Innovation for Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches
The world's leading network infrastructure software, Cisco IOS Software, delivers transparent integration of technology innovations, business-critical services, and valuable hardware support.
Cisco IOS Software Release 15 provides a more consistent user experience, through the evolution of the new Cisco software development model. This model accelerates sharing of features and applications, improves feature consistency across major releases, and helps enable Borderless Network Services.
Cisco IOS Software Release 15.0SY supports Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches running Supervisor Engine 2T in enterprise campus distribution and core applications. It is the first instantiation of the Release 15 family specifically designed for this purpose.
Release 15.0SY inherits hardware-enabled services from Release 12.2(50)SY, including:
- Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
- Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE)
- Bidirectional Protocol Independent Multicast
In addition, Release 15.0SY inherits software features, including Nonstop Forwarding with Stateful Switchover (NSF/SSO). This combination of hardware and software features makes the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series the most comprehensive switching platform available today.
