MPLS on 6500 support

Does CatOS 8.5 with MSFC IOS 12.2(18)SXF support hardware-accelerated MPLS and EoMPLS, or only VRF Lite is suported? Release Notes for MSFC 12.2(18)SXF (Hybrid) say it is supported, but I'm really not sure. Next, if it is supported, does Native IOS have any advantages over Hybrid mode regarding MPLS?

Re: MPLS on 6500 support

Hi you require the SUP7203BXL for any sane hardware forwarding for MPLS. Also and i am not 100% sure here but i would have to lean towards the no its not supported for CATOS. Even if you can use the commands it doesnt make any sense to me to use CATOS for MPLS/PE functions.
