4500X - support 10G/1G - copper modules

Hi Team,

Could you please advise, if 4500X supports both 10G and 1G ? I could see only 10G support in datasheet . Also please advise for connecting copper, we need to use copper transceivers , as copper modules are not available for 4500X, right ?

SFP+ ports support 10g or gig SFPs.  The datasheet has:

• Platform Scalability: Delivers up-to 800 Gbps of switching capacity, capable of scaling up to 1.6-Tbps capacity with the VSS technology. Future-proof investment with modular uplink and auto-detect 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports.


The Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+)  interface supports both 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 1 Gigabit Ethernet  ports, allowing customers to use their investment in 1 Gigabit Ethernet  SFP and upgrade to 10 Gigabit Ethernet when business demands change,  without having to do a comprehensive upgrade of the existing deployment.

Regarding you question about copper, I didn't check which specific SFP modules are supported, but likely copper SFP are on it.
