SPA-5X1GE-V2 Layer2 Features???

Hi Cisco Peeps.

I really thought SPA card is a WAN card and NOT a LAN-based card.

I came across the document below.

And wondering if SPA-5GE-V2 can do also Etherchannel trunks (L2 and L3)?

And any other layer 2 features or act as a layer2 access port/trunk?

SPA-5X1GE-V2 Layer2 Features???

We'll use it in 7606 RSP720, SRD6 IOS.

It's a LAN Based card but different from 6148 or 65xx series cards, right?

SPA-5xGE supports full L3 QOS compared to other lan-based cards....

Did I missed anything?

Does this mean, I can configure SPA GE port as a 802.1q trunk, configure interface vlan, and allow that vlan on the trunk. Then configure QOS policy on the interface vlan as if it's the SPA sub-inteface?

Typically on a 6148 card, when you configure interface vlan service-policy, only policing is accepted. No queuing supported. This is the reason I am using a SPA card interface.

hi,

for me the price talks, i mean if you compare the price of spa interface, with the other wan interface then it make sense that spa doesnt have some fully feature layer 3 interface.

about that, perhaps you may want to research further on

SPA-5X1GE-V2 Layer2 Features???

The docs says:

"EtherChannel  is only supported on the 10-Port Gigabit Ethernet SPA and the 1-Port  10-Gigabit Ethernet SPA on the Cisco 7600 SIP-600. EtherChannel is not  supported on the Cisco 7600 SIP-400 or on a Fast Ethernet SPA on the  Cisco 7600 SIP-200."

It didnt mention about SPA 5xGE on a SIP600 (7600).

I am basically planning to implement L3 etherchannel with this SPA with multiple POrtchannel sub-interface (VRF-lite).

Then the other end is a 3750X L2 switch.

hi,

im agree with you, after spending some time researching on the document, i think its about time you contacting one of cisco engineer to confirm this. if you cant open a TAC case, perhaps you can email to web-help@cisco.com, they can engage you to the right team for answering this.

regards,
