Product Overview

The Cisco Catalyst® 6500 Series Switches offer a variety of 10 Gigabit Ethernet modules to serve different needs in the campus and data center for enterprise, commercial, and service provider customers: the Cisco Catalyst 6500 16-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Copper Module, 16-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Module, 8-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Module, and 4-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Module. The copper module supports RJ-45 connectors and provides operational distance of up to 100m over Category 6, 6A, and 7 type cabling. The fiber modules support pluggable optics and provide operational distances of up to 80 km over single-mode fiber and 300m over multimode fiber.

16-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Copper Module

The 16-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet copper module (Figure 1) provides up to 130 10 Gigabit Ethernet copper ports in a single Cisco Catalyst 6509 Switch chassis and 260 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a Cisco Catalyst 6500 Virtual Switching System (VSS) 1440 and is primarily designed for data center access with a secondary use case for switch-to-switch connectivity. It consists of 4 port groups of 4 ports each. Users can operate each port group in either oversubscription mode (2 to 4 ports used per port group) or performance mode (1 port used per port group), providing the flexibility to use some ports for connection to servers and other ports for interconnection of switches. In performance mode, up to 4 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports can be used to create a virtual switch link in a VSS.[1]

16-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Module

The 16-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber module (Figure 2) provides up to 130 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a single Cisco Catalyst 6509 chassis and 260 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a VSS and is designed for LAN campus aggregation and data center access, where fanout and port density are very important. It consists of 4 port groups of 4 ports each. Users can operate each port group in either oversubscription mode (2 to 4 ports used per port group) or performance mode (1 port used per port group), providing the flexibility to use some ports for connection to servers in performance mode and others for uplinks to wiring closets in oversubscription mode. In performance mode, up to 4 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports can be used to create a virtual switch link in a VSS.[2] In addition, the 16-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet module has reduced power consumption. It uses half the power per port of the 8-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet module, providing substantial power savings to the customer.

Figure 2. Cisco Catalyst 6500 16-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Module

8-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Module

The 8-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber module (Figure 3) provides up to 66 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a single Cisco Catalyst 6509 chassis and 132 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a VSS. It supports 64 Gbps of local switching, making it ideal for deployment in the core or aggregation layer of LAN campuses and data centers. All 8 ports can be used to create a virtual switch link in a VSS.

4-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Module

The 4-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber module (Figure 4) has no oversubcription and is designed for deployments in which line rate is important. It provides up to 34 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a single Cisco Catalyst 6509 chassis and 68 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a VSS.

Module Interoperability

All four modules are interoperable with the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Virtual Switching Supervisor Engine 720 with 10GE uplinks and the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 720 and provide 40-Gbps connection to the switch fabric. Building on the award-winning Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series, these 10 Gigabit Ethernet modules are backward compatible with all existing Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series line cards and services modules, enabling enterprises and service providers to offer new Layer 2 through 7 services and network capabilities to increase revenue and user productivity without the need for major equipment upgrades.

The Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series 10 Gigabit Ethernet modules are designed for deployment in the distribution and core of the campus and data center for traffic aggregation, or for interbuilding, points of presence (POPs), WAN edge, and metropolitan area network (MAN) connections. These modules support IEEE 802.3ad link aggregation and Cisco® distributed EtherChannel technology for fault-tolerant connectivity and bandwidth scalability of up to 80 Gbps per EtherChannel connection using any 8 ports in the same chassis. In addition, they support hardware-based multicast replication, quality of service (QoS), access control lists (ACLs), jumbo frames, and low latency to enable secure and predictable performance for bandwidth-intensive applications.

Applications

16-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet copper module: Data center access and switch-to-switch connectivity

16-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber module: LAN campus and data center distribution and data center access, where fanout and port density are important

8-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber module: Data center core and distribution, LAN campus core and distribution, and service providers

4-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber module: Core, interbuilding connections, POPs, WAN edge, and MAN connections, where no oversubscription and medium to low 10 Gigabit Ethernet density is required

[1] Cisco Catalyst 6500 16-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Copper Module support in a VSS will be introduced in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(33)SXI5. Virtual switch link support on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 16-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Copper Module will also be introduced in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(33)SXI5.
[2] Cisco Catalyst 6500 16-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Module support in a VSS is available in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(33)SXH2. Virtual switch link support on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 16-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber module will be available in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(33)SXI.
[3] To calculate the exact distances that your module will support before installation, see optical specifications in the XENPAK and X2 data sheets. The exact distance supported varies according to the number of splices and connectors in a single-mode fiber strand.
[4] According to the IEEE 802.3ae standard, requires 5 dB 1550 nm fixed loss attenuator for <20 km; a 5 dB fixed loss attenuator is available as a spare (part number WS-X6K-5DB-ATT=).
[5] To comply with EMI, version -02 or later of SR, LR, ER, LX4, and CX4 X2 optics are required for WS-X6708-10G-3C and WS-X6708-10G-3CXL; and version -02 or later of SR and CX4, version -03 or later of ER, and version -04 or later of LR and LX4 X2 optics are required for WS-X6716-10G-3C and WS-X6716-10G-3CXL. This restriction does not apply to LRM. See release the notes or external Q&A for more details.
[6] Any passive multiplexer and demultiplexer can be used with the DWDM XENPAKs. The Cisco ONS 15216 Flexlayer filters are one of the options.
