I agree with Leo. If you have a lots of these cards, you maybe able to negotiate a deal with Cisco, but if you are talking about a few of these then you most likely have to pay the full price. If you are planning to use the 6800 series chassis, all the cards that work with Sup-2T will also work in 6807 chassis including Sup-2T.
They had pretty good deal this year at Cisco Live for the 6800 series chassis.
They look decent, and we don't mind buying them, but only when we want to.
I feel like we're being forced to give up the 6708 linecards that we just bought 4 years ago, just because the Sup 2T's don't support them.
We have the same problem w/ our wireless infrastructure.
We've got an army of WiSM1's, and 1130 WAP's, which we do have a plan to replace w/ WiSM2/Flex7500, and 2602 WAP's.
However, we also have campuses that need to purchase new AP's now, before we can upgrade all the WiSM1's.
We don't want to purchase 1140's because they'll be EoX'd, if not already.
However, we can't purchase 2602's because their minimal requirement is 7.2, which the WiSM1's don't support.
Then again w/ the NAC platform...we just refreshed all of our campuses w/ NAC3310 appliances a few years ago, and only to be told they won't support ISE. (minimum is NAC3315)
I apologize for ranting in this forum, but am just frustrated that Cisco's upgrade path doesn't allign w/ ours.
It just seems we're in a constant cycle of spending a lot of money for equipment, that can't last over 5 years.
I suppose if we use them until the last day of support then it can be used for longer period, but we all know the fleet management doesn't work that way...can't replace over 100 campuses overnight w/ new equipment.
