Converged wired plus wireless access
The Supervisor Engine 8-E is the first Cisco Catalyst supervisor engine that enables wired plus wireless services on a single Cisco IOS XE software-based platform. With this functionality, Cisco has pioneered a host of rich capabilities such as high availability based on stateful switchover (SSO), granular QoS, security, and Flexible Netflow (FNF) across wired and wireless networks in a seamless fashion.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500E series is designed for excellent nonstop communications with noninterrupted hardware switching. With Cisco IO XE software, customers continue to reap the benefit of this best-in-class resiliency in various ways.
Simplified operations through automation
