Product Review

The Cisco WSC4507RE offers notable flexibility with its seven total expansion slots, including five line-card slots and two dedicated slots for supervisor engines, supporting redundancy to ensure continuous operation. However, its significant power consumption, requiring a minimum of 1500W per slot for PoE, demands considerable energy resources and efficient cooling, highlighted by its dual power supply bays and integrated PoE capability. Despite its considerable size at 11U and weight of approximately 44.51 lb, this rack-mountable chassis facilitates bandwidth scalability up to 48 Gbps per slot, accommodating substantial data throughput for high-demand network environments.


The Cisco WSC4507RE is a rack-mountable networking hardware designed for scalable, high-performance enterprise networking solutions. This device stands out for its capacity to support a wide range of networking requirements, from basic connectivity to advanced layer 4 networking services. It comes in an 11U form factor with dimensions of 19.2 inches in height, 17.3 inches in width, and 12.5 inches in depth, weighing approximately 44.51 lb. This makes it both compact and manageable for installation in standard 19-inch racks, with mounting provisions located at the front for easy access and maintenance. This model features a total of 7 expansion slots, which are composed of 5 line-card slots and 2 supervisor engine slots. Notably, the dedicated supervisor engine slots are numbered 3 and 4, and the device supports supervisor engine redundancy, ensuring continuous operation and minimal downtime in the event of a hardware failure. Each line-card slot offers bandwidth scalability up to 48 Gbps, allowing for high-speed data processing and transmission across the network. The device is equipped with 2 power supply bays and supports both AC and DC input power, providing flexibility in power sourcing according to the deployment environment. It also features integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities, with a maximum PoE delivery of 1500W per slot. This allows the device to power PoE-enabled devices directly through the network cables, reducing the need for additional power sources and simplifying deployment of devices such as IP phones and wireless access points. - Expansion Slot Type: Line Card, Supervisor Engine - Layer Supported: 4 - Power Source: Power Supply Redundant power supply is supported, ensuring that the network remains operational even if one power supply fails, thereby enhancing the reliability of the network infrastructure. The device's cooling is managed through a dedicated fan-tray bay, which helps to maintain optimal operating temperatures and prevent overheating. The Cisco WSC4507RE's hardware specifications make it an ideal solution for enterprises seeking a scalable, high-performance networking platform. Its support for both AC and DC power inputs, along with the integrated PoE capability, offers flexibility in deployment and operational efficiency. The device's high bandwidth scalability and support for advanced networking layers ensure that it can handle the demands of modern, data-intensive applications. Furthermore, its support for redundant power supplies and supervisor engine redundancy enhances its reliability, making it a dependable cornerstone for any enterprise network infrastructure.
