We have around 100 nodes in our network.Can we use a 4507R ? What all are the features and drawbacks of the same ?Also can i know about "Cisco IOS Enhanced L3 C4500 SUP 3/4,DES (OSPF,IGRP,EIGRP,IS-IS)"
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 24 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:
