The c7600 is considered a router, yet it has what seems like the exact same chassis as the c6500, which is considered a L3 switch. Why is one a switch and the other a router when they share all the same modules and have the same port density? Or do they?
What are the most prominent qualitative differences between the 7600 and the 6500 series devices?
What about differences in terms of their use and deployment?
If I were tackling a 7600 for the first time, what should I know about it that I may not know if I have never worked with one before?
