Best-in-class resiliency
The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series is designed for excellent nonstop communications with uninterrupted hardware switching. With Cisco IOS
XE Software, customers continue to reap the benefit of this best-in-class resiliency in various ways.
ISSU allows you to upgrade or downgrade complete Cisco IOS Software images with minimal (less than 200 ms) to no disruption to the
network when using a redundant Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series system with dual Supervisor Engines 9-E. Facilitating rapid, nondisruptive
software upgrades for new line cards, new power supplies, new features, or bug fixes, ISSU offers continuous packet forwarding during the
supervisor engine switchover running different Cisco IOS Software releases.
NSF/SSO offers continuous packet forwarding during supervisor engine switchover. Information is fully synchronized between supervisor
engines to allow the standby supervisor engine to immediately take over in subsecond time if the primary engine fails.
NSF/SSO and ISSU dramatically improve network reliability and availability in a Layer 2 or Layer 3 environment. They are essential for
business-critical applications such as Voice over IP (VoIP). These features help ensure that VoIP calls are not dropped.
In addition to redundant power supplies, fans, and clock modules, the Cisco Catalyst 4510R+E and 4507R+E chassis models support 1+1
supervisor engine redundancy, using the Supervisor Engine 9-E. The primary supervisor engine is active and is responsible for normal system
operation. The secondary supervisor engine serves as a standby, monitoring the operation of the primary supervisor engine. The resiliency
features of the Cisco Catalyst 4500E help prevent network outages that could result in lost business and revenue.
Apart from the features previously mentioned, the Supervisor Engine 9-E has resiliency built into its uplinks. Table 2 shows the uplink options
and associated bandwidth allocation on the Supervisor Engine 9-E.

Programmability
The traditional way of configuring and managing Cisco networking devices has been manual configuration through the Command-Line
Interface (CLI). As deployments become more complex, programmability of devices has enabled a shift from manual to automatic network
provisioning and configuration. Managing device configuration programmatically enables you to:
●
Configure and control at scale
●
Check to make sure that dependencies are satisfied before committing a change, and also easily roll back changes when they are not
consistently compatible across the network
Programmability is the capability to configure and manage networking devices using protocols that are specifically designed to be consumed
by software. Supervisor Engine 9-E provides support for:
●
YANG data modeling
●
NETCONF Protocol
●
Representational State Transfer Configuration Protocol (RESTCONF)

Simplified operations through automation
As campus switching has grown to support increasing enterprise demands, so has the need to deploy and manage new and evolving
technologies. Simplified operations are critical in meeting these challenges and achieving increased operational efficiency through proactive
management and reduction in unplanned network downtime.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Supervisor Engine 9-E offers the following rich set of capabilities for simplified operations:
●
Auto-install and AutoQoS for fast deployment
●
Configuration rollback for improved configuration management
●
EEM, Smart Call Home, Generic On-Line Diagnostics (GOLD), and Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) for simplified operations
●
FNF and IP SLA for enhanced visibility
●
Cisco EnergyWise technology for simplified power management
●
ISSU for simplified change management
Application Visibility and Control (AVC) with DNS as an Authoritative
Source (DNS-AS)
AVC with DNS-AS provides a centralized means of controlling the identification and classification of trusted network traffic in an
organization. It accomplishes this by using network metadata stored in a DNS server that is authoritative to the domain in question to
identify applications, Modular QoS CLI (MQC) to classify the corresponding traffic and apply suitable policies, and FNF to monitor and export
application information to an external collector.
AVC with DNS-AS has the following benefits:
●
Application visibility: Helps ensure unambiguous visibility of applications
●
Metadata driven: Uses information about applications
●
Centralized control: Uses a cross-domain application-intent policy controller
●
Control without administrative access: Provides alternatives to controller-based approaches
Modular open application platform – Cisco IOS XE Software
Cisco IOS XE Software is the next-generation operating system for Cisco Catalyst 4500E supervisor engines. Cisco continues to evolve Cisco
IOS Software to support next-generation switching hardware and provide increased architectural flexibility to deliver quick adoption of
future Cisco Enterprise network services, while increasing customer investment protection in Cisco IOS Software.
