The WS-X6848-SFP-2T/-2TXL operates only in a Catalyst 6500 E-series chassis equipped with a Supervisor Engine 2T-10GE

Requires that modules be installed in adjacent slots or, if either adjacent slot is unused, you must install a switching-module filler plate (Cisco part numbers WS-X6K-SLOT-CVR-E or SLOTBLANK-09) rather than a blank slot cover (WS-X6K-SLOT-CVR) to maintain an adequate air flow through the chassis.

Chassis/slot restrictions

Not supported in the Catalyst 6503 chassis.

Supported only in slots 9-13 in the Catalyst 6513 chassis and does not power up in slots 1-8.

When the WS-X6716-10G module is installed in a Catalyst 6500 E-series chassis or a Catalyst 6509-NEB-A chassis, the configuration is NEBS 3 compliant (chassis supports operating temperatures up to 55°C).

When the WS-X6716-10G module is installed in a Catalyst 6500 non-E series chassis that is equipped with a fan tray 2 and a 2500 W or larger power supply, the configuration is not NEBS 3 compliant (chassis supports operating temperatures up to 40°C only).

Support in the Catalyst 6509-NEB-A chassis requires two FAN-MOD-09 fan trays.

WS-X6816-10G-2T/-2TXL is supported only in Catalyst 6500 E-series switches equipped with a Supervisor Engine 2T.

Requires that modules be installed in adjacent slots or, if either adjacent slot is unused, you must install a switching-module filler plate (Cisco part numbers WS-X6K-SLOT-CVR-E or SLOTBLANK-09) rather than a blank slot cover (WS-X6K-SLOT-CVR) to maintain an adequate air flow through the chassis.

Fabric connection

Dual switch-fabric connections:

Fabric channel 1: Ports 1-8

Fabric channel 2: Ports 9-16

Fabric channel speed

20 Gb/sec (dual channel, 40 Gb/sec total)

Pluggable transceivers support

X2 transceivers are supported. Not all types of X2 transceivers may be supported. For an up-to-date list of supported transceivers, refer to your transceiver compatibility matrices at the following URL.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps5455/products_device_support_tables_list.html

See the "10-GB Transceivers" section in Appendix B for additional information on the X2 transceivers.

Note WS-6716-10GE does not support X2 transceivers shipped prior to the release of the WS-X6708-10GE with Cisco IOS Release 12.2(18)SXF5. The unsupported X2 transceivers are labeled with a number that ends with -01. This restriction does not apply to the X2-10GB-LRM transceiver.

Note Some X2 transceivers shipped prior to the WS-X6716-10GE becoming available might not provide EMI compliance with the WS-X6716-10GE. All X2 transceivers shipped since the WS-X6716-10GE became available provide EMI compliance with the WS-X6716-10GE. See the "10-GB Transceivers" section in Appendix B for additional information.

Digital Optical Monitoring (DOM) support

Supported on some X2 transceivers.

Note Refer to your software release notes for specific information on which X2 transceivers support DOM and the software release required for support.
