cat 6500 switches

Hi all

With Cat 6500 switches, do they run the normal IOS ?

Do they have a startup wizard for the config?

Are the blades in them hot swappable?

Are the supervisor modules both in use or are they active standby?

cheers

Re: cat 6500 switches

Many thanks for your reply

are there any other things that are very much different to the other closet switches on this then?

do they have a gui for configuration?

do the modules have 10 gig sfp slots and how many ports are in them?

cheers

>>switches running IOS but not L3 capable would obviously have no routing capability.

do they have a gui for configuration? Not for 6K.

do the modules have 10 gig sfp slots and how many ports are in them? No not SFP, they have 10 Gig but it does not take SFP, they take X2 transceiver.

Re: cat 6500 switches

There are two "types" of IOS codes: Monolythic and Modular.

Regarding the 10GE blades:

WS-X6708-10GE

WS-X6704-10GE

WS-X6716-10GE

Both require SUP720 supervisor cards to work.

Each supervisor card (SUP720 or SUP32) has 2 10GE ports.

Here are some informations you might want to look at:
