Product Review

The Cisco WS-C4500X-24X-ES switch offers 24 ports of 10GE, supporting high-speed data transfer with system throughput up to 800 Gbps, making it suitable for environments demanding high bandwidth. Despite its impressive performance capabilities, including IPv4 and IPv6 routing in hardware and support for up to 4094 VLANs, the device lacks an included power supply, necessitating additional investment for operation. It features comprehensive management options through a 10/100/1000 Base-T port, a Type A USB port, and field-replaceable fans, enhancing its reliability and ease of maintenance in enterprise settings.


The Cisco WS-C4500X-24X-ES is a high-performance network switch designed for enterprise networks. This device offers 24 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, catering to the demands for high-speed connectivity and data transfer rates. It operates on Cisco's Enterprise Services software, providing advanced features for network management and security. Despite lacking an included power supply, this model features efficient front-to-back cooling to maintain optimal operating temperatures even under heavy loads. Key to its design is the 10/100/1000 Base-T management port, allowing for straightforward network management. Additionally, it includes a Type A USB port for easy file transfers and software updates. The switch is engineered with five field-replaceable fans, ensuring that the system remains cool and performs reliably under continuous operation. One of the standout features of the WS-C4500X-24X-ES is its impressive system throughput, capable of handling up to 800 Gbps. This high throughput capacity is complemented by its ability to perform IPv4 and IPv6 routing directly in hardware, with rates up to 250 Mpps and 125 Mpps, respectively. Layer 2 bridging is also executed in hardware at speeds up to 250 Mpps, ensuring efficient traffic handling across the network. - The switch supports up to 55,000 MAC entries, providing ample capacity for large enterprise networks. - It can handle up to 128,000 Flexible NetFlow entries, offering extensive traffic analysis capabilities. - The device allows for 8 line rate bidirectional sessions for SPAN and RSPAN, facilitating comprehensive traffic monitoring. With support for up to 4,094 VLANs and the same number of SVIs, the WS-C4500X-24X-ES is versatile in handling multiple network segments. It can manage up to 32,000 IGMP groups and 12,000 DHCP snooping entries, making it well-suited for networks with extensive multicast and security requirements. The switch's capacity for 47,000 ARP entries and 10,000 Spanning Tree Protocol instances further underscores its capability to support large-scale network infrastructures. Jumbo frames up to 9,216 bytes are supported, enabling the efficient transfer of large data packets across the network. This feature, combined with the switch's capability to form up to 8 virtual switch links, either in 1GE or 10GE configurations, enhances its flexibility and scalability in complex network environments. Under the hood, the WS-C4500X-24X-ES is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU and comes with 4 GB of onboard memory, ensuring smooth operation and sufficient processing power for handling network management tasks and data processing. This hardware specification guarantees that the switch can manage its extensive features and maintain high performance. In summary, the Cisco WS-C4500X-24X-ES is a powerful and efficient solution for enterprise networks requiring high-speed connectivity and advanced network management features. Its combination of high throughput, extensive routing capabilities, and flexible configuration options make it a valuable asset for any large-scale network operation.
