Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(13)E3 for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch and the Cisco 7600 Series Router


This publication contains information regarding Cisco IOS® Software Release 12.1(13)E3 for:

  • The Cisco Catalyst® 6500 Series Switch and the Cisco 7600 Series Router running Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 2 with MSFC2, or
  • The Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch running the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 1A with MSFC1 or MSFC2.

Note:    For information about running Cisco Catalyst Operating System Software on the Cisco Supervisor Engine and Cisco IOS Software on the Multilayer Switch Feature Card (MSFC), see the release notes for Cisco IOS Software on the MSFC at: http:// www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/ product/lan/cat6000/relnotes/index.htm



Note:    Optical Services Modules (OSMs) for the Cisco 7600 Series Router and the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch are supported with Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 2 and the Multilayer Switch Feature Card 2 (MSFC2) only.



Note:    Beginning with Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(13)E, the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series adds three new LAN-module-only feature sets: Service Provider LAN Only, Enterprise LAN Only, and Enterprise LAN Only with Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol and Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES).


WAN interface modules for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series and the Cisco 7600 Series, including the FlexWAN Module and all OSMs, are not supported in these three new feature sets. Images supporting WAN interface modules are signified in the feature set description using the qualifier "with VIP" such as "Service Provider with VIP," "IP/IPX with VIP," or "Enterprise SSH 3DES with VIP."

  • Multilink PPP (MLPPP)—Hardware-enabled MLPPP with up to 12 T1/E1 links per bundle and up to 168 bundles
  • Compatibility with either a Cisco 7600 Series or a Catalyst 6500 Series chassis (requires a supported Cisco Supervisor Engine)
One-port channelized OC-12/STM-4 to DS-0 OSM

OSM-1CHOC12/T1

The channelized OC-12/STM-4 OSM can accept both clear-channel OC-12/STM-4 traffic and multiplexed circuits from T1/E1 and DS-0. With a large combination of features and performance, Cisco provides a versatile optical interface for sophisticated network architectures and eliminates the need for patch panels, cabling of multiple electrical circuits, and an onsite fiber multiplexer. Service features include:

  • 4 LAN GE GBIC interfaces per module
  • MPLS and MPLS/VPN support
  • QoS—CBWFQ, LLQ, WRED, and traffic shaping
  • QoS queues—8000 queues per network processor with deeper per-queue buffering for traffic shaping

WAN support for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Network Analysis Module-1

WS-SVC-NAM-1

The high-performance, fabric-enabled network analysis module (NAM) for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series and Cisco 7600 Series is designed to meet diverse network analysis needs in a scalable switching environment running up to gigabit speeds. NAM-1 and NAM-2 are supported by Cisco NAM Software Version 2.2, which ships with the embedded, Web-based Cisco Traffic Analyzer, to provide full-scale remote monitoring (RMON) and troubleshooting capabilities.

Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(13)E3 provides NAM support for traffic traversing a WAN link using either an OSM or a FlexWAN module.

WAN support for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series NAM-2

WS-SVC-NAM-2

Similar to NAM-1, NAM-2 delivers a higher level of performance by virtue of a dual-processor architecture. NAM-2 also features an additional accelerator card to boost packet-processing performance.

Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(13)E3 provides NAM support for traffic traversing a WAN link via either an OSM or a FlexWAN module.

WAN support for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Firewall Services Module

WS-SVC-FWM-1-K9

The Cisco Firewall Services Module delivers 5 Gbps throughput and 100,000 connections per second, with integrated stateful inspection up to Layer 7. This extends security from the edge to internal networks, helping implement end-to-end security policies for the network.

WAN support for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Content Services Module

WS-X6066-SLB-APC

The Cisco Content Switching Module (CSM) for the Cisco Catalyst® 6500 and Cisco 7600 balances client traffic to farms of servers, firewalls, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) devices, or virtual private network (VPN) termination devices.

The Cisco CSM provides a high-performance, cost-effective load-balancing solution for enterprise and Internet service provider (ISP) networks. The Cisco CSM meets the demands of high-speed content delivery networks, tracking network sessions and server load conditions in real time and directing each session to the most appropriate server. Fault-tolerant Cisco CSM configurations maintain full state information and provide true hitless failover required for mission-critical functions.

Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(13)E3 provides firewall support for traffic traversing a WAN link via either an OSM or a FlexWAN module.

WAN support for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series SSL Services Module

WS-SVC-SSL-1-K9

The Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series SSL Services Module provides 2500 connections per second and 300 Mbps Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption and decryption security for secure processing of Web-based applications and e-commerce Web sites.

Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(13)E3 provides SSL support for traffic traversing a WAN link via either an OSM or a FlexWAN module.

Other Hardware Supported

Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(13)E3 supports all line cards and hardware previously supported by Cisco IOS Software on the Cisco Supervisor Engine 2 with MSFC2 for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series and Cisco 7600 Series, and Cisco Supervisor Engine 1A with MSFC or MSFC2 for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series.

Orderable Software Images

Tables 3, 4, and 5 list product numbers and applicable ordering information for Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(13)E3. Feature sets for Cisco Supervisor Engine 2 with MSFC2 for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series and Cisco 7600 Series and Cisco Supervisor Engine 1A with MSFC or MSFC2 for the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series are listed below. Cisco IOS Software runs on the Distributed Forwarding Card (DFC) to provide distributed Cisco Express Forwarding support. This image is bundled as part of the Cisco Catalyst 6000 [6500?] Series and Cisco 7600 Series Supervisor Engine 2/MSFC2 Cisco IOS image and is not released separately.

Caution: Always back up the switch configuration file to a Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server or Flash device before upgrading or downgrading the switch software to avoid losing all or part of the configuration stored in nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM). When downgrading switch software, the configuration will be lost.
