Optimized for small offices, the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine II-Plus-TS provides a highly flexible and scalable deployment alternative to medium-sized businesses for end-user and server connectivity.
Integrated Reliability and Serviceability
The Cisco Catalyst 4503 minimizes network downtime with 1+1 redundant hot-swappable power supplies, a hot-swappable fan tray with redundant fans, and hot-swappable line cards. The centralized switching architecture of the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switches helps ensure consistent backplane performance, even if a line card should fail.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine II-Plus-TS includes a dedicated 10/100 copper RJ-45 management port located on the supervisor engine faceplate for disaster recovery. If all the flash storage devices local to the switch are corrupted or completely full, the supervisor engine can download an image from a Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server within seconds, minimizing network disruptions.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine II-Plus-TS extends enterprise-class switching capacity and predictable performance to the medium-sized business. A robust 64-Gbps backplane delivers 48 mpps of forwarding throughput in hardware to support high-density gigabit to the desktop and server connections. Extensive ternary content addressable memory (TCAM) resources provide extensive capacity for concurrent wire-rate intelligent services and help enable new services quickly.
Comprehensive Management for Ease of Use
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine II-Plus-TS can be managed with Cisco Network Assistant, embedded CiscoView, or the command-line interface (CLI). Cisco Network Assistant is a Web-based application that provides automated routines that perform easy setup and configuration of one or more switches. Data, voice, video, and security automated routines allow quick configuration of advanced enterprise features.
