Cisco Catalyst 4500E, which we refreshed completely in October last year with the Supervisor 7-E, new line cards, and open application platform (IOS XE), has been winning kudos – both from customers and press. Customers tell us they value the scalability, integrated high-availability, and application visibility that Supervisor Engine 7-E brings to campus access switching. They also tell us that although Supervisor 7-E is great for larger campus deployments, it needs a complementary supervisor that offers rich network services but is better optimized for smaller and medium sized campus deployments.

Leading the industry in POE innovation, the Cisco Catalyst 4500E extends the IEEE POE+ standard with Cisco Universal Power Over Ethernet (Cisco UPOE) to deliver up to 60 Watts per switch port. This gives Cisco customers the deployment flexibility to power a new array of equipment, including Cisco Catalyst Compact Switches.
Today, Cisco announced orderability of the Catalyst 3560CPD-8PT Compact Switch. It is an 8 port GE Compact Switch, which can be powered by Cisco UPOE . This switch also supports PoE Pass-through, which can power downstream devices directly. The 3560CPD-8PT is designed to support unified communications, wireless, IP video, and other applications for retail, hospitality, education, and enterprise customer. This new compact switch is designed specifically to be placed outside the wiring closet, and contains a number of innovative features that give customers flexibility in switch placement and end device support as well as advanced security services and ease of management features.
With Cisco UPOE to power the Catalyst Compact Switches, Cisco customers benefit from networked data and power resiliency and lowered TCO while simplifying their power and IT cabling infrastructure.
