New Feature: Cisco IOS LAN Base Option

Previously, the Cisco Catalyst ® 4948 Switch supported two software images: IP Base for basic Layer 3 deployments and Enterprise Services for Layer 3 deployments. Starting with Cisco IOS ® Software Release 12.2(52)SG, a LAN Base option has been added, providing a three-tiered software model. The LAN Base option provides a limited feature set designed for Cisco ® customers who need data center-class hardware but do not need the enhanced security, routing, and management features offered in the IP Base image.

Ordering Information

The Cisco Catalyst 4948 Switch and 4948 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch each have three part numbers for ease of ordering. WS-C4948 and WS-C4948-10GE now have LAN Base as the default image instead of IP Base. Both switches can be fully upgraded to IP Base or Enterprise Services with the purchase of software upgrade licenses. The -S and -E SKUs will still include IP Base and Enterprise Services, respectively.

• Configurable part number: WS-C4948 and WS-C4948-10GE: Customer-selectable software, power supply, and power cords
