such as advanced quality of service (QoS), comprehensive security, and management with optimal control and resiliency. Scalability of these intelligent network services is made possible with dedicated, specialized resources known as ternary content addressable memory (TCAM). Ample TCAM resources (32,000 entries) enable "high feature capacity," which provides wire-speed routing/switching performance with concurrent provisioning of services such as QoS and security. This helps ensure scalability for today's network requirements with ample room for future growth.
The Supervisor Engine II-Plus-10GE can be used with the Cisco Catalyst 4503, Catalyst 4506, and Catalyst 4507R chassis, and with classic Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series line cards. The Supervisor Engine II-Plus-10GE is also compatible with the Cisco Catalyst 4503-E, Catalyst 4506-E, and Catalyst 4507R-E chassis, helping to ensure an extended window of deployment of the modular Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series.

Redundancy for Business Resiliency

The Cisco Catalyst 4507R and Catalyst 4507R-E chassis have been designed with optional 1+1 redundant supervisor engine capability using dual Supervisor Engine II-Plus-10GE's for integrated resiliency. One of these supervisor engines is designated as the primary (active) and is responsible for normal system operation; the other (secondary) serves as a standby, monitoring the operation of the primary supervisor engine.
Stateful Switchover (SSO) offers continuous packet forwarding during supervisor engine switchover. Information is fully synchronized between supervisor engines to allow the standby supervisor engine to immediately take over in subsecond time if the primary fails. In Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) allows customers to upgrade or downgrade complete Cisco IOS Software images with minimal to no disruption to the network when using a redundant Catalyst 4500 Series system with dual supervisor engines. ISSU enables rapid, nondisruptive software upgrade for new line cards, new power supplies, new features, or bug fixes. ISSU offers continuous packet forwarding during the supervisor engine switchover running different Cisco IOS Software releases.
SSO and ISSU dramatically improve the network reliability and availability in a Layer 2 environment. SSO and ISSU are essential for business-critical applications such as voice over IP (VoIP), preventing VoIP calls from being dropped.
The redundancy scheme using the Supervisor Engine II-Plus-10GE in the Cisco Catalyst 4507R and Catalyst 4507R-E is identical to that used by other Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engines. When the primary supervisor engine fails, the secondary supervisor engine assumes control of the chassis. This algorithm prevents oscillation between primary and secondary supervisor engines. Alerts are generated to the network-monitoring software if either fails. A supervisor engine switchover can be forced by software, or by the user through the console or with the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

Predictable Performance and Scalability

The Supervisor Engine II-Plus-10GE delivers a 108-Gbps switching fabric with line-rate forwarding of 81 mpps in hardware for Layer 2-4 traffic. Switching performance is independent of the number of route entries or advanced security features enabled. The Supervisor Engine II-Plus-10GE is optimized for multimedia applications with its advanced multicast support and wire-speed switching in hardware. Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) and Source Specific Multicast (SSM) are supported, providing end users with additional scalability to support multimedia applications.
The Supervisor Engine II-Plus-10GE supports Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) Snooping in hardware, enhancing the performance of multimedia applications and reducing network traffic by allowing a switch to dynamically add and remove hosts from a multicast group.
