We are still using several old 4006 chassis in our closets. They work fine, have redundant power, and we have a few spare WS-X4148-RJ switch blades just in case we lose one somewhere -- so there's been no real motivation to upgrade.
Until now. One department wants VoIP. So we are looking into PoE switches. The old 4006 "supports" PoE, but I think I'd have to buy the modules off e-bay or something like that, which I'm reluctant to do.
So I'm wondering if it's somehow possible to use an x4648 PoE blade in the4006 chassis. I'm guessing this won't work, but I can't tell from looking at the specs if the power on the 4648 is actually on the blade itself, or if it still resides on the chassis, say a 4506.
In short, I'm just looking to see if there is some way to use a single PoE switch blade in my 4006 chassis, which does NOT currently have the auxiliary power shelf or the power entry module.
