If I am not wrong you have a left module on the chassis, is that right? So you have install a module that supports 10G interfaces? I think for 4500 series there is one line card supporting 6 (or 12) TenG interfaces.

Is it possible to connect a

Is it possible to connect a 10 GIG SFP module(multimode) in the below 4503 switch.

Why would you want to do that?  the 4503-E chassis can't support more than 6 Gbps per slot. 


You may want to upgrade to a 4500R+E chassis and get a bundle (which includes the supervisor card).
