Catalyst 6500 Series Switch Chassis Overview


Revised: July 2011

This chapter provides a brief overview of the Catalyst 6500 series switches. For details on the individual Catalyst 6500 series chassis, see the information listed on this page:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/tsd_products_support_series_home.html


Note Throughout this publication, except where noted, the term supervisor engine is used to refer to Supervisor Engine 2, Supervisor Engine 32, Supervisor Engine 32 PISA, Supervisor Engine 720, Supervisor Engine 720-10GE, and the Supervisor Engine 2T.


Catalyst 6503 Switch

The Catalyst 6503 switch is a 3-slot (numbered from (1) top to (3) bottom), 4 RU, horizontal chassis that supports redundant power supplies and redundant supervisor engines. The chassis is NEBS L3 compliant. Supervisor engine support includes:

Supervisor Engine 2, Supervisor Engine 32, Supervisor Engine 32 PISA, and Supervisor Engine 720 are supported.

Note Refer to your software release notes for specific information on the minimum software release versions required to support the supervisor engines in the Catalyst 6503 chassis.

Supervisor engines must be installed in chassis slot 1 or slot 2.

Note Slots not occupied by supervisor engines can be used for modules. Check your software release notes for any restrictions on the type of module that can be installed.

Supervisor Engine 720 has a built-in switching fabric. Switch Fabric Modules (WS-C6500-SFM and WS-X6500-SFM2) are not supported by Supervisor Engine 720. The Switch Fabric Modules and Supervisor Engine 720 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 Switch Fabric Modules and the Supervisor Engine 32 or the Supervisor Engine 32 PISA cannot be installed in the same chassis.

Supervisor Engine 32, Supervisor Engine 32 PISA, and the Supervisor Engine 720 require additional cooling. You must install the optional high-speed fan tray (FAN-MOD-3HS) in the chassis when any of these three supervisor engines are installed.

The uplink ports are fully functional on the redundant supervisor engine when 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 that 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.

Note Slots not occupied by supervisor engines can be used for modules. Check your software release notes for any restrictions on the type of module that can be installed.

Supervisor Engine 32, Supervisor Engine 32 PISA, Supervisor Engine 720, Supervisor Engine 720-10GE, and Supervisor Engine 2T require additional cooling. You must install the high-speed fan tray (WS-C6K-13SLT-FAN2) when using any of these supervisor engines. You must also install a 2500 W or higher capacity power supply in the chassis to power the high-speed fan tray.

Supervisor Engine 720, Supervisor Engine 720-10GE, and Supervisor Engine 2T have a built-in switching fabric. Switch Fabric Modules (WS-C6500-SFM and WS-X6500-SFM2) 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 Switch Fabric Modules and Supervisor Engine 32 or Supervisor Engine 32 PISA cannot be installed in the same chassis.

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

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.
