Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine V-10GE
Key Features of Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine V-10GE
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine V-10GE continues the nonblocking, robust Layer 2-4 switching found in previous Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series supervisor engines with the addition of wire-speed 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplinks, 136-Gbps capacity and 102-mpps throughput, and additional features to further enhance resilient control of converged data, voice, and video networks with high availability to help enable business resiliency for enterprise and metropolitan (metro) Ethernet customers. Network control extends from the backbone to the edge with intelligent services such as granular quality of service (QoS), Internet security, and network management.
The Cisco Catalyst Supervisor Engine V-10GE includes dual wire-speed 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports (X2 optics) as well as 4 alternative wired Gigabit Ethernet ports (Small Form-Factor Pluggable [SFP] optics) on the faceplate to maximize the flexibility of deployment options. The combination of Gigabit Ethernet and 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports on the same supervisor engine allows for network future-proofing with an easy migration path from Gigabit Ethernet to 10 Gigabit Ethernet by simply adding 10-Gigabit Ethernet optical interfaces. The ability to choose between Gigabit Ethernet uplinks and 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplinks on a single supervisor engine further enhances the investment protection of the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series architecture.
Manufacturer Part Number:
Supervisor Engine V-10GE
The Supervisor Engine V-10GE is supported in the Catalyst 4503, 4506, 4507R, and 4510R switches. It is not supported in Catalyst 4003 or 4006 switches. On the Catalyst 4503, and 4506 switches, you can install the Supervisor Engine V-10GE only in slot 1. On the Catalyst 4507R or 4510R switch, you install the primary supervisor engine in slot 1, and you can install an optional redundant supervisor engine in slot 2. The supervisors in slots 1 and 2 of a redundant system must be of the same type. The supervisor engine is hot swappable, but packets are not forwarded when the last supervisor engine has been removed from the switch. When a supervisor engine is reinserted into the switch, the supervisor reboots.
