Catalyst 4500 Supervisor 6L SFP Utilization

Answered Question
Jul 8th, 2009

Hi,

I need to design a solution with a catalyst 4507R-E chassi with redundant supervisors (WS-X45-SUP6L-E), and i need 6 SFP's to interconect to 5 remote floors. It's possible use both supervisors slots, or i can't use the redundant supervisors slots ? With this option it's possible to use the two 10GE slots from both supervisors with SFP adaptors and put the 6 SFP's on it ?

Thanks !!!

I have this problem too.

Hello Carlos,

yes it is possible to use the SFP ports on the standby supervisor

see

Capability Codes: R - Router, T - Trans Bridge, B - Source Route Bridge

S - Switch, H - Host, I - IGMP, r - Repeater, P - Phone,

D - Remote, C - CVTA, M - Two-port Mac Relay

router2

Ten 4/1 130 R S I WS-C6509- Ten 4/2

switch>sh module

Chassis Type : WS-C4507R-E

Power consumed by backplane : 40 Watts

6 48 10/100/1000BaseT (RJ45)V, Cisco/IEEE WS-X4548-GB-RJ45V JAE1238UXKZ

This is an handy feature and works well on previous supervisor models I would expect to work also on the sup 6 L -E

Hope to help

Giuseppe
