6509 and fabric enabled modules

Hi everybody.

We have a 6509 switch witch Sup2, and NO fabric modules (SFM).

We want to insall a module with many GBIC, so I've thought that WS-X6516A-GBIC is a good choice.... but:

- this module work without SFM?

Obviously, if it work, it doesn't reach fabric performarces, but this isn't a problem.

Thank

Daniele

Hi Daniele

Yes this module will work without an Switch fabric module. It will use the 32Gb shared bus connection if there is no SFM module in your switch.
