Are the Cisco Catalyst 4948 and Cisco Catalyst 4948-10GE stackable?

In the Cisco sense of stackable, no.

As Reza notes you might want to consider the 3750 series, although if you ned 4948 performance you would want the 3750-E series.

"Also what is the max IP interfaces for each? "

Don't know for certain, but might be a value perhaps in the hundreds if not thousands.

Hi Wade,

No, if your requirement is stacking, I would recommend 3750s.

Stackable? NO

Cluster? He11 YES!

Stackable switches:

3750/3750E series switches & 2750 series switches.

Hope this helps.

Very much. Thanks.

Re: Stackable switches

Cluster is different than stackable. Stackable typically means that the switches will share a very big backplane between switches that is usually through a proprietary cable.

Clusters, while allowing you to manage multiple switches as if they are a single switch, will only provide a backplane as fast as your uplink. For the 4948s that would 1Gbps or 10Gbps depending on your model.
