How do you calculate power on a Cisco Switch


Recommended Posts

The Cisco® Power Calculator enables you to calculate the power supply requirements for a specific Power over Ethernet (PoE) configuration. The results will show output current, output power, and system heat dissipation. The Cisco Power Calculator supports the following Cisco product switching platforms : Cisco Catalyst® 6500 Series, Catalyst 4500 Series, Catalyst 3750-E/3750, Catalyst 3560-E/3560 Series, Catalyst Express 500 Series, and the Cisco 7600 Series Router.

The calculator is an educational resource and a starting point in planning your power requirements; it does not provide a final power recommendation from Cisco.

To use the Cisco Power Calculator you will need to have a id and password on Cisco.com but once you do just click on this link to get sent to the Power Calculator.
