Re: WS-X4418-GB on C4006

No limitation be aware of the following:

The WS-X4418-GB Gigabit Ethernet switching module offers two dedicated 1000BASE-X (GBIC) ports (ports 1 and 2) and 16 oversubscribed (possibly blocking) 1000BASE-X (GBIC) Gigabit Ethernet ports. The module provides a Gigabit Ethernet network backbone connection for multiple servers and high-end workstations.

Ports 1 and 2 each have 1-Gbps dedicated bandwidth. These ports are typically used to connect to the network backbone.

The 16 oversubscribed ports (ports 3 through 18) are multiplexed in four groups of four ports each:

*Ports 3, 5, 7, 9

*Ports 4, 6, 8, 10

*Ports 11, 13, 15, 17

*Ports 12, 14, 16, 18

Lines on the front panel of the WS-X4418-GB are used to frame the port groups.

Each group of four ports shares 1-Gbps of bandwidth.

The oversubscribed Gigabit ports are typically used to connect to clients or servers equipped with Gigabit Ethernet network interface cards (NICs).

Re: WS-X4418-GB on C4006

Hi,

Out of 6 slots, first slot is always for supervisor engine. So u can as max of 5 slots and also it can't installed in first slots. It is limitation for any line cards u install in 4506.

i don't find any other limitation for installing WS-X4418-GB on 4006.
