Unanswered Question

Hi all,

I wonder what's the big difference between RSP-720 and SUP-720. both have almost the same feature set, performance and also same price. Anyone can explain in detail?

This can also be applied to difference between 6500 and 7600 and narrow difference between routers and switches these days.

I have this problem too.

There are tons of differences between the RSP and the SUP 720.


Look @ the " Hardware Enhancements over Supervisor Engine 720" section

The 6500 and 7600 are diverging in terms of software release support on 12.2(33)SX* for 6500 and 12.2(33)SR* for 7600 which means the feature sets will be diametrically opposite.

E.g. VSS on Cat6k's is not available on 7600's
