Faq (WS-C4500X-16SFP+)

Does it support AC power? If support, what's the max rated power?

Yes, it support. The max rated power is 750W.

Then how about the system power consumption?

330W nominal/400W max.

Does it suppport AC to DC failover and vice versa?

Yes, it support. The max rated power is 750W.

Are the E-Series line cards supported in non-E-Series chassis?

No. The classic Cisco Catalyst 4000 and 4500 chassis maximum per slot capacity is 6 gigabits per slot.

Is local switching supported on the E-Series line cards?

No. It is not supported on the Cisco 4500-E line cards.

Are there any visual differentiators between the E-Series line cards and the classic line cards?

Yes, of course. The E-Series line cards will have a subtle cross-hatch pattern and a yellow circle on the right end tab, visually identifying them as E-Series line cards. This will be useful in a mixed E-Series/classic line-card configuration.

What is Cisco software activation?

Cisco software activation is the mechanism used to activate software features and components on the next-generation supervisor engines for the Cisco Catalyst 4500E, the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Supervisor Engine 7-E and 7L-E, as well as on the Cisco Catalyst 4500-X Series switches. Cisco software activation is used to generate a unique license key for a feature set or technology package on a specific device, and activate that functionality on the system.

Which licenses are available for Supervisor Engine 7-E, 7L-E or a Cisco Catalyst 4500-X Series system?

See the following table for package licenses. These will be delivered with new Supervisors or available as an upgrade through Cisco software activation. The Cisco Catalyst 4500-X Series only supports IP Base (default) and Enterprise Services (as an upgrade).

Package Name


License Types

LAN Base



IP Base

IP Base

Permanent, temporary

Enterprise Services

IP Base

Permanent, temporary

What is a universal image?

The universal image contains all feature packages: LAN Base, IP Base, and Enterprise Services feature sets. The level of functionality available is determined by the license applied to the device. A software activation license (SAL) enables specific functionality. For example, an IP Base package license enables IP Base functionality in the Cisco IOS Software universal image.

What is a product authorization key?

A product authorization key (PAK) is an 11-digit alphanumeric key created by Cisco manufacturing which defines the feature set associated with the PAK. A PAK is not tied to a specific device until the license is created.

Power supply

Is the power supply comes with the switch?

Hi friend, WS-C4500X-16SFP+ has no power supply by default. Suggest to buy the power C4KX-PWR-750AC-R separately.
