Cisco's new modular switches are the Catalyst 4500 series.
Company Race Communications begins deliveries of new models of modular Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series switches . The series includes 3 types of chassis: Catalyst 4503, Catalyst 4506 and Catalyst 4507R, having respectively three, six and seven slots for installing expansion modules. All modules are hot -swappable.
Created on the basis of the proven architecture of the series Catalyst 4000, High Redundancy Switches The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series supports a full set of expansion modules developed for the Catalyst 4000. The main features of the new platforms include integrated power support IP phones (in-line power). The Catalyst 4507R model also has the ability to install a backup processor module.
In the Cisco Catalyst 4500 switch chassis The series provides additional power supply circuits for expansion modules that support in-line power supply technology for IP phones, as well as the possibility of using high-power power supplies. Thus, there is no need to use an external power supply for the operation of IP phones on new switch models , as was required for the Cisco Catalyst 4006.
The Cisco Catalyst 4507R switch supports up to two processor modules Supervisor Engine IV, which provides module redundancy. Previously, this feature was only available on the flagship Cisco Catalyst 6000/6500 series. It is worth noting that only Supervisor Engine IV can be used with the Catalyst 4507R platform.

The new Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series switches are managed over the network using a single universal Cisco IOS software, which ensures high compatibility with other Cisco switch models.
The 4500 Series switches are positioned for use in switching cabinets of enterprises or in offices of divisions where integrated access to a distributed network with voice, data and video support is required. This family of switches is the optimal solution for industrial communication nodes that require a high level of manageability and stability.
