Cisco IOS® Software Release 15.1(2)SY1 adds hardware support for the new Cisco® Catalyst® 6807-XL and 6880-X Series Switches while continuing to extend the rich set of features from Release 15.1(2)SY.

The latest technology trends such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), collaboration, Internet of Things (IoT), and workforce mobility are promoting enterprise IT to roll out rich network-based services and deliver on the growing demands of the next-generation enterprise. Cisco Catalyst 6800 Series Switches are next-generation SDN-ready campus backbone switches optimized for 10G/40G/100G services. They provide scalable, smart, simple, and secure services based on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 DNA for investment protection.

Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL is a future-proof backbone platform to scale your campus services with no compromise.

Cisco Catalyst 6880-X is a mini but mighty backbone platform with high density of 10G and rich services.

Catalyst 6807-XL and 6880-X offer a one-year Limited Lifetime Warranty and competitive smartnet pricing.

For detailed information about the features and hardware supported in Release 15.1(2)SY1, refer to the Cisco IOS Software Release 15.1(2)SY1 release notes and customer documentation at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/15.1SY/release_notes.html.

Scalability

Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL (Figure 1) is a modular 7-slot switch for campus backbone with up to 880 G/slot capacity and 11.4 Tb/s (full duplex) switching capacity. It is optimized for 10/40/100 Gigabit campus services. It offers higher slot and switching capacity for the services of today and tomorrow in the campus.

Investment Protection

True to the long history of the Cisco Catalyst 6500 of maintaining support and interoperability of modules, the Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL provides unprecedented investment protection by supporting the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 2T and its family of line cards and service modules. This backward compatibility coupled with the use of the same Cisco IOS Software operating system as used on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch not only eases the burden of upgrades and migration but also reduces the total cost of ownership.

Features and Benefits

The Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL chassis with the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 2T supports the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Cisco IOS Software operating system, the same operating system used on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches. With more than 3000 features, Cisco Catalyst 6500 Cisco IOS Software is a highly evolved and mature operating system that delivers the performance, reliability, and lifecycle expected of a campus backbone switch.

Cisco Catalyst 6880-X

The Cisco Catalyst 6880-X Series Switch (Figure 2), part of the Cisco Catalyst 6800 product family, is an extensible fixed aggregation switch that delivers best-in-class Cisco Catalyst 6500 features in a fixed form factor. This 40G/100G ready platform is ideal for those who want to introduce premium 10G services in small or midsize campus backbones. Based on the proven and stable Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 2T architecture, this unique platform delivers unprecedented capabilities on day one that include best-in-class scalability, flexible 10G port density, a complete suite of L2/L3 virtualization, Virtual Switching System (VSS), Cisco Instant Access1, Application Visibility and Control (AVC), Security (Cisco TrustSec ®), multicast, IPv6, and rich media services (Medianet). With full MPLS/VPLS functionality and large table sizes (up to 2M IPv4 routes), this platform also offers a cost-optimal solution for Internet edge/peering deployments as well as emerging leaf-spine models.
