Has anyone used a 4510 as an access switch, i have inherited a system doing just that, and to be honest the cabling is a logistical nightmare. I've got two supervisors, one 48 port SFP card, and seven 48 port RJ45 cards. This is causing a huge headache just because of the quantity of cabling in the rack. Anyone else using a 4510 for this type of role?
I too have used a 4510 as an access switch loaded down with 48 port blades. It is a challenge to manage that many cables. If done right the first time and properly maintain the cables you will be fine.
As Victor quite rightly says this is quite common. In the last place i worked we deployed 4510R's into the access-layer for a VOIP deployment. I don't recall any major issues with the cabling - yes there is a lot of it but with structured cabling it is easily managebale.
There are probably a million networks out there using a 4510 for this role. So what is it you need help with?
