Product Review

The Cisco WS-C4500X-24X-IPB switch offers 24 10GE ports, catering to high-density, high-throughput networking demands with system throughput up to 800 Gbps and hardware routing capabilities for both IPv4 (up to 250 Mpps) and IPv6 (up to 125 Mpps). However, it lacks a built-in power supply, necessitating an external source, which could be a drawback for some deployments. Its comprehensive feature set, including support for 4094 VLANs, flexible NetFlow entries up to 128,000, and dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU, makes it a versatile choice for complex network infrastructures requiring detailed traffic analysis and management.


The Cisco WS-C4500X-24X-IPB is a high-performance, fixed-configuration switch designed to meet the demanding requirements of enterprise and service provider environments. It features 24 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) connectivity, providing a high-density and high-throughput solution for network backbones, data centers, and high-end campus networks. This switch operates on the IP Base version of Cisco IOS software, offering a comprehensive set of features for Layer 2 switching and basic Layer 3 routing. One of the key hardware specifications of this switch is its power supply configuration. The unit does not come with a built-in power supply, allowing users to select a power supply that matches their specific needs. Cooling is efficiently managed with a front-to-back airflow design, ensuring optimal performance by maintaining a cool operating environment. This is crucial for maintaining system reliability and longevity in tightly packed data centers. Management of the switch is facilitated through a 10/100/1000 Base-T management port, allowing for straightforward integration into existing network management frameworks. Additionally, a Type A USB port provides an alternative method for system configuration and management, offering flexibility in how the switch can be accessed and controlled. The hardware is engineered to support a high level of performance and scalability. With field-replaceable fans, the system's cooling can be easily maintained, ensuring continuous operation. The switch boasts a system throughput of up to 800 Gbps, accommodating growing network demands. It supports IPv4 routing in hardware up to 250 million packets per second (Mpps), IPv6 routing up to 125 Mpps, and Layer 2 bridging up to 250 Mpps, showcasing its capability to handle intensive workloads with ease.
  • MAC entries are supported up to 55,000, allowing for extensive device connectivity and network scalability.
  • Flexible NetFlow entries are supported up to 128,000, enabling detailed traffic analysis and network monitoring.
  • The switch supports up to 8 line rate bidirectional SPAN and RSPAN sessions, facilitating comprehensive traffic analysis and monitoring.
Additional technical specifications include support for up to 4094 total VLANs and same-numbered SVIs, enhancing network segmentation capabilities. It can manage up to 32,000 IGMP groups and 12,000 DHCP snooping entries, bolstering network security and efficiency. The switch also supports a large number of ARP entries (47,000) and Spanning Tree Protocol instances (10,000), further enhancing its network management and resilience capabilities. Jumbo frames of up to 9216 bytes are supported, optimizing performance for large data transfers. The Virtual Switch Link feature, which can operate at 1GE or 10GE, allows for up to 8 maximum number of virtual switch links, facilitating flexible and scalable network configurations. At the core of the switch is a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU, coupled with 4 GB of onboard memory, ensuring swift and reliable operation even under heavy traffic conditions. This combination of powerful hardware specifications and flexible software features makes the Cisco WS-C4500X-24X-IPB an ideal solution for networks requiring high density, high throughput, and advanced routing and switching capabilities.
