Cat 4948

Hi, Experts :)

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/switches/ps5718/ps6021/product_data_sheet0900aecd8017a72e.html#wp9000296

in the end of the data sheet<i>

1 The Cisco Catalyst 4948 has 52 physical switching ports (48 10/100/1000 and 4 SFP) on the front panel. Up to 48 of these ports can be active at one time in any combination.

</i>

Do you know the reason for such restrictions?

Thanks,

Aleksey

Re: Cat 4948

Hi,

Cant find anything to confirm why this is, but you can bet that it will be because the last 4 ports, the SFP ports, will use the same connections onto the backplane as either the first or last 4 rj45 ports.

This is just so you have the option of doing fiber.
