Cisco Catalyst 4503-E Features

The Cisco® Catalyst® 4500 Series Switches enable Borderless Networks, providing high performance, mobile, and secure user experiences through Layer 2-4 switching investments. They enable security, mobility, application performance, video, and energy savings over an infrastructure that supports resiliency, virtualization, and automation. Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switches provide borderless performance, scalability, and services with reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) and superior investment protection.

The Cisco Catalyst 4500 has a centralized forwarding architecture that enables collaboration, virtualization, and operational manageability through simplified operations. With forward and backward compatibility spanning multiple generations, the new Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series provides exceptional investment protection and deployment flexibility to meet the evolving needs of organizations of all sizes. The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series platform has 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) uplinks and supports Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) and Universal PoE (UPOE), enabling customers to future proof their network.

The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series extends control to the network edge with intelligent network services, including sophisticated quality of service (QoS), predictable performance, advanced security, comprehensive management, and integrated resiliency. Scalability of these intelligent network services is made possible with dedicated, specialized resources known as ternary content-addressable memory (TCAM). Ample TCAM resources (up to 384,000 entries) enable “high feature capacity”, which provides wire-speed routing and switching performance independent of provisioning of services such as QoS and security.
