Are all ports on Catalyst 4500X Gigabit/10-Gigabit or just the ports on 8-port module. We are looking at 4500X for campus distribution layer but need Gig ports to access switches for now and may year from now will be using 10G.
Yes, you can do Gig or 10Gig with these new switches. All you have to do is change optics, but it only applies to the 32 port and 16 port
From the data sheet:
module. Both the 32- and 16-port versions can be configured with optional network modules and offer similar features. 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. The uplink module is hot swappable.
So does that mean the 8-port module can only do 10G and not 1G/10G? I read that data sheet and the video data sheet from "sachin gupta" but it is not clear enough (to me at least) because for the most part it says 10 Gigabit and I want to make sure we have 1G/10G on all ports including 8-port mod otherwise will have to look at Nexus 5548P with L3 mod.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
