Hi Ramlal,

Only thing that comes to my mid is 6509-E switch with sup 720.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6777/index.html

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps2797/ps5138/index.html

When you open the link above on left hand side down you will see data sheet for different line cards, just click to get more details about fifferemt line card module supported.

Check the data sheet for sup 720

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/switches/ps5718/ps708/product_data_sheet09186a0080159856_ps2797_Products_Data_Sheet.html

Data sheet for 10/100/100 ethernet modules

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/switches/ps5718/ps708/product_data_sheet0900aecd8017376e_ps2797_Products_Data_Sheet.html

But if budget is a concern you can think of 4500 E series chassis

Hi Ramlal,

What you have posted are features and are not very much hardware dependent. Features are mostly software dependent and can be find in different feature set.

Cat6k is the top end model Cisco modular switch and will provide you most of the functionality you have posted. Cat4k also provide you basically most of the features you have posted depending on what hardware you have and if it supports le features.

Cat6k sup 720 with MSFC 3 will work nice and you can also go through the link I posted in my earlier post to find more details on hardware modules.
