A new Cisco Catalyst Supervisor Engine III supervisor for the 4006 switch has been released.

Cisco Systems has released a new Cisco Catalyst Supervisor Engine III for the Cisco Catalyst 4006 modular switch. The new processor module provides non-blocking switching of 2, 3, 4 levels at 64 Gbit/s using new intelligent traffic processing mechanisms, which allows us to consider the Cisco Catalyst 4006 switch as one of the key components of the AVVID architecture ( integrated video, voice and data transmission architecture).

Recently, switching based on information of 3/4 levels has become an integral part of large and medium-sized campus networks. Cisco Switch The Catalyst 4006 with Supervisor Engine III installed is designed for use in small data centers, distribution nodes of network services and for building small reference networks.

Previously, to provide services above the 2nd level in the 4000 series modular switches, it was necessary to install a separate routing module with 32 10/100 ports and 2 GBIC slots converters. With the release of a new supervisor for the 6-slot model of the Cisco Catalyst 4006 switch, there is no longer a need to install an additional routing module, since all the functions of high-speed switching/routing of 2, 3, 4 levels (48 million packets per second) and multi-level intelligent processing traffic is provided by a single supervisor, which occupies only one slot in a 6-slot chassis.

With high performance, a wide range of IP traffic processing functions and high port density (up to 240 10/100 Fast Ethernet ports, fiber Gigabit Ethernet or 1000 BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet in one chassis), 4006 switch with Cisco supervisor The Catalyst Supervisor Engine III is positioned between the junior models of Level 3 switches Cisco Catalyst 3550 series and the flagship 6500 series of switches.

The cost of the new WS-X4014 module is $14,995*. When installing a new supervisor and modules with 48 ports in the 4006 chassis 10/100 Fast Ethernet to the remaining 5 slots, the average cost is about $177* per port 10/100 Fast Ethernet.
