Cisco 6800 series switch

Do anyone know the 6800 provide 9 or 10 slots? I just find it only has 6807 chassis (7 slots only).

The largest 6800 series is the 6807.

As alluded to in Sandeep's reply, you can use the 6800ia. It expands the parent 6807 by essentially adding a remote 48-port line card. Also, 6800ia modules can be stacked (up to 3 in a stack for now).

And to add to Marvin's post, there are limits to have many 6800ia you can connect, both in total and as stacks.  I forget the number of stacks, but I believe the total 6800ia supported are 21 (for example, 7 stacks of 3).  This would provide you 1,008 gig ports.
