I have a deployment coming up with a 6513 with FWSM and dual Sup720s.
A customer just asked if the 6513 supports as many dual fabric slots as the 6509. He said the 6509 supports all 9 slots for dual fabric but the 6513 only supports 6 slots.
First, is this true? And second, why does it matter?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
dual fabric provides 40G backplane connection vs 20G backplane connection.
It's also a physical limitation, if you buy a dual fabric module, you can't insert it on a single fabric slot.
