4500 / 6500 switches in the Enterprise Composite Network Model

Where do Cisco 4500 / 6500 series switches fit in the Enterprise Composite Network Model?  Can they represent not only a collasped core but the core router (AS Border router) as well?

4500 / 6500 switches in the Enterprise Composite Network Model

Hello,

The 4500 and 6500 Catalyst series can be used on all layers, starting with access layer, providing a high port density, through the distribution up to the core layer. The 6500, and its followup, 6800, are typical enterprise campus core switches.

Best regards,

Peter
