Hello...I have some questions regarding to upgrade my existing catalyst 4500 series using 10Gig module.

Below are my current Catalyst 4500 specification :

1- Cat4500 E-Series 7-Slot Chassis
2- Catalyst 4500 Supervisor V-10GE, 2x10GE (X2) and 4x1GE (SFP)
3- Catalyst 4500 2800W AC Power Supply (Data and PoE)
4- Catalyst 4500 Gigabit Ethernet Module, 6-Ports (GBIC)

After this i plan to upgrade my 6-Ports Gigabit module to 10 Gig module..Base on my finding in Cisco website, they recommend to use WS-X4606-X2-E Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series 6-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet (X2) module.

My questions ::

1- Is it possible to use this 10Gig module (WS-X4606-X2-E) on my existing Catalyst 4500? Do they have issue's on switch performance?

2- Do i need to upgrade software / firmware version?

3- To install this new module, do i need to off the switch? Or is it hot swappable ?

Needs your advice.
