Introducing Cisco Catalyst 4507R+E and 4510R+E Chassis

Cisco introduces two new chassis for the Cisco® Catalyst® 4500 Series Switches: the Catalyst 4507R+E and Catalyst 4510R+E (Figure 1). The new chassis deliver 48 Gigabits per slot capacity for all line card slots, allowing the system to scale to 848 Gbps switching capacity. The new chassis are compatible with all current Catalyst 4500 Series supervisor engines (Supervisor Engines 6-E, 6L-E*, and V-10GE) and line cards, protecting investments and offering a system that is ready for next-generation services and hardware. Cisco IOS® Software Release 12.2(54)SG is supported on the new chassis.

*Supervisor Engine 6L-E does not support the Catalyst 4510R+E or 4510R-E chassis.
