Gigabit Ethernet line cards serve both campus and data center networking requirements in a variety of enterprise, commercial, and service provider environments.

Product Overview

The Cisco® Catalyst® 6807-XL switch offers two new Gigabit Ethernet modules that work with the Catalyst Supervisor Engine 2T/2TXL. The modules also work in Catalyst6500 Series Switches.

The Gigabit Ethernet modules serve campus and data center networking requirements in enterprise, commercial, and service provider environments. They include a 48-port Gigabit Ethernet Copper Module and 48-port Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Module.

The Gigabit Ethernet Copper Module supports RJ-45 connectors. It supports operational distances of up to
100 meters over Category 5, 5E, and 6 Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) copper cabling. The Gigabit Fiber
Module supports pluggable optics and supports operational distances of up to 80 km over single-mode and multimode fiber.

There are four different 1-Gbps modules supported by Supervisor 2T and 2TXL:

48-Port 10/100/1000 Copper Module

Below are a few key details about the fiber and copper line cards:

     Backplane connection: Connects to the switch fabric using dual full-duplex 20-Gbps switch fabric channels (40 Gbps total).

     Chassis/slot support: Can occupy slots 1-2 and 5-7 in C6807-XL chassis. Can occupy any slots in Cisco Catalyst 6503E, 6504E, 6506E, 6509E, and 6509-V-E. Can occupy slots 1-6 and 9-13 in a Cisco Catalyst 6513-E.

     Supervisor engine: Compatible with Supervisor Engine 2T and Supervisor Engine 2TXL.

     Distributed forwarding and performance: Comes equipped with DFC4 or DFC4XL daughter cards, delivering optimal performance up to a sustained 60 Mpps for L2, IPv4 and MPLS forwarding and 30 Mpps for IPv6 forwarding.

* Mode-conditioning patch is required. Using an ordinary patch cord with MMF, 1000BASE-LX/LH SFP/GBICs, and a short link distance (10s of meters) can cause transceiver saturation resulting in an elevated Bit Error Rate (BER). In addition, when using the LX/LH SFP/GBIC with 62.5 micron diameter MMF, you must install a mode-conditioning patch cord between the SFP and the MMF cable on both the transmit and receive ends of the link. The mode-conditioning patch cord is required for link distances greater than 300 m (984 ft).

** 1000BASE-ZX-SFP can reach up to 100 km by using dispersion-shifted SMF or low attenuation SMF; the distance depends on fiber quality, number of splices and connectors.
