X2 on 4500 Supervisor V-10GE

We have Supervisor V-10GE and I am looking to purchase the correct kit to connect using the 10Gb interfaces.

The 2 switches I am connecting are next to each other and I think that the following interface is correct.

X2-10GB-CX4

But I am not sure what cable I need to purchase? Could someone please advise?

Hi,

You can buy a connecting cable from Cisco, part numbers (starting CAB-INF) at the bottom of the page here:

Although this is probably the cheapest option the distance is limited to a max of 15m so if you think you might move them further apart than this then maybe a fibre connection would be a better investment.

HTH - plz rate useful posts (not just mine!)

Re: X2 on 4500 Supervisor V-10GE

Thanks for the cable advice.

Just one further question...

Each port provides 10Gb; would it be also possible to Etherchannel this connection if required?

Re: X2 on 4500 Supervisor V-10GE

There should be no problem with using both 10GE links in a channel, although there is a probably a minimum IOS version required.

HTH

Andrew.
