Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switches offer an extensive line of modules that support numerous speeds and physical media combinations. These line cards are functionally transparent; all the packet processing, queuing, buffering, and QoS occur in the supervisor engine. To that end, both classic and E-Series line cards acquire the features and capabilities of the installed supervisor engine. For example, a classic line card previously deployed with a classic supervisor engine using four queues per port will automatically have capability for eight queues per port if redeployed with a Supervisor Engine 8-E/7-E/6-E. This architecture enables customers to easily upgrade all Ethernet line cards on their Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series systems to higher layer switching functions by adding a new supervisor engine. The simple design of the line cards results in a very high mean time between failures (MTBF), helping ensure high availability for a single connection to an end user.
