The WS-C4506-E Cisco Catalyst 4506-E Series Switch Chassis is a high-performance, modular switching platform designed for use in enterprise and campus networks. It is part of the Cisco Catalyst 4506-E Series and provides a scalable and reliable solution for network infrastructure.
The product chassis can support up to six line cards, which can be configured with various port options, including 10/100/1000 Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and Fibre Channel. It also supports Cisco StackWise-480 technology, which allows multiple chassis to be stacked together for increased scalability and redundancy.
The chassis is also equipped with advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS), security capabilities, and energy-efficient Ethernet (EEE) to ensure a stable and secure network infrastructure. Additionally, the part supports Cisco IOS XE Software, which provides a flexible and secure operating system for the switch.Chassis Design and 6-slot
The physical design of the WS-C4506-E reflects Cisco's commitment to durability and adaptability. With its 6-slot, the chassis accommodates a range of line cards and modules, allowing organizations to tailor their network infrastructure to specific needs. The fan module within the chassis ensures efficient cooling, contributing to the overall reliability of the system.Fan Modules for Cooling
Efficient cooling is crucial for maintaining optimal performance in network switches. The inclusion of fan modules in the Cisco WS-C4506-E ensures effective heat dissipation, preventing overheating and ensuring the longevity of the hardware. This feature contributes to the switch's reliability and stability in various operating conditions.Power Over Ethernet (PoE) CapabilitiesUnleashing the Potential of PoE
One standout feature of the Cisco WS-C4506-E is its Power over Ethernet (PoE) support. PoE is a technology that enables the simultaneous transmission of data and electrical power over Ethernet cables. This eliminates the need for separate power sources for connected devices, such as IP cameras, VoIP phones, and wireless access points, streamlining installation and reducing cable clutter.Practical Applications of PoE
The inclusion of PoE in the WS-C4506-E makes it an ideal choice for environments where power sources may be limited or difficult to access. Businesses, educational institutions, and healthcare facilities, for example, can benefit from the convenience and flexibility that PoE brings to their network infrastructure. This capability aligns with the increasing prevalence of PoE-powered devices in modern workplaces.Layer 2 ManageabilityNavigating Layer 2 Networking
Layer 2, often referred to as the Data Link Layer, is a crucial component of the OSI model that deals with the efficient and error-free transmission of data between devices on the same network. The WS-C4506-E Series offers Layer 2 manageability, providing administrators with granular control over network traffic and facilitating the creation of secure and segmented network segments.Benefits of Layer 2 Manageability
The Layer 2 support in the WS-C4506-E enhances network performance and security. Administrators can implement features such as VLANs (Virtual Local Area Networks) to logically segment the network, reducing broadcast domains and enhancing overall efficiency. Additionally, Layer 2 manageability facilitates the implementation of protocols like Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), which prevents network loops and ensures network stability.Manageable PoE PortsFine-Tuning Network Connectivity
In addition to its overarching PoE support, the WS-C4506-E boasts manageable PoE ports, allowing administrators to exercise precise control over power delivery to connected devices. This level of manageability is especially valuable in scenarios where power consumption needs to be optimized or where specific devices require different power levels.Dynamic Power Allocation
The WS-C4506-E's manageable PoE ports enable dynamic power allocation, ensuring that each connected device receives the necessary power without exceeding its requirements. This not only enhances energy efficiency but also safeguards against overloading the power budget of the switch. As a result, organizations can achieve a balance between power delivery and resource optimization.Scalability and FlexibilityAdapting to Evolving Network Needs
The modular design of the WS-C4506-E lends itself to scalability, allowing organizations to adapt to evolving network requirements seamlessly. As new technologies emerge or user demands change, administrators can augment the switch with additional line cards or modules without the need for a complete overhaul of the network infrastructure. This flexibility is a key advantage in dynamic and rapidly evolving environments.Compatibility with Cisco Modules
Cisco's commitment to interoperability is evident in the WS-C4506-E's compatibility with a wide range of line cards and modules. Whether organizations require high-speed connectivity, advanced security features, or specialized functionality, the WS-C4506-E can accommodate a diverse array of Cisco modules, ensuring that the switch remains relevant and effective in various networking scenarios.Security FeaturesSafeguarding Network Integrity
Security is paramount in any network environment, and the WS-C4506-E Series incorporates a suite of features to protect against potential threats and unauthorized access. From robust access control mechanisms to secure management protocols, Cisco has integrated security measures to fortify the integrity of networks deploying the WS-C4506-E.Role-Based Access Control
The implementation of role-based access control (RBAC) in the WS-C4506-E empowers administrators to define and enforce access policies based on users' roles within the organization. This granular control ensures that only authorized personnel have access to sensitive network resources, mitigating the risk of unauthorized access and potential security breaches.High Performance
The WS-C4506-E Cisco Catalyst 4506-E Series Switch Chassis is considered to have excellent performance for network infrastructure. This chassis is designed for use in enterprise and campus networks and provides a high-performance switching platform for a wide range of applications.
The chassis supports up to six line card slots, providing a flexible and scalable solution for network expansion. It also supports Cisco IOS XE Software, which provides a flexible and secure operating system for the switch. This allows for advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS), security capabilities, and support for various protocols.
In terms of performance, the product is capable of delivering high-speed connectivity and low latency for a wide range of applications. It supports up to 480 Gbps of switching capacity and can handle large amounts of traffic with ease. It also supports Cisco StackWise technology, which allows for high availability and redundancy in the network.General Information for the Cisco WS-C4506-E Chassis Switch
