I have some old 4506E switches with the old 6L supervisor going obsolete in 2020. It needs to be upgraded, and previously I had seen a retail price of around $7000 for the WS-X45-SUP8L-E.
Recently while doing more research on this I see there is a different version 8 supervisor, with a part number of C1-X45-SUP8L-E, and with a retail price around $1500. That is a surprising price drop vs the WS model, which for years has had a Cisco full list price of about $12,000.
Oddly, I can't seem to find anything that talks about both the WS model and the C1 model, what is the same or different between them for tech specs, or why there is such a huge price difference between them.
Is the $1500 for real the proper list price for a new supervisor 8L-E, and not a refurbished unit?
