Could anyone advice me that is there capability dramatic difference between module WS-X6516-GBIC and module WS-X6748-GE-TX? Of cause they are use different adapter, but how about other feature?
The reason I ask, because I current use a critical device on WS-X6516-GBIC, and there is small packet drop on output queue, if I change it to use WS-X6748-GE-TX, if it will improve?
Any comments will be appreciated
Thanks in advance
The WS-X6748-GE-TX will definitely provide better performance over the WS-X6516-GBIC. It has much larger buffer, and QoS support. From the data sheet, the WS-X6748-GE-TX has 1.3MB buffer per port, while the WS-X6516-GBIC has 512KB buffer per port.
Please check out the following data sheets
