    Best-in-Class Resiliency

    The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series is designed for excellent nonstop communications with noninterrupted hardware switching. With Cisco IOS XE Software, customers continue to reap the benefits of this best-in-class resiliency in various ways.

    In addition to redundant power supplies, fans, and clock modules, the Cisco Catalyst 4507R+E and 4507R-E chassis support 1 + 1 supervisor-engine redundancy, using the Supervisor Engine 7L-E. The primary supervisor engine is active and is responsible for normal system operation. The secondary supervisor engine serves as a standby, monitoring the operation of the primary supervisor engine. The resiliency features of the Cisco Catalyst 4500E prevent network outages that could result in lost business and revenue.

    ISSU allows you to upgrade or downgrade complete Cisco IOS Software images with minimal (less than 200 msec) to no disruption to the network when using a redundant Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series system with dual Supervisor Engines 7L-E.

    Configuration and other control information between two supervisors is fully synchronized to allow a rapid failover mechanism by the standby supervisor in case of primary supervisor engine failure.

    In addition to ease of management, ISSU dramatically improves the network reliability and availability in a Layer 2 or Layer 3 environment. NSF/SSO and ISSU are essential for business-critical applications such as voice over IP (VoIP) and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments.

    Also, Supervisor Engine 7L-E has resiliency built into its uplinks. Table 2 shows the uplink options on Supervisor Engine 7L-E.

    Table 2.       High-Availability and Uplink Options for Supervisor Engine 7L-E in Dual Supervisor Engine Mode


    Cisco Virtual Switching Systems (VSS)

    Any two Cisco® Catalyst® 4500E Series Switches with this supervisor engine can be pooled together into a VSS. The two switches are connected with 10/1 Gigabit Ethernet links called Virtual Switch Links (VSLs). These links are enabled through fiber as well as on copper connectivity. After a VSS is created, it acts as a single virtual Cisco Catalyst switch delivers up-to 1-terabit of aggregate bandwidth with 450Mpps performance. The solution supports up to 480 ports of 1-Gbps and 124 ports of 10-Gbps systems deployed with VSS. Cisco VSS on the Cisco Catalyst 4500E provides the following primary benefits:

    ●   Simplified network operations:

    ◦     Providing a single point of management (with single IP address), it allows any updates, policy changes, and configurations to be synchronized between the two switches, eliminating error-prone manual synchronization.

    ◦     Forming Multichassis EtherChannel (MEC) to the logical switch, Cisco VSS provides a loop-free topology, no longer needing to rely on Spanning Tree Protocol.

    ◦     A single routing instance on the virtual switch eliminates the issues of managing, tuning, and troubleshooting first-hop routing protocols such as Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) and Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP).

    ◦     Cisco Prime 4.2.2 now enables users to centrally manage the pair of switches as a single virtual chassis.

    ●   Resiliency:

    ◦     Stateful failover between the supervisors on the two chassis provides subsecond failover and transparent failover even to delay-sensitive applications such as voice and video.

    ◦     With EtherChannels extended across two physical chassis, it provides for increased resiliency. These links are configured as MEC, minimizing traffic disruption from switch or uplink failure.

    ●   Increased system bandwidth:

    ◦     The active-active MEC extended across two physical chassis provides for dual bandwidth utilization, increasing return on investment (ROI) and reducing additional capital expenditures (CapEx) to add capacity.

    Simplified Operations through Automation

    As campus switching has grown to support increasing enterprise demands, so has the need to deploy and manage new and evolving technologies. Simplified operations are critical in meeting these challenges and achieving increased operational efficiency through proactive management and reduction in unplanned network downtime.

    The Cisco Catalyst Supervisor Engine 7L-E offers the following rich set of capabilities for simplified operations:

    ●   Auto-Install and AutoQoS for fast deployment

    ●   Config rollback for improved config management

    ●   EEM, Smart Call Home, Generic On-Line Diagnostics (GOLD), and Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) for simplified operations

    ●   FNF and IP SLA for enhanced visibility

    ●   Cisco EnergyWise technology for simplified power management

    ●   ISSU for simplified change management

    Lower Total Cost of Ownership and Ease of Use with Smart Install Director
