Cat 6509 - Sup 720-3B Slots

We have a Cat 6509 with Sup1a and a Sup1a redundancy card. This is going to be replaced by Sup 720-3B.

Pls can you tell me into which slots they should fit into. In addition, any information on Fan trays. Do we need to buy new ones and if so, what type?

The url to the above information will be very much appreciated.

Hi,

The sup720s need to be inserted into slots 5 and 6 on the 6509. Also, yes, you will need an upgraded high-speed fan tray as well as minimum 2500 watt power supplies.

The following URL has more info:

Also if you plan on getting any new cards that take advantage of the sup720 capabilities such as POE you also may need new power supplies . I assume you will otherwise you really aren't taking advantage of the 720's processing capabilities .
