PQ Show 004 – Catalyst 4500X and 4500E – Sponsored

Sometimes you would think that Campus LANs don’t actually exist. In this podcast, we are looking at the Catalyst 4500X product with a team from Cisco. Greg specifically requested to discuss this product to cover products that are used often, but not necessarily so “cool” or fashionable ( thanks to listeners who asked!).

It took a while for everyone to get comfortable, so the first five minutes is a bit slow but it’s well worth hanging on.
