|Refer to your software release notes for the latest software release requirements|
|Chassis slot restrictions||Catalyst 4503-E: Slot 1 only
Catalyst 4506-E: Slot 1 only
Catalyst 4507R+E: Slot 3 and slot 4 (redundant supervisor engines supported)
Catalyst 4510R+E: Slot 5 and slot 6 (redundant supervisor engines supported)
Catalyst 4507R-E: Slot 3 and 4 (redundant supervisor engines supported)
Catalyst 4510R-E: Slot 5 and 6 (redundant supervisor engines supported)
|Bandwidth per slot||48-Gbps|
|STATUS LED||The status LED indicates the current health of the supervisor engine and the current software state.|
|RESET switch||The RESET switch is used to reset and restart the switch.
Note The reset switch is recessed into the front panel; you need to use a paper clip or other small, pointed object to press the RESET switch.
|DC STATUS LED||The DC status LED indicates the current status of the wireless daughter card.|
|UID switch and LED||A combination push button switch and LED indicator. The blue LED can be turned on either by pressing the UID switch on the front panel or through software. The main purpose of the beacon LED is to enable identification from a remote location during configuration or troubleshooting. The ability to turn on/off the LED by pressing a switch allows you to walk to the other side of a fully populated rack and identify the switch. Pressing the blue beacon LED switch toggles the beacon LED on and off.|
|USB ports||USB ports are supported with hardware revision 1.1 or higher.|
|CONSOLE port||This is 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
|LINK LED||The 10/100/1000 MGT port has a link LED associated with it..|
|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.
Note When connecting a PC to the Ethernet management port, you must assign an IP address.
|SECURE DIGITAL slot||A standard Secure Data (SD) memory card interface is provided on the front panel|
|SD LED||The SD LED indicates the current status of the SD memory card slot.|
|ACTIVE SUP LED||The active supervisor engine LED indicates whether the supervisor engine is active or in standby mode in redundant supervisor engine configurations.|
|UTILIZATION LEDs||Eight LEDs indicate (as an approximate percentage) the current traffic load over the backplane.|
|1G/10G UPLINKS (SFP/SFP+) ports||The Supervisor Engine 8-E has eight 1-G or 10-G ports that use either SFP transceivers or SFP+ transceivers.|
|Uplink port LEDs||The Uplink port LEDs display status and activity of the uplink ports.|
Supervisor Engine 8-E Front Panel LEDs
|STATUS||Indicates the status of the supervisor engine.
GreenbAll diagniostic tests have passed.
OrangebSystem boot or a diagnostic test is in progress.
RedbA diagnostic test failed.
OffbThe supervisor engine is disabled or is not powered up.
|DC STATUS||Indicates the status of the wireless daughter card.
Flashing greenbThe daughter card is booting.
Flashing orangebThe system is waiting user input.
OrangebA diagnostic test failed.
OffbNo power to the daughter card.
|LINK||Indicates the status of the 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet management port.
GreenbThe link is operational.
OffbNo signal is detected or there is a link configuration failure or the link is disabled by user.
|SD||Indicates the status of the secure digital port.
GreenbSD card is inserted.
OffbSD card has been removed, or the SD card is bad.
|ACTIVE SUP||Indicates whether the supervisor engine is active or standby.
GreenbSupervisor engine is active (in redundant supervisor engine configurations)
OffbSupervisor engine is in standby mode (in redundant supervisor engine configurations)
|UTILIZATION||When the switch is operational, the eight utilization LEDs indicate the current traffic load over the backplane as an approximate percentage value. Each LED lit green indicates approximately 12.5 percent of load.|
|Uplink port status||Indicates the status of the uplink port.
GreenbThe link is operational.
OrangebThe link is disabled by user.
Flashing orangebThe power-on self-test indicates a faulty port.
OffbNo signal is detected or there is a link configuration failure.
|Uplink port active||Three LEDs on the front panel show the uplink port activity.
1-2 ACTIVE indicates ports 1 and 2 are active
3-4 ACTIVE indicates ports 3 and 4 are active
5-8 ACTIVE indicates ports 5 through 8 are active
In standalone supervisor engine configurations, all eight uplink ports are active; all of the ACTIVE LEDs are lit green.
In redundant supervisor engine configurations, only the 1-2 ACTIVE LED and 3-4 ACTIVE LED are lit green.
