Hi,

The 4500 will do it for you, and yes there is a considerable price difference between both, please refer to the Cisco Switch Guide:

Re: Switches

thanks for the reply, i checked the link and i want to know how they calculate that it is 138 Gbps for the 4500 and 32Gbps to 720Gbps for 6500 ??.

Thanks,

Re: Switches

Hi,

This number depends on the Supervisor Engine used with it, for example a 6500 with Sup-720 can have a total BW of 720G, while a SUP

V-10GbE for the 4500 can have a total BW of 136G.
