The main thing is the backplane.


The 6500 Series support up to 720Gbps backplane speed. However, that number is full-duplex which in reality is 360Gbps.


Therefore, 6509 will support 9 modules with dual fabric connection to the backplane. Dual connection is 40Gbps * 9 = 360Gbps.


Then it comes the 6513. You have the same limitation of 360Gbps and you have 4 additional modules to contend with. Then it was decided to allocated 5 modules (9-13) with dual fabric (40Gbps) and 8 modules (1-10) with single fabric (20Gbps).
