We currently have an environment with a 4507 as the core switch connected to four stacks of 3750e's in the wiring closets. A pair of Nexus 5548UP's also hangs off the 4507, but at the moment more or less dedicated to a certain purpose..The 5548UP's have the L3 daughter card installed.
My question is: Can a pair of Nexus 5548UP's do a C4507's job? Would we be able to decomission the 4507 and replace with the existing 5548UP's + FEXes?
I am looking at a similar thing. You cannot do PoE on a Nexus.The 5548UP's will do everything else so long as you are licensed. The 5548 replaces the supervisor and the Nexus 2000 replace the line cards. You only have 10G on the Nexus and SFP slots which is why you need the 2000's.
Something you may be able to help me with - does the 5548 daughter card come with a L3 license or does this need to be purchased seperately?
