Additional Information
Cisco Catalyst 4500-X Series Switches (Cisco)

The fixed-aggregation Cisco Catalyst 4500-X Series Switches deliver best-in-class scalability, simplified network virtualization, and integrated network services for space-constrained environments in campus networks.

Cisco Catalyst 4500-X Series Switches help you easily meet business growth objectives. The switches:

  • Offer scalability of up to 25 times more routes and eight times more multicast entries than competitor's products
  • Come in a one-rack unit (1 RU), with a low-power form factor
  • Support Virtual Switching System (VSS) to provide resiliency, and increased operational efficiency with a single point of management
  • Offer up to 1.6 Tbps of switching capacity with VSS

The switches also can simplify deployment of scalable Layer 3 network segmentation with Easy Virtual Networks (EVN).

In addition, Cisco Catalyst 4500-X Series Switches reduce total cost of ownership by integrating network services for video (medianet), security (Cisco Trustsec), and application visibility (Flexible NetFlow, Wireshark).

Highlighted Capabilities

Cisco Catalyst 4500-X Series Switches support Easy Virtual Network (EVN), which simplifies creation of separate logical networks on a single physical infrastructure. Each of these has different security and routing polices, traffic separation, and path isolation. EVN uses existing protocols, along with virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) technology, in a complete network virtualization solution with shared services and enhanced management.

The switches also run the modular IOS XE operating system that supports third-party applications such as Wireshark protocol analyzer. The switches lower capital expenditures (CapEx) while simplifying troubleshooting with Wireshark.
