The status LED indicates the current health of the supervisor engine and the current software state.

RESET switch

The RESET switch is used to reset and restart the switch.

Note Use a paper clip or other small, pointed object to press the RESET switch.


The active supervisor engine LED indicates whether the supervisor engine is active or in standby mode in redundant supervisor engine configurations.


Eight LEDs indicate (as an approximate percentage) the current traffic load over the backplane.

USB connectors

Two USB 2.0 ports are provided. Port 1 operates in device mode (upstream) and port 2 in host mode (downstream). Port 1 has a standard Type B USB connector and can be used as a USB console.Port 2 has a USB type A connector and a standard USB 2.0 device like a flash memory device can plug into this connector.


A standard Secure Data (SD) memory card interface is provided on the front panel


This is a 10/100/1000 port that uses an RJ-45 connector. The console port allows you th access the switch either locally (with a console terminal) has an RJ-45 connector. The console port allows you to perform the following functions:

Configure the switch from the CLI

Monitor network statistics and errors

Configure SNMP agent parameters

10/100/1000 MGT port

The Ethernet management port is a Layer 3 host port to which you can connect a PC. You can use the Ethernet management port instead of the switch console port for network management. When managing a switch, connect the PC to the Ethernet management port on a Catalyst 4500 E-series switch.

Note When connecting a PC to the Ethernet management port, you must assign an IP address.


The 10/100/1000 MGT port has a link LED associated with it.

1G/10G UPLINKS (SFP/SFP+) ports

The Supervisor Engine 7-E has four 1-G or 10-G ports that use either SFP transceivers or SFP+ transceivers.

Uplink port LEDs

Each of the four uplink ports has two LEDs associated with it. One LED displays port status when a 1-GB SFP transceiver is installed in the port socket. The second LED displays uplink port status when a 10-GB SFP+ transceiver is installed in the port socket.

Indicates whether the supervisor engine is active or standby.

Green—Supervisor engine is active (in redundant supervisor engine configurations)

Off—Supervisor engine is in standby mode (in redundant supervisor engine configurations)


When the switch is operational, the eight utilization LEDs indicate the current traffic load over the backplane as an approximate percentage value. Each LED lit green indicates approximately 12.5 percent of load.

MGT port

Indicates the status of the 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet management port

Green—The link is operational.

Orange—The link is disabled by user.

Flashing orange—The power-on self-test indicates a faulty port.

Off—No signal is detected or there is a link configuration failure.

Uplink link

Indicates the status of the uplink port

Green—The link is operational.

Orange—The link is disabled by user.
