PRODUCT BULLETIN NO. 2678
Cisco Systems ® introduces the Cisco ® Catalyst ® 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 32, the next generation of supervisor engine for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series of modular switches targeted for the wiring closet. Supervisor Engine 32, with Policy Feature Card 3B (PFC3B), extends core innovations to the network edge. Based on the industry-leading Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 720 technology, the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 32 allows customers to cost-effectively enable hardware-based security features, such as denial of service (DoS) mitigation to protect network application performance, and scalable support for multicast applications at the network edge.
PFC3B offers CPU rate limiters, hardware-based MAC learning, and user-based rate limiting. It limits threats from the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server, default gateway, or end-user IP address-spoofing using features such as DHCP Snooping, Dynamic Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) Inspection, and IP Source Guard. The supervisor engine allows close control over the end with which users can access the network and what privileges they are granted through identity-based networking with IEEE 802.1x, port-based security, and port-based access lists. These integrated security features are hardware based and can be enabled concurrently without compromising system performance as traffic levels increase.

ANNOUNCEMENT SUMMARY

• Introduction of the two versions of Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 32.

SPECIFICATIONS

Supervisor Engine 32 Highlights

Supervisor Engine 32 offers a robust feature set at a low cost entry point for the wiring closet. Because it comes standard with the PFC3B, Supervisor Engine 32 offers feature consistency with the Supervisor Engine 720. Supervisor Engine 32 comes in two versions: 8x1 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP)-based ports or 2x10 GE XENPAK-based ports.
Supervisor Engine 32 requires the high-speed fan tray when operating in the Cisco Catalyst 6500 chassis. As such, a minimum of 2500W AC (in either 110V or 220V mode) or DC power supply is required for operation in a 6-, 9-, and 13-slot chassis. It requires a minimum of 950W in the 3-slot chassis. Supervisor Engine 32 also can operate in the E-Series chassis or a Cisco 7600 Series Router.
Supervisor Engine 32 can be installed in the same slots as Supervisor Engine 720:

• Slot 5 or 6 in 6-slot or 9-slot chassis

• Slot 7 or 8 in 13-slot chassis

• Slot 1 or 2 in 3-slot chassis

All classic line cards and all CEF 256 line cards (without a distributed forwarding card [DFC]) are supported at first customer shipment (FCS). Service modules and WAN cards will be supported post-FCS.
