Cisco 4500 e series tech talk

  1. 1. Catalyst 4500 E-Series with CenterFlex Technology-Technical Deep Dive Agenda 1. Catalyst 4500 Centralized Architecture 2. Catalyst 4500 E-Series Overview 3. Technical Deep Dive –TCAMS –QoS –HA/Management –Multicast Cisco Catalyst 4500 Architecture Cisco Catalyst 4500 Utilizes a Centralized Architecture  Cisco Catalyst 4500 is a shared memory switch  All forwarding, queuing, security is implemented on the Supervisor  The individual line cards are considered to be‘transparent’ -Contain simple “stub” ASICs and the PHY‘s -No local switching  Each classic line card has 6 Gbps (full duplex) connections to the central forwarding engine  E-Series line cards have a 24 Gbps (full duplex) connection to the central forwarding engine

  8. 8. Cisco Catalyst 4500 Classic Architecture Centralized Forwarding: 6 Gbps per Slot Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series Architecture Centralized Forwarding: 24 Gbps per Slot
  9. 9. Switching Module Architecture IEEE 802.3 Flow Control (Blocking GE Ports) 1.802.3x is an IEEE standards-based mechanism used to control data flow 2.802.3x utilizes pause frames (DA MAC 01-80-C2-00-00-00-0F) to signal flow control between endstation and switch 3. Flow control operation steps  Data flows to switch  Switch congested so “pause” frame sent  End station waits required time before sending Cisco Catalyst 4500 supervisors support both Tx and Rx pause frames Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series: CenterFlex Catalyst 4500 Sup 6-E Technical Deep Dive
  10. 10. Catalyst 4500 Offers Higher Feature Capacity     Dedicated hardware capacity for forwarding Dedicated hardware capacity for features Ample headroom for future requirements Line rate performance for security and QoS Scalable and Flexible Services Capacity

  12. 12. CenterFlex Enabled TCAM 4 Flexibility Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series-IPv4 and IPv6 Support
  13. 13.    Centralized architecture allows for easier upgrades Example: TCAM 4-based hardware lookups provide dynamic table sizing for IPv4 to IPv6 migration Upgrade the supervisor in a classic 4500 chassis to get IPv6 in HW and other capabilities CenterFlex Enabled Dynamic Configuration Optimized Space Allocation for IPv4 and IPv6 Configurations!
