The new innovation provides the customers of Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch with enormous capabilities. This decade witnessed the growth of video traffic, cloud computing is popularizing, to meet all these business demands in upcoming years Cisco Systems are ready with the Supervisor Engine 2T.
We all know the legacy and popularity of Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches, a de facto industry standard switching platform at the heart of the world’s campus, data center, WAN, and Metro Ethernet networks.
The Catalyst 6500 led the industry’s port transition first from Fast Ethernet speeds to Gigabit Ethernet and then to 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
With introduction of Nexus Series of Switches I was bit afraid what Cisco is going to with the introduction of a new Supervisor Engine for Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch? The introduction of Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 2T on July 12th 2011 eased my curiosity.
The Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 2T has lot to offer, a state of art 2-terabit card that unlocks 80 gigabits per second per slot, new feature-rich 10-gigabit and 10-Gigabit Ethernet line cards, and next-generation borderless services that provide customers with new mobility, security, network analysis and load balancing capabilities.
The Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 2T is compatible with all Cisco E-Series chassis models, offering minimal intervention to the existing Catalyst 6500 E-Series infrastructure. The new Catalyst 6500 Series is available now and the SUP2T has a list price of $38,000.
Some of the features of the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 2T are as follows
The Supervisor Engine 2T maintains backward compatibility with released line cards, chassis, and power supplies.]]>
Cisco announces the launch of new Cisco® Catalyst® 4500 Supervisor Engine 6L-E optimized for high-performance enterprise access.
The new Cisco 4500 Supervisor Engine 6L-E is a high-performance, basic Layer 3 extension to the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series, enabling rich media collaboration and energy and operational efficiency in the wiring closet.
The supervisor engine extends the Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series facilitating performance, enabling services, and protecting investments for enterprises and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) deploying business-critical applications. The competitive pricing on the supervisor engine makes it an ideal entry-point offering.
The Supervisor Engine 6L-E provides a fourfold increase in per-slot switching capacity from previous-generation basic Layer 3 Cisco Catalyst 4500 supervisor engines at 24 Gbps per slot. Primary Supervisor Engine 6L-E performance features include:
• Centralized 280-Gbps switching capacity with 225 mpps of throughput
• IPv6 support in hardware, providing wire-rate forwarding for IPv6 networks
• Dynamic hardware forwarding-table allocations for easy IPv4-to-IPv6 migration
• Advanced quality of service (QoS) support with eight queues per port, dynamic queue sizing, and hierarchical policing
• Dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks (X2 optics)]]>
