I'm trying to see if there's a performance difference between 6509-E and 6509-V-E.
I know the 6509-V-E is a vertical chassis, but other than that, is there a performance difference? The datasheet says 80gbps per slot, but I thought 6509-E was 40gbps per slot. I tried doing a chat with Cisco via their website this morning and he wasn't able to get me an answer to this.
Would the 6509-V-E support all the same modules as the 6509-E?
Modules I'd be looking at: 6748 (gig copper), WISM, 16-port 10g ports, Sup720-10g-3c
The 6509-V-E chassis is ready for the new supervisor the sup2T which supports up to 80gb per slot. The 6509-E will only support 40gb per slot, but will support all of the line cards you have listed, as will the 6509-V-E chassis as well.
