Product Migration Options

The recommended replacement for the Cisco Catalyst 4000 Series 650-Watt DC Power Supply is the 1400-Watt DC power supply for the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series chassis. The Cisco Catalyst 4500 1400-Watt DC Power Supply supports 1+1 power supply redundancy and inline power pass-through with an integrated power entry module. A chassis upgrade is required because the 1400-Watt DC power supply cannot be deployed in a Cisco Catalyst 4003 or 4006 chassis.

Table 3 provides information for migrating from the Cisco Catalyst 4000 650-Watt DC Power Supply to the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series 1400-Watt DC Power Supply.
