Feature
Description

Chassis

Three horizontal slots. Slots are numbered from 1 (top) to 3 (bottom).

Power supplies

Supports one or two power supplies. The following power supplies are supported:

950 W AC-input power supply (PWR-950-AC)

950 W DC-input power supply (PWR-950-DC)

1400 W AC-input power supply (PWR-1400-AC)

Note For information and specifications for each of the supported power supplies, refer to Appendix A, "Power Supply Specifications," in the Catalyst 6500 Series Switches Installation Guide.

Installed power supplies can be of different wattage ratings. Installed power supplies can be both AC-input, both DC-input, or one AC-input and one DC-input. Power supplies can be configured in either redundant or nonredundant mode.

Note For Catalyst 6503 and Catalyst 6503-E chassis that are equipped with DC-input power supplies, the system (NEBS) ground serves as the primary safety ground and must be installed. The DC-input power supplies for these chassis do not have a separate ground.

All Catalyst 6500 series AC-input power supplies require single-phase source AC. Source AC can be out of phase between multiple power supplies or multiple AC-power plugs on the same power supply because all AC power supply inputs are isolated.

Single power supplies are installed in the lower power supply bay. The second power supply is installed in the upper power supply bay.

Supervisor engines

Supports Supervisor Engine 2, Supervisor Engine 32, Supervisor Engine 32 PISA, and Supervisor Engine 720.

Supervisor engines are installed in slot 1 and slot 2.

Supervisor Engine 720 with 10-GB uplink ports (VS-S720-10G-3C and VS-S720-10G-3CXL) is not supported on the Catalyst 6503 chassis.

Supervisor Engine 32, Supervisor Engine 32 PISA, or Supervisor Engine 720 requires that the optional high-speed fan tray (FAN-MOD-3HS) be installed in the chassis.

Supervisor Engine 720 has built-in switching fabric. Switch Fabric Modules (WS-C6500-SFM and WS-X6500-SFM2) are not supported by Supervisor Engine 720 and cannot be installed in the same chassis.

Supervisor Engine 32 and Supervisor Engine 32 PISA do not support the Switch Fabric Modules ((WS-C6500-SFM and WS-X6500-SFM2).

The uplink ports are fully functional on the redundant supervisor engine while it is in standby mode.

Note In systems with redundant supervisor engines, both supervisor engines must be the same model and have the same daughter card configurations. Each supervisor engine must have the resources to run the switch on its own, which means all supervisor engine resources are duplicated. Identical supervisor engine memory configurations are recommended, but are not required as long as the supervisor engine with the smaller memory configuration is sufficient to run the configured features of the switch. Additionally, each supervisor engine must have its own flash device and console port connections.

Modules

Supports up to two Catalyst 6500 series modules.

Does not support the WS-C6500-SFM and WS-X6500-SFM2 Switch Fabric Modules.

Does not support the WS-X67xx modules.

Some Catalyst 6500 series modules:

Are not supported

Require that you install a Supervisor Engine 720

Have chassis slot restrictions

Require a specific software release level

Check your software release notes for specific information on module support.

WS-CAC-6000W (6000 W AC-input power supply)

WS-CAC-8700W-E (8700 W AC-input power supply)

Note The 6000 W and the 8700 W AC-input power supplies are limited to 4500 W maximum output when installed in the Catalyst 6509 chassis.

Note For information and specifications for each of the supported power supplies, refer to Appendix A, "Power Supply Specifications," in the Catalyst 6500 Series Switches Installation Guide.

Installed power supplies can be of different wattage ratings. Installed power supplies can also be both AC-input, both DC-input, or one AC-input and one DC-input. Power supplies can be configured in either redundant or nonredundant mode.

All Catalyst 6500 series AC-input power supplies require single-phase source AC. Source AC can be out of phase between multiple power supplies or multiple AC-power plugs on the same power supply because all AC power supply inputs are isolated.

Single power supplies are installed in the left power supply bay. The second (redundant) power supply is installed in the right power supply bay.

You must install a 2500 W or higher capacity power supply when using the Supervisor Engine 32 or the Supervisor Engine 720 and the high-speed fan tray.

Supervisor engines

Supports Supervisor Engine 2, Supervisor Engine 32, Supervisor Engine 32 PISA, Supervisor Engine 720, and Supervisor Engine 720-10GE.

Supervisor Engine 2 is installed in slot 1 and slot 2.

Supervisor Engine 32, Supervisor Engine 32 PISA, Supervisor Engine 720, and Supervisor Engine 720-10GE are installed in slot 5 and slot 6.

Supervisor Engine 32, Supervisor Engine 32 PISA, Supervisor Engine 720, and Supervisor Engine 720-10GE require that the high-speed fan tray be installed in the chassis. You must also install a 2500 W or higher capacity power supply in the chassis to power the high-speed fan tray.

Note The 2500 W power supply, when supporting the high-speed fan tray, can be powered from either 120 VAC or 220 VAC.

Supervisor Engine 720 and Supervisor Engine 720-10GE have built-in switching fabric. Switch Fabric Modules (WS-C6500-SFM and WS-X6500-SFM2) are not supported by Supervisor Engine 720 and Supervisor Engine 720-10GE and cannot be installed in the same chassis.

Supervisor Engine 32 and Supervisor Engine 32 PISA do not support the Switch Fabric Modules (WS-C6500-SFM and WS-X6500-SFM2).

The uplink ports are fully functional on all redundant supervisor engine models when they are in standby mode.

Note In systems with redundant supervisor engines, both supervisor engines must be the same model and have the same daughter card configurations. Each supervisor engine must have the resources to run the switch on its own, which means all supervisor engine resources are duplicated. Identical supervisor engine memory configurations are recommended, but are not required as long as the supervisor engine with the smaller memory configuration is sufficient to run the configured features of the switch. Additionally, each supervisor engine must have its own flash device and console port connections.

Modules

Chassis supports up to eight Catalyst 6500 series modules.

WS-C6500-SFM and WS-X6500-SFM2 Switch Fabric Modules must be installed in slot 5 or slot 6.

Some Catalyst 6500 series modules:

Are not supported

Require that you install a Supervisor Engine 720

Note For information and specifications for each of the supported power supplies, refer to Appendix A, "Power Supply Specifications," in the Catalyst 6500 Series Switches Installation Guide.

Installed power supplies can be of different ratings. Installed power supplies can also be both AC-input, both DC-input, or one AC-input and one DC-input. Power supplies can be configured in either redundant or nonredundant mode.

Supervisor Engine 2T requires a 3000 W or greater power supply to operate.

All Catalyst 6500 series AC-input power supplies require single-phase source AC. Source AC can be out of phase between multiple power supplies or multiple AC-power plugs on the same power supply because all AC power supply inputs are isolated.

Supervisor engines

Supports Supervisor Engine 32, Supervisor Engine 32 PISA, Supervisor Engine 720, Supervisor Engine 720-10GE, and Supervisor Engine 2T.

Supervisor Engine 32, Supervisor Engine 32 PISA, Supervisor Engine 720, Supervisor Engine 720-10GE, and Supervisor Engine 2T are installed in slot 5 and slot 6.

Supervisor Engine 720, Supervisor Engine 720-10GE, and Supervisor Engine 2T have built-in switching fabric; Switch Fabric Modules are not supported.

Supervisor Engine 32 and Supervisor Engine 32 PISA do not support the Switch Fabric Modules ((WS-C6500-SFM and WS-X6500-SFM2).

The uplink ports are fully functional on all redundant supervisor engine models when they are in standby mode.

Note In systems with redundant supervisor engines, both supervisor engines must be the same model and have the same daughter card configurations. Each supervisor engine must have the resources to run the switch on its own, which means all supervisor engine resources are duplicated. Identical supervisor engine memory configurations are recommended, but are not required as long as the supervisor engine with the smaller memory configuration is sufficient to run the configured features of the switch. Additionally, each supervisor engine must have its own flash device and console port connections.

Modules

Chassis supports up to eight Catalyst 6500 series modules.

Some Catalyst 6500 series modules:

Are not supported

Require that you install a Supervisor Engine 720

Have chassis slot restrictions

Require a specific software release level

Note Check your software release notes for specific information on module support and restrictions.
