The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series extends control to the network edge with intelligent network services, including sophisticated quality of service (QoS), predictable performance, advanced security, comprehensive management, and integrated resiliency. Scalability of these intelligent network services is made possible with dedicated, specialized resources known as ternary content-addressable memory (TCAM). Ample TCAM resources (up to 384,000 entries) enable “high feature capacity”, which provides wire-speed routing and switching performance independent of provisioning of services such as QoS and security.
