Overview

The new Cisco ® Catalyst ® 4500E Supervisor Engine 8-E (Figure 1) extends one policy, one management, one network to the world's most widely deployed modular access switch. This brings convergence of wired and wireless networks on a single platform while providing unprecedented investment protection. It ushers in a new converged architecture that is simple, resilient, and secure.

Converged Wired and Wireless Access

The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Switch with Supervisor Engine 8-E is an extremely scalable and feature-rich modular access platform built to meet current and future network demand, including gigabit desktop and 802.11ac wireless:

• Built-in wireless controller with single software image for wired and wireless infrastructure

• Delivery of up to 928 Gbps system bandwidth and nonblocking 48 Gbps per slot

• Support for up to 20 G wireless throughput, 50 access points, and 2000 wireless clients on a single system and 250 access points and 4000 clients for multiswitch controllerless deployment

• Eight nonblocking 10 Gigabit Ethernet (Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus [SFP+]) future-proofed uplinks with field-programmable gate array (FPGA) devices to support next-generation protocols

• Ability of 4500E chassis with Supervisor Engine 8-E to scale up to 384 Gigabit copper ports, 200 Gigabit fiber ports, or 104 10 Gigabit ports in non-VSS mode

Infrastructure Services

• Maximum resiliency with redundant components, Nonstop Forwarding/Stateful Switchover (NSF/SSO), and Cisco In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) support

• Network virtualization through Multi-Virtual Route Forwarding (VRF) and Easy Virtual Networking (EVN) technology for Layer 3 segmentation

• Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+; 30 W) and Cisco Universal PoE (UPOE; 60 W) capabilities on all line-card slots

Investment Protection and Reduced Total Cost of Ownership

• Full backward compatibility with 6-, 24-, and 48-Gbps line cards with no performance degradation

• Compatibility with classic Cisco Catalyst 4500 line cards and power supplies, providing full investment protection

Cisco Services

• Optimized application performance through deep visibility with flexible NetFlow (FNF), supporting rich Layer 2, 3, and 4 information (MAC, VLAN, and TCP flags) and synthetic traffic with IP service-level agreements

• Medianet capabilities for video quality of service (QoS), monitoring, and security
