®
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switches provide scalable nonblocking Layer 2–4 switching with
secure, flexible, nonstop communications, enabling business resilience for enterprises, small and
medium-sized businesses (SMBs), and Metro Ethernet customers deploying business-critical
applications. The Cisco Catalyst 4500 delivers predictable and scalable high performance, with
advanced dynamic quality-of-service (QoS) capabilities and configuration flexibility for enterprise
wiring closets and SMB access/core. Integrated resiliency features in both hardware and software
maximize network availability, helping to ensure workforce productivity, profitability, and customer
success. Its centralized, innovative, and flexible system design helps ensure smooth migration to
wire-speed IPv6 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The flexibility, scalability, and forward and backward
compatibility between generations of the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series extend deployment life,
providing exceptional investment protection, reducing the total cost of ownership.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series is a high-performance next-generation extension to the Cisco
Catalyst 4500 Series. The new “E-Series” is composed of the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series
Supervisor Engine 6-E, E-Series line cards, and E-Series chassis that are designed for secure,
flexible, nonstop communications with superior backward and forward compatibility delivering
exceptional investment protection for organizations of all sizes.
Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series and Classic Line Cards
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series offers two classes of line cards: classic and E-Series. Classic line
cards provide 6 gigabits of switching capacity per slot. E-Series line cards increase the per slot
switching capacity to 24 gigabits. This increase in per slot switching capacity with the E-Series line
cards requires the Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series chassis and the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series
Supervisor Engine 6-E. Classic line cards may be deployed in both classic and E-Series chassis
with either classic Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series supervisor engines or with the Supervisor Engine 6E. With the Supervisor Engine 6-E, the classic line cards per slot switching capacity remains at 6
gigabits per slot. However, because of the centralized switching architecture of the Cisco Catalyst
4500, the classic line cards will adopt all of the new Supervisor Engine 6-E features such as eight
queues per port, dynamic QoS, and hardware-based IPv6 routing. Please refer to the Supervisor
Engine 6-E data sheet for more feature details. Classic line cards and E-Series line cards may be
mixed and matched within a Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series chassis with no performance
degradation: classic line cards will operate at 6 gigabits per slot, and E-Series line cards will
operate at 24 gigabits per slot. Table 1 summarizes the chassis and supervisor support for both
classic and E-Series line cards.

Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series Gigabit Ethernet Line Cards
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series 48-port Gigabit Ethernet line cards provide high-performance
10/100/1000 switching at 24 Gbps per slot. (2:1 oversubscribed). The Cisco Catalyst 4500 48-port
10/100/1000 E-Series line cards are designed for LAN access applications where desktop users
require gigabit connection speeds. The Cisco Catalyst 4500 48-port 10/100/1000 E-Series line
cards are available in two versions: one with standard PoE 802.3af, and the second one with
standard PoE 802.3af and PoEP ready features such as support for up to 30 Watts per port.
Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series 10 Gigabit Ethernet Line Card
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series now supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet line cards. The Cisco Catalyst
4500 6-port E-Series 10 Gigabit Ethernet line card (2.5:1 oversubscribed) can be deployed for
high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet aggregation in the campus, in small to medium networks as
a core switch, or for high-performance wiring closets where additional 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks
are required. The Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series 6-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet line card supports
standard X2 optics as well as the Cisco TwinGig modules. The Cisco Catalyst 4500 48-port
10/100/1000 E-Series linecards are available in two versions: one with data-only capabilities, and
the second one with standard PoE 802.3af and PoEP ready features such as support for up to 30
Watts per port.
The Cisco TwinGig Converter Module converts a single 10 Gigabit Ethernet X2 interface into two
Gigabit Ethernet port slots, which can be populated with appropriate Small Form-Factor Pluggable
(SFP) optics, providing a total of 12 wire-speed Gigabit Ethernet ports if used in all 6 X2 interface
slots. The flexibility provided by the TwinGig Converter Module enables customers to aggregate
Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet LAN access switches on a single line card. The ability to
support either Gigabit Ethernet uplinks or 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports on a single line card further
demonstrates the flexibility and the investment protection of the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series
architecture (Figure 1).
TwinGig modules convert a single X2 port into two Gigabit Ethernet SFP ports.

Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series and Classic Power over Ethernet Line Cards
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series offers line cards, power supplies, and accessories required to
deploy and operate a standards-based PoE internetwork. PoE provides –48 VDC power over
standard Category 5 unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable up to 100 meters when an IEEE 802.3afcompliant or Cisco prestandard powered device is attached to the PoE line-card port. Instead of
requiring wall power, attached devices such as IP phones, wireless base stations, video cameras,
and other IEEE-compliant appliances can use power provided from the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series
PoE line cards. This capability gives network administrators centralized control over power and
eliminates the need to install outlets in ceilings and other out-of-the-way places where a powered
device can be installed.
Although all references to “PoE,” “inline power,” and “voice” power supplies and line cards are
synonymous, there are currently only two versions: Cisco prestandard and IEEE 802.3af
compliant. Every Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series chassis and PoE power supply supports the IEEE
802.3af standard and the Cisco prestandard power implementation, helping ensure backward
compatibility with existing devices powered by Cisco. All IEEE 802.3af-compliant line cards can
distinguish an IEEE or Cisco prestandard powered device from an unpowered network interface
card (NIC), helping ensure power is applied only when an appropriate device is connected.
Cisco Catalyst 4500 Classic Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Line Cards
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series offers a variety of classic Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet line
cards that include fiber and copper interfaces optimized for desktops, branch office backbones,
and servers for enterprise and commercial switching solutions, and service provider metropolitan
Ethernet networks. Gigabit Ethernet line cards include cost-effective, high-performance
1000BASE-X gigabit interface converter (GBIC) and SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet line cards and
the high-density 10/100/1000BASE-T triple-speed autosensing, autonegotiating Gigabit Ethernet
line cards. Fast Ethernet line cards include various densities of wire-speed 10/100, 100-FX,
100BASE-LX10, and 100BASE-BX-D options.
Features and Benefits
Functionally Transparent
Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series switches offers an extensive line of modules that support numerous
speeds and physical media combinations. These line cards are functionally transparent; all the
packet processing, queuing, buffering, and QoS occur in the supervisor engine. To that end, both
classic and E-Series line cards acquire the features and capabilities of the installed supervisor
engine. For example, a classic line card previously deployed with a classic supervisor engine using
4 queues per port will automatically have capability for 8 queues per port (first half CY2008) if
redeployed with a Supervisor Engine 6-E. This architecture enables customers to easily upgrade

all Ethernet line cards on their Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series systems to higher-layer switching
functions by adding a new supervisor engine. The simple design of the line cards results in a very
high mean time between failures (MTBF), helping ensure high availability for a single connection to
an end user.
Modular Versatility
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series is a centralized architecture that is designed to provide dedicated
wire-speed bandwidth to each line-card slot within the chassis. Each line card has a dedicated
bandwidth to the supervisor engine for packet processing. All network data that flows into the
Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series through the various line cards goes through the supervisor engine for
processing, even in single-slot port-to-port communications. All line cards have some per slot
bandwidth that allows network administrators to design a system that offers full dedicated
bandwidth-to-server and switch-to-switch applications and still provide high performance over
subscribed gigabit to the desktop.
A modular centralized design allows customers to use their investment in high-performance line
cards across the entire line of Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series chassis and supervisor engines. For
example, line cards that shipped with the original Cisco Catalyst 4003 Switch in 1999 will work in
the Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series chassis. Because of the centralized architecture of the Cisco
Catalyst 4500, all line cards deployed in a chassis benefit from the enhanced features the
supervisor engine provides including Security, QoS, Layer 2/3/4 routing, and hardware-based
IPv6.
Following are descriptions of line cards that are available for Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series switches.
