Does anyone have any idea when a 48 port 10/100/1000 module will be available for the 6500 series? Therre is already one for to 4000/45000 series. I am a little comfused as to why there is not one for the 6500's.
The 6500 comes standard with a 32GB backplane. If you purchase the X-bar, you can upgrade to a 256GB backplane. Cisco does offer a 16 (or 24?) port 10/100/1000 TX card for the 6500, but even the 1000fx cards that they have that are x-bar compliant only have 16 ports. I'm sure that as the x-bar becomes more popular (read: affordable) there will be a push to create a denser 10/100/1000 card. It isn't necessarily a good business move for Cisco to produce a card that the backplane of their switches aren't capable of pushing the total load on (although Cisco has been known to do this in the past). -Just my 2 cents....
