Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switches deliver secure, flexible, non-stop communications with exceptional investment protection. Catalyst 4500 switches are optimized for collaboration applications in the wiring closet with high availability and are PoEP-ready (up to 30W). PoEP-ready line cards and 10G uplinks are a standard on the Catalyst 4500 E-Series platform allowing customers to future proof their network and protect the investment.

Overview

Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switches provide scalable nonblocking Layer 2-4 switching with secure, flexible, nonstop communications, enabling business resilience for enterprises, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), and Metro Ethernet customers deploying business-critical applications. The Cisco Catalyst 4500 delivers predictable and scalable high performance, with advanced dynamic quality-of-service (QoS) capabilities and configuration flexibility for enterprise wiring closets and SMB access/core. Integrated resiliency features in both hardware and software maximize network availability, helping to ensure workforce productivity, profitability, and customer success. The Cisco Catalyst 4500's centralized, innovative, and flexible system design helps ensure smooth migration to wire-speed IPv6 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The flexibility, scalability, and forward and backward compatibility between generations of the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series extend deployment life, providing exceptional investment protection and reducing the total cost of ownership.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series includes four chassis options: Cisco Catalyst 4510R-E (10 slots), Cisco Catalyst 4507R-E (7 slots), Cisco Catalyst 4506-E (6 slots), and Cisco Catalyst 4503-E (3 slots). The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series provides a common architecture, taking advantage of existing Cisco Catalyst 4000 Series line cards scaling up to 388 Ethernet ports. Offering compatibility with existing Cisco Catalyst 4000 and 4500 Series line cards, the Cisco Catalyst 4500 E Series extends its window of deployment in converged networks.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series includes E-series supervisor engine and line cards and "classic" supervisor engines and line cards. The E-Series supervisor engines and line cards provide many enhancements, including 24 gigabits of switching capacity per line-card slot and aggregate forwarding performance of 250 million pps. Classic supervisors and line cards deliver 6 gigabits of switching capacity per line-card slot and forwarding performance up to 102 million pps.

Convergence

In today's highly competitive business environment, a converged network plays a critical role in helping an organization gain a competitive advantage through increased productivity, organizational flexibility, and reduced operational costs. Integration of data, voice, and video on a single IP-based network, such as unified communications, requires a switching infrastructure that can distinguish each traffic type and manage it according to its unique requirements. The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series provides a switching infrastructure that, when combined with Cisco IOS Software, can deliver advanced nonstop services and control.

Secure and Nonstop Services

The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series provides the network infrastructure for all applications that will be integrated to solve business problems. Extending intelligent network services with integrated resiliency leads to control of all traffic types with minimal planned or unplanned downtime. The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series delivers this control with the following:

Integrated resiliency: Network downtime is minimized with redundant supervisor engine (subsecond failover) capability (Cisco Catalyst 4507R-E and 4510R-E switches), advanced fault tolerance software, full image In-Service Software Upgrades (ISSU), redundant fans, and 1+1 power-supply redundancy across the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series. Integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) in all Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series chassis simplifies network design and limits the number of points of failure for unified communications.

Advanced security: Support for Cisco patented Layer 2 security features prevents security breaches from rogue servers as well as "man in the middle" attacks where passwords and data can be intercepted. Layer 2-4 filtering and policing are also supported to mitigate the traffic initiated from malicious network attackers.

Sophisticated QoS: Integrated QoS and traffic-management capabilities based on Layer 2-4 classify and prioritize mission-critical and time-sensitive traffic, using Modular QoS CLI (MQC) and up to 64,000 QoS policy entries. The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series can shape and rate-limit bandwidth-intensive traffic with mechanisms such as input and output policers based on host, network, and application information.

Comprehensive management: The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series offers Web-based management for the configuration and control of all ports, allowing central management of critical network characteristics such as availability and responsiveness.

We prefer to ship UPS or FedEx, we also can ship DHL or US Postal Service. We can usually have it to your location overnight if needed. Additional Fee(s) may apply for special shipping. All equipment will ship from our warehouse located at our office in Springfield, MO. We can also ship overseas if needed and we only charge exact shipping costs. For most customers outside the USA and Canada, wire transfer is the only form of payment we will accept. Overseas customers can either arrange to have the equipment picked up in the USA or we will ship to your location by FedEx. We can also ship to a freight forwarder here in the USA. The purchaser will be required to pay for taxes and duties through customs in your home country.
