Question about Line Cards

Hello,

I have several 4510E+R switches with the following modules:

 

Mod Ports Card Type                                                      Model             
---+-----+--------------------------------------                        +------------------
 1    48  10/100/1000BaseT Premium POE E Series  WS-X4748-RJ45V+E
 2    48  10/100/1000BaseT Premium POE E Series  WS-X4748-RJ45V+E
 3    48  10/100/1000BaseT UPOE E Series               WS-X4748-UPOE+E
 4    48  10/100/1000BaseT UPOE E Series               WS-X4748-UPOE+E
 5     4  Sup 7-E 10GE (SFP+), 1000BaseX (SFP)     WS-X45-SUP7-E
 7    48  10/100/1000BaseT UPOE E Series               WS-X4748-UPOE+E
 8    48  10/100/1000BaseT Premium POE E Series  WS-X4748-RJ45V+E
10    48  10/100BaseTX (RJ45)                                  WS-X4148-RJ

 

As you can see, the WS-X4148-RJ is an older line card.  Our other 4510s have 2 of these same older line cards installed and are used for the wired side of our Guest network.  Are there any potential negative results of using these older line cards in these chassis?  The reason we do this is so that we have less switches to manage on our network and don't have to worry about purchasing additional equipment to accommodate our wired guests.

 

Thanks!

I'm not aware of any major adverse impact.

The "original" 4500 cards were limited to 6 Gbps per slot, but that's fine for a 48 FE port card.

You can see on the link below

You can see on the link below the bdw per slot, but other than inter-linecard communication limitation you should not have much problem.
