Cisco Catalyst 6513 Chassis and Supervisor engine Overview

Cisco Catalyst 6513 Chassis and Supervisor engine Overview

Supervisor 720

720-Gbps crossbar fabric
§PFC3A/B/BXL forwarding engine daughter card
§Integrated RP/SP CPUs on MSFC3 daughter card (600MHz MIPS)

  • Supported from Cisco IOS 12.2(14)SX and Catalyst OS 8.1(1)
  •                512/512MB (3A/B) or 1/1GB (3BXL) DRAM
  • Internal RP and SP bootflash (64MB each)
  • Optional 512MB and 1GB CF bootflash upgrade for SP
  •       -WS-CF-UPG-1GB=
  •       -WS-CF-UPG= (512MB)*
  • Dual external compact flash slots
  •      2 x GbE uplink ports—
  •      2 x SFP <or>
  •      1 x SFP and 1 x 10/100/1000

Supervisor 720-10G

720-Gbps crossbar fabric

§PFC3C/CXL forwarding engine daughter card
§Integrated RP/SP CPUs on MSFC3 daughter card

§Supported from Cisco IOS 12.2(33)SXH

§NOT supported with Catalyst OS

§1GB SP / 1GB RP DRAM

Internal RP (64MB) and SP (1GB) boot devices

§Single external compact flash slot

§Uplink ports:

2 x 10GE (X2)

2 x SFP

1 x 10/100/1000

§All uplink ports are available in a redundant Supervisor configuration

§Two USB ports (one console, one device—currently disabled)

Supervisor 32

Classic Supervisor—no fabric, uses 16-Gbps bus only

§PFC3B forwarding engine daughter card

§SP CPU (400MHz Sibyte)

§MSFC2a routing engine

§512MB/512MB DRAM

§Internal CF bootdisk (256MB) and MSFC2A bootflash (64MB)

§External CF slot

§Uplink options:

8 SFP + 1 10/100/1000

2 10GE + 1 10/100/10002

Supported from Cisco IOS 12.2(18)SXF and Catalyst OS 8.4(1)/12.2(17)SXB7

Supervisor 32 + PISA

Same Bus, SP and PFC3B characteristics as other Supervisor 32

§Improved Route Processor (750Mhz)

§1GB RP DRAM by default

§PISA CF bootdisk (256MB)

§Deep and Stateful Packet Inspection

§Provides acceleration for NBAR (QoS) and FPM (security) For L3 IPv4 unicast packets at up to 2-Gbps

§Requires IOS 12.2(18)ZY—No support for Software Modularity

§Uplink options:

8 SFP + 1 10/100/1000

-or-

2 10GE + 1 10/100/1000

Supervisor Chassis Requirements

Supervisor 720 (all variants) and

Supervisor 32 (all variants) require:

Catalyst 6500 or 6500-E chassis

High speed fan tray (FAN2/E-FAN)

E-Fan cannot be used in non-E Chassis

Fan2 cannot be used in E-Series

2500W power supply (AC or DC) or greater

3000W supply for new AC deployments since 2500W AC is End-of-Sale

Specific chassis slots:

Slot 1 or 2 in 3/4 slot

Slot 5 or 6 in 6/9 slot

Slot 7 or 8 in 13 slot

Supervisor 720 Switch Fabric

720-Gbps crossbar switch fabric provides

Multiple conflict-free paths between

switching modules

§Integrated on Supervisor 720 baseboard

§Fabric channels run at up to

20-Gbps full duplex

20-Gbps in/20-Gbps out per channel

§Works with all fabric-capable modules

Fabric channels auto-sync speed onper-slot basis (8-Gbps or 20-Gbps)

§Two fabric channels per slot in 6503/6504/6506/6509

§In 6513:

One fabric channel slots 18

Two fabric channels slots 913

Dual-fabric channel‖ modules not supported in slots

18 of 6513

Policy Feature Card 3

Mandatory daughter card for supervisor engine

§Provides the key components enabling high-performance hardware packet processing

§Supervisor 32 (all variants) supports PFC3B

§Supervisor 720 supports:

· PFC3A

· PFC3B

· PFC3BXL

§Supervisor 720-10G supports:

· PFC3C

· PFC3CXL

Key Hardware-Enabled Features:
