Overview (WS-X45-SUP7L-E)

WS-X45-SUP7L-E, the Cisco Catalyst 4500E supervisor engine 7L-E, is the leading borderless networks access and aggregation supervisor engine for the Cisco Catalyst 4500E series. Best-In-Class resiliency feature improves the network reliability and allows supervisor-engine redundancy to prevent network outage when integrates with Cisco catalyst 4507R-E, 4507R+E, 4510R+E or 4510R-E chassis.

Notice that WS-X45-SUP7L-E= is similar with WS-X45-SUP7L-E, except that WS-X45-SUP7L-E= is a spare one.

Supervisor Engine 7L-E Front Panel Features


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

Green—All diagnostic tests have passed.

Orange—System boot or a diagnostic test is in progress.

Red—A diagnostic test failed.

Off—The supervisor engine is disabled or is not powered up.

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

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 represents approximately 12.5 percent of load.

USB connectors

Two USB 2.0 ports are provided:

Port 1 is not supported at this time.

Port 2 operates in host mode (downstream). It has a USB type A connector and a standard USB 2.0 device such as a flash memory device, can plug into this connector.


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


A 10/100/1000 port that uses an RJ-45 connector. The console port allows you to access the switch either locally (with a console terminal) or through a modem (remote). The port 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.

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.

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.


The Supervisor Engine 7L-E has four uplink ports. Ports 1 and 2 support either 10GBASE SFP+ transceivers or 1000BASE SFP transceivers. Ports 3 and 4 support only 1000BASE SFP transceivers. There are restrictions on the use of the uplink ports in both single supervisor engine and redundant supervisor engine configurations and both 10-G and 1-G operation.

Uplink port LEDs

There are two types of LEDs associated with the supervisor engine uplink ports.

Uplink port ACTIVE LEDs

Uplink ports on the supervisor engine are active in pairs. Two LEDs on the front panel show this activity. One LED, labeled 1G/10G 1-2 ACTIVE, indicates ports 1 and 2 are active; the other is labeled 1G 3-4 ACTIVE and indicates ports 3 and 4 are active.

In standalone supervisor engine configurations operating in 1-Gigabit mode, all four uplink ports are active; both the 1-2 ACTIVE LED and 3-4 ACTIVE LED are lit green.

In redundant supervisor engine configurations, only the 1-2 ACTIVE LED is lit green. When one supervisor engine is removed, both the 1-2 ACTIVE LED and 3-4 ACTIVE LED are lit green on the remaining supervisor engine when it is in 1-Gigabit operation. In 10-Gigabit mode, only the 1-2 ACTIVE LED is lit.

Uplink port STATUS LEDs

Uplink ports 1 and 2 each have two uplink port STATUS LEDs. The 1G LED displays port status when a 1-GB SFP transceiver is installed in the port socket. The 10G LED displays port status when a 10-GB SFP+ transceiver is installed in the port socket. Port 3 and Port 4 support only 1-GB SFP transceivers and have only the 1G port status LED.

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.
