InLine Power 10/100 48 port (RJ45)

Hi, Can someone please tell me if the Inline Power 10/100 48 port (RJ45) blades (for a Catalyst 4500) will support normal devices such as PCs/Servers etc or are they exclusive to devices requiring power such as IP phones.

I have not heard of a Catalyst 4500 before. Do you mean to say 4600? Anyway, from what I've known, the in-line power blade is capable of supporting BOTH normal PCs devices as well as the Cisco IP phones. You can simply plug whichever devices into these blades. If I were you, I'll reserve these blades for the IP phones since you can also plug a normal PC into these IP phones (cascading).

Hi,

I agree with Mr NGUYEN, the blade can handle both telephones and PC.

And connect them the way that mr NGUYEN describes, though you have to configure the switchport, against the telephone, so that the native VLAN is the VLAN you connects PC to. Then you will configure the port for voice vlan.

But if you dont run VLANs - you dont have to do anything.

Catalyst 4500 should be fully compatible with all Catalyst 4000 blades.

URL describing portalgoritm for inline power:

An example of config cascading (switch--phone--pc):

!

Interface FastEthernet 0/1

power inline auto

spanning-tree portfast

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport mode trunk

switchport voice vlan

switchport trunk native vlan

Hi,

with a inline power module you can use phones or/and pc/server. When you has a Cisco IP Phone 7960 you can use the same port for voice and data.

On the CCO you can find more details.

Regards

Peter
