Now let’s find out these details,

The Cisco Catalyst 6503-E Switch comes with three slot chassis. In the Cisco Catalyst 6503-E Switch the first two slots are reserved for Supervisor Engine SUP720, if you have one Supervisor Engine SUP720 then you can install the Supervisor Engine SUP720 module either in slot 1 or slot 2.


I will cover these details for other models in my next post.
