Re: How good is 4507R for a 100 user network?

Hello,

the 4507R should be more than enough for about 100 nodes. It delivers a 64-Gbps switching fabric with a 48-Mpps forwarding rate in hardware for Layers 2–4 traffic. I would get the Supervisor IV, it allows for redundancy and advanced QoS features.

The only drawback I know of is that the 4500 Series does not support NAT.

For a comprehensive listing of L3 features (based on the Supervisor IV), check this link:

Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor Engine IV
