Description
Catalyst 4500 Series switches are Cisco`s leading modular switches for borderless access and price/performance distribution deployments. They offer best-in-class investment protection with forward and backward compatibility and deep application visibility with Flexible NetFlow. The Catalyst 4500 Series Switches meet FIPS 140-2 overall Level 2 requirements as multi-chip standalone modules. The switches include cryptographic algorithms implemented in IOS software as well as hardware ASICs. The module provides 802.1X-rev.
