WS-C4506: Cisco Catalyst switch 4500 Chassis (6-Slot), Rack-mountable 10U, PoE, Power over Ethernet (PoE)
The 6-slot Cisco Catalyst 4506-E chassis is ideal for Power over Ethernet (PoE) or non-PoE enterprise wiring closets, and small distribution, small core, and branch offices. This chassis support all Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series classic and E-Series line cards.The Cisco® Catalyst® 4500 Series Switches enable borderless networks, providing high performance, mobile, and secure user experience 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 and superior investment protection.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 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/switching performance independent of provisioning of services such as QoS and security. This helps ensure scalability for today’s network requirements with ample room for future growth.
With unprecedented forward and backward compatibility spanning multiple generations, the Catalyst 4500 Series reduces the cost of ownership by minimizing recurring operational expenses, improving return on investment (ROI).
