Product Overview

Network traffic has grown exponentially over the last several years, and this trend is expected to continue into the foreseeable future. By 2018, there will be 20+ billion networked devices, up from 10 billion in 2011. Business IP traffic is expected to reach 13.1 exabytes per month in 2016[1]. Networks must be capable of scaling well beyond the needs of today to deal with the traffic of tomorrow while at the same time providing investment protection.

The Cisco® Catalyst® 6840-X Series Switch (Figure 1) is a 2RU fixed backbone switch in the Cisco Catalyst 6800 family. The 6840-X is based on the Cisco Catalyst 6800, with more than 3000 features and maturity of software code. The Cisco Catalyst 6840-X is the smallest Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) aggregator or Instant Access controller in the Cisco 6800 Catalyst Family. The 6840-X offers the following four SKUs:

     16 and 32 ports of 10G SFP/SFP+

     24 and 40 ports of 10G SFP/SFP+ with 2 Native uplink ports of 40G QSFP

This 10G/40G-ready platform is ideal for those who want to introduce premium 10G services in small or midsize campus backbones. This unique platform offers 10G port density, full IPv4/IPv6 and MPLS/VPLS functionality with large table sizes (up to 256,000 FIB entries), and more than 15 years of best-in-class features. With a full suite of L2/L3, virtualization, security, multicast, IPv6, application visibility, smart operations, and rich media services, the Cisco Catalyst 6840-X delivers unprecedented capabilities on day one. This platform also runs on the same architecture as the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Supervisor Engine 2T and therefore offers stability with proven operating system software.

The Cisco Catalyst 6840-X Series chassis offers integrated resiliency by providing 1+1 power supply redundancy, single removable fan-tray with four redundant fans, and support for Virtual Switching System (VSS), thereby limiting network downtime, and makes sure of workforce productivity, customer satisfaction, and profitability.

Cisco Catalyst 6840-X Product Details

The Cisco Catalyst 6840-X provides flexibility to build desired port density through four chassis versions. The four models come with a minimum of fixed 16x10G ports and up to 40x10G ports using SFP/SFP+. Two of the models come with 2x40G uplink ports with native QSFP. Table 1 outlines the 6840-X models and their capabilities.

Cisco Catalyst 6840-X Series Chassis with All Four SKUs

The Cisco Catalyst 6840-X Series offers premium Campus Backbone features and benefits, including:

     Platform scalability: The platform supports up to 960Gbps of switching capacity, which doubles up to 1.92Tbps with VSS technology.

     Security: Support for Cisco TrustSec® to provide IEEE 802.1AE MACsec encryption and role-based ACL, CoPP to prevent DoS attacks, and Cisco ISE to safeguard and manage end-to-end security for the enterprise.

     Virtualization: Comprehensive suite of virtualization features, including L2/L3 VPN, full MPLS, EVN, VRF-aware applications for NAT Netflow, GRE for v4/v6, L2 extensions with VPLS, and so on to segment different user groups and serve unique security/QoS policy requirements of each of these diverse user groups.

     Application visibility and control (AVC): Supports enhanced application monitoring such as Flexible and Sampled NetFlow and advanced priority queuing capabilities such as Hierarchical QoS.

     Smart operations: The Cisco Catalyst 6840-X supports Cisco Catalyst Instant Access*, which allows an Instant Access client to act as a remote line card of the Cisco Catalyst 6840-X, as well as Smart Install Director, which provides zero-touch deployment of access switches.

     High availability: Two Cisco Catalyst 6840-X Series Switches can be combined into a VSS. In addition to high availability VSS, provides ease of operation by providing a single point of management, eliminating the need for First Hop Routing Protocol (FHRP) and removing the reliance on Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) for link failure restoration.
