Re: how to update catalyst6509 to cisco7609

1. The 6509 by itself does not support MPLS - specifically, it cannot

do MPLS label imposition and deposition.

2. To support MPLS, you need an OSM. As soon as you insert an

OSM, your 6509 magically becomes a 7609 :-) thus showing that

the 6509/7609 difference is mostly a matter of marketing.

The least expensive OSM you can get is the OSM-4GE-WAN-GBIC

4 port Gigabit WAN OSM. A 6509 with SUP2/MSFC2/PFC2 and this

OSM can indeed support MPLS.
