Details about C6509-E with the modules VS-S720-10G-C,WS-X6708-10G-3C, and WS-X6548-GE-45AF.

We are building C6509-E chassis that will have dual supes with the following modules


Does this already come with the MFSC3/PFC3C


Does this already come with the WS-F6K-AF card

What is the difference between this and the WS-X6148A-GE-45AF line card?


Does this already come with the WS-F6700-DFC3C card


Yes it does. BTW it is VS-S720-10G-3C.


Yes, it does.


Yes it does

When you order using Cisco configuration tool you will see some items that have value of $0 and those are the cards that already come with the sup or module.

for example the below part number comes with SUP-720-VS and has a $0 value

Cisco VS-F6K-MSFC3 Catalyst 6500 Multilayer Switch Feature Card (MSFC) III

Regarding the difference between WS-X6548-GE-45AF and WS-X6148A-GE-45AF, one of the most important differences is the forwarding architecture:

- WS-X6148A-GE-45AF is a classic line card that uses the 32Gb shared bus - WS-X6548-GE-45AF is a CEF256 line card

More differences are the maximum Jumbo frame they support and their port buffer size:

- WS-X6148A-GE-45AF: Jumbo size up to 9216 bytes and 5.5MB of port buffer size per port . - WS-X6548-GE-45AF: Jumbo size up to1518 bytes and 1.4MB of port buffer size per 8 ports.
