I have to install a WS-X6516A-GBIC module in a 6500 switch. Can I configure this GBIC ports to a peed of 10 or 100Mbps? Does the GBIC SX and LX/LH support this speeds too? In the documentation its not very clear.
Re: Support on 10/100/1000Mbps on the WS-X6516-GBIC
The -GBIC module supports Gigabit Ethernet speeds only. With the proper software it can support the WS-G5483 1000BASE-T GBIC, if you need twisted pair connections vs. fiber optic connections; but it is still Gigabit only. Minimum software required for this on the Catalyst 6000/6500 series switches is CatOS 7.2 and/or Cisco IOS Release 12.1(13)E. (The older WS-G5482 1000BASE-T GBIC is not supported in the Catalyst 6000/6500.)
If you want 10/100/1000 in the chassis, the -GE-TX module Don mentioned is the one you need.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
