Cisco is announcing the following three modules in the widely deployed Cisco® Catalyst® 4500E platform:

• Industry first Universal Power over Ethernet (UPOE) line card, which extends the IEEE 802.3 PoE+ standard to deliver up to 60W per port over standard cabling infrastructure

• The innovative UPOE Power Splitter supplies power to any DC (Direct Current) device that is within 12V., e.g., the PC monitor

• Cisco's fastest data line card, at 48Gbps per slot line rate, which can handle jumbo frames

These two line cards also support the IEEE 802.3 Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standard and are a great value addition to the existing portfolio leading the modular wiring closet space against the competition.

Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series 10/100/1000 UPOE Line Card

The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series Universal PoE line card (Figure 1) is a breakthrough in technology, offering the following services to customers on the world's most widely deployed modular platform, the Cisco Catalyst 4500E:

60W per port to enable a variety of end devices such as Samsung VDI client, BT IP turret systems in trading floors, Cisco Catalyst compact switches in retail/hospitality environments, personal Cisco TelePresence® systems, and physical access control devices

EEE providing energy and cost savings to the customer

Line-rate throughput at 48Gbps per slot bandwidth

Table stakes PoE capabilities such as powering up 802.11n access points and interactive IP phones compliant with IEEE 802.3 PoE/PoE+ standard

Primary benefits of this line card are:

High availability for power and guaranteed uninterrupted services, a requirement for critical applications (e911)

Lowering OpEx by providing network resiliency at lower cost by consolidating backup power into the wiring closet

Faster deployment of new campus access networking infrastructures by eliminating the need for a power outlet for every endpoint

• Cisco UPoE, in combination with Cisco EnergyWise, to help meet corporate sustainability mandates while lowering energy costs

Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series Power Splitter

The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series Power Splitter provides an UPOE solution for the device that is not PoE compatible. The standalone Power Splitter takes an UPOE input and split it into one Ethernet PoE/PoEP output and one DC power line output. With this power splitter, Catalyst 4500E Series Switches can power any device that is within 12V DC range. The plug and play UPOE solution provides a wide range of power services and greatly reduce the complexity of cable and power management.
The Power Splitter takes a UPOE input from the WS-X4748-UPOE+E line card port and provides a PoE/PoEP RJ45 output port plus a 12V DC output port. A 60W input is split between the PoE/PoEP and DC power output lines.
