Srinidhi,


There is no license required to enable VSS. You just pay for the IOS license.

Depending on the feature set you need, the list price for IOS is some where between $10000 and $15000.

You do not need to have 2 Sup in each box. When you create VSS, 2 physical boxes become 1 logical entity.

For example, there is only one management IP address and/or loopback IP address for both boxes.


and i need the following modules on it.

1. 48 port 10/100/1000 Rj-45 module

The above module is supported in VSS but not POE

2. 48 port 10/100/1000 single mode fiber module

There is no such thing as 10/100/100 fiber. There is 100 fiber module and also Gig and 10Gig fiber cards.

3. Firewall services module.( is there any seperate license reqd?)

The above module is supported and the license for the amount of context you need is extra

What type of SAN connection? iSCSI or FCOE? If it support IEEE ethernet standard, it should be fine. But make sure both side are matched on the speed.

Srinidhi,



VSS is logical and has nothing to do with the modules fitting into your chassis or you mean the optics don't fit. If you are talking about optics, 10Gig ports mostly use SC connectors and 1Gig ports use LC.

Maybe you just need a patch cord with different type connector on each end. (LC to SC)


Can you clarify?

Reza brings a really good point and I forgot about it totally. As long as you match the SFP type on the 67xx GE line card, all you need is a SC-LC patchcord and you should be set.
