Sup2 vs Sup2T

Hi,

Have a look at this Q&A:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/modules/ps2797/ps11878/qa_c67-648478.html

The Sup 2T is faster and offers increased capacity. Unlink the Sup2T the Sup 2 does not support the newer technologies such as the ASA blade and new 40 Gbps blades.

Don't forget to rate all posts that are helpful.

Sup2 vs Sup2T

Hi,

Thanks Sean. I did a further research and found that Sup2 is now end of sale and also going to be end of support in feb, 2012. It was replaces by SUP 720. But according to cisco some version of sup 720 are also being replaced by sup720 xl and also by supervisor engine sup 2T.

Thats where the birth of Sup 2T came.

Basically, the sup720 is a sup2 with integrated SFM; there are some other minor improvements.

The sup2T biggest enhancement is the 2TB fabric vs. 720GB fabric, but it offers other improvements such as VSS support too.
