Cisco Catalyst 4948 Switch - Which Model ?

Hi there,

I am trying to establish what model of Cisco 4948 I have. Whether it's the the standard WS-C4948, WS-C4948-S or the WS-C4948-E. The "show ver" lists the model as WS-C4948 however the unit has dual power supplies and is running the Enterprise Services image. According to this Cisco Bulletin it would be classed as the WS-C4948-E http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/contnetw/ps5680/ps6870/product_bulletin_c25-552113.html.

Could it be that the "show ver" doesn't differentiate between the different variants,  it just list the platform as a 4948


Thanks

Have a look at Table 8 in the 4948 datasheet -

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

Basically if you are running Enterprise Services image it is the 4948-E and if you are running IP Base it is 4948-S. All 4948 switches have dual power supply capability.

HI Scott

Just to add to what Jon wrote :

You would use a combination of Show version, show module, and show bootflash: to determine your model/IOS.

show module - would show the chassis type as WS-C4948

Show bootflash would give the IOS you are running:

1) With EWA series, you would have the following options:

cat4000-i5k91s-mz.122-25.EWA14.bin --- shows an enhanced version (i5) ---> so this would be WS-C4948E

cat4000-i9k91s-mz.122-25.EWA14.bin -- shows a basic version (i9) --> WS-C4948S

2) With other SG Versions, the IOS naming is self-descriptive:

cat4500-entservices-mz.122-53.SG1.bin  - Enterprise services

cat4500-ipbase-mz.122-53.SG1.bin  - IP BASE

cat4500-lanbase-mz.122-53.SG1.bin  - LAN BASE

Based on what you have on your switch, you will be able to determine the base version of the device.

Hope this helps.. all the best..

The Cisco Configurator Tool shows the following models:

WS-C4948      Catalyst 4948, optnl sw, 48-Port 10/100/1000+4 SFP, no p/s     USD 7,995.00

WS-C4948-S      Catalyst 4948, IPB s/w, 48-Port 10/100/1000+4 SFP, 1 AC p/s     USD 10,495.00

WS-C4948-E      Catalyst 4948, ES s/w, 48-Port 10/100/1000+4 SFP, 1 AC p/s     USD 14,495.00  

WS-C4948E      Catalyst 4948E, opt sw, 48-Port 10/100/1000+ 4 SFP+, no p/s     USD 10,495.00

WS-C4948E-S      Catalyst 4948E, IPB, 48-Port 10/100/1000+ 4 SFP+, AC p/s     USD 12,995.00  

WS-C4948E-E      Catalyst 4948E, ES, 48-Port 10/100/1000+ 4 SFP+, AC p/s     USD 16,995.00

What is the difference between WS-C4948 and WS-C4948E (not WS-C4948-E)?  Is this Enhanced?  Cisco.com does not display any information about 4948E.  Also, a chat with a Cisco person could not answer this question.

Re: Cisco Catalyst 4948 Switch - Which Model ?

It looks like the WS-C4948Es support SFP+, which is a new 10Gbps SPF module.  I would assume since this is a hardware difference that you should be able to tell whether your switch is a regular 4948 or a 4948E through the "show module" command, but I haven't seen testing documents for a 4948E to confirm.
