The Cisco Catalyst 8500 is a Layer 3-enhanced ATM switch that effortlessly integrates wire-speed Layer 3 switching and ATM switching, which eliminates the need to make a technology choice. The Catalyst 8500 family delivers network solutions with scalable performance, lower cost of ownership, and intranet-based application features to deliver increased business productivity. The Catalyst 8500 switch provides an integrated ATM and Gigabit Ethernet solution in a single chassis.


The Catalyst 8500 Switch Routers provide the next-generation switching model for both switching performance and critical network services. Including support for all IP and IPX routing standards, the Catalyst 8500 family of backbone switches offer a more complete line of sophisticated features than any other Layer 3 switches in their class. The Catalyst 8500 family provides high-speed performance, resiliency, and quality of service (QoS) within the network backbone. The Catalyst 8500 family provides seamless integration with the Catalyst 5000 family, as well as the Cisco 7500 routers for WAN access.


The Catalyst 8500 delivers the performance, scalability, and heartiness required for network production backbones. With the Catalyst 8500 family, Cisco ensures investment protection and migration to new technologies. The Catalyst 8510 offers redundant power supply modules and uses the same power supplies used for the Catalyst 5000 and LightStream 1010 chassis. Additionally, switching modules from the Catalyst 8510 can be used in the bottom five slots of the Catalyst 5500 switch, ensuring customers who have purchased Catalyst 5500 switches a clear migration to high-speed Layer 3 switching and QoS, if necessary.
