Catalyst 4510R-E and Line Card Options

I am considering purchasing the following 4510R-E switch items for installation in a new building that will go online shortly.

a) 1 x 4510R-E Chassis (WS-C4510R-E)

b) 1 x Supervisor Engine 6-E (WS-X45-Sup6E)

c) 1 x 24-Port 10/100/1000 Module (WS-X4424-GB-RJ45)

d) 6 x 48-Port PoE 803.3af 10/100 (WS-X4248-RJ45V)

We are purchasing classic line cards for item c and d initially due to budget restrictions.

Three questions:

1) What power supply should I purchase to power this configuration?

2) The 4510 will connect to two Catalyst Blade 3020 switch, each using 4gig etherchannels. Can we do this connecting to item c or do we need an additional card (the only other things attached to item c are probably a Windows storage server and domain controller)

3) Does this sound like it will give us good performance or have I missed anything?

Many thanks for any advice



Re: Catalyst 4510R-E and Line Card Options

1:) Do you plan to use PoE with your line cards? Make sure you plan accordingly. I would recommend using the power calculator for this.

2:)This can be done no problem. No additional equipment required.

3:) You should be fine performance wise. This is a pretty standard setup.
