BFD Support on 6500 / high-end switch

Hello all,

I'm putting together an expansion for a customers network and need a high density 10/100/1000 switch-type aggregation with link agg etc and basic OSPF routing.

The problem is that the GE backhaul links are over a transmission network that does not support link-loss forwarding and so need to run BFD across it. Looking at the data sheets, the 6500 is ideal for port density/carrier class redundancy but appears the sup module does not support BFD. Is this true? Any other options or do I need to cost in a 76xx chassis with the required 65xx switch blades?

Cheers,

Craig.

hello Craig,

Checking cisco feature navigator for:

BIDIRECTIONAL FORWARDING DETECTION

I could see it available for plataform CAT6000, is this your case?

HTH,
