Hi Ivan,

Cisco is extending the overall scale, performance, and capabilities of the venerable Cisco Catalyst 6000 product family with the introduction of the new Cisco Catalyst 6800 Series. The new Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL chassis provides extremely high levels...

The new Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL chassis can deliver up to 11.4 Tbps of total system capacity, with up to 880 Gbps of per-slot bandwidth. In a VSS configuration, this level of support translates to a system capacity of up to 22.8 Tbps.

The new Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL chassis is optimized for high-density 10, 40, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet, also providing superior customer inv

Hi Inayath,

Im looking for the forwarding performance in Mpps. I found the info of the 6500 models (http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/switches/catalyst-6500-series-switches/models-comparison.html) but cant find it for the 6800.

Hi Ivan,

Hi Ivan,

Today 6807 can't do more than 720 mpps.
To reach this performance we have to install five C6800-32 modules and two Sup2t.
In this case total performance will be  5 х 120 mpps + 2 х 60 mpps = 720 mpps.

Of course, if Cisco were to provide a newer sup model for the 6807, PPS would likley increase some more.  The chassis has capacity not yet maxed by what can be installed into it.

If I remember correctly, the 6807 only supports sup2Ts, and if I also remember correctly, they offer 60  Mpps.  I don't know whether a second sup2T adds to chassis PPS (as I believe a VS-S720 does).

Additionally, line cards with DFCs provide additional PPS - I think the DFC4 offers up to 60 Mpps.

(Also, in fabric mode, the prior PPS might be independent of packet size.)
