Cisco is committed to reducing inefficiency and waste through intelligent process optimization. The new Cisco Catalyst® 4900 Series Green Bundle uses a high-density, cost-effective packaging option for the Cisco Catalyst 4948 and 4948 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switches.
The new Cisco Catalyst® 4900 Series Green Bundle consists of 10 fully configurable Cisco Catalyst 4900 Series Switches shipped in a single multipack shipping box. The Cisco® switches in the bundle are fully configurable when being ordered, but all switches in the 10-pack must have the exact same configuration.
The bundle includes:
• Ten configured and tested Cisco Catalyst 4948 or 4948 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switches
• One accessory kit
• One power cord for each AC power supply
• Ten rack-mount kits
The bundle is designed for single-site deployments.
• Environmentally friendly ("green")
• Volume service pricing (50 percent discount)
• Efficient business process
• Reduced warehouse floor space
• Reduced packaging material (Figure 1)
• Elimination of unnecessary accessory kits
• Reduced handling in shipping and receiving

Configure the bundle part number just like a single switch. Select the type and number of power supplies. Then choose one AC power cord for each AC power supply selected. The default Cisco IOS® Software image is LAN Base. Deployments that require IP Base or Enterprise Services software images must select the Cisco IOS Software upgrade part number (WS-C4900-SW-LIC) before completing the configuration.
When the configuration is complete, the system will expand the configuration into 10 individual switches, all with the same components.
