Introduction

This document describes the relationship between Cisco Catalyst switches, Supervisor Engine modules and line cards.

Before You Begin

Requirements

There are no specific requirements for this document.

Components Used

Make certain that the version of software that you run supports the supervisor module and line card combination that you want to use. You can check software compatibility with the Software Advisor (registered customers only) tool.

Conventions

Refer to Cisco Technical Tips Conventions for more information on document conventions..

Cisco Catalyst 6500 series Supervisor Engine 720

These are the Supervisor Engine 720 features:

  • the Integrated 720-Gbps Switch Fabric

  • 64-MB bootflash device or CompactFlash adapter with 512 MB CompactFlash card (WS-CF-UPG=):

  • 64-MB bootflash device (sup-bootflash:) supported in all releases

  • WS-CF-UPG= (sup-bootdisk:) supported in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(18)SXE5 and later and Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(18)SXF and later.

Supported Cards and the Minimum Software Requirements

This table lists the supervisor module with the supported Policy feature cards, MSFC cards and the minimum software requirements.

Product Supported Cards Minimum Software Version
WS-SUP 720 PFC 3A with 512-MB DRAM MSFC3 with 512-MB DRAM and 64-MB bootflash 12.2(14)SX
WS-SUP720-3B PFC3B with 512MB DRAM MSFC3 WITH 512 MB DRAM and 64MB bootflash 12.2(17d)SXB1
