Long Description

Cisco Catalyst 6500, 7600 Series - Supervisor Engine 720 Fabric MSFC3 PFC3B. The WS-SUP720-3B supports 512MB of DRAM for the route processor and 512 MB for the switch processor, and upgradeable to 1GB. It comes with two Gigabit Ethernet Uplink Ports, one Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP), one selectable SFP or 10/100/100 RJ-4, and one RS-232 Console Port.

The Cisco 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 720 WS-SUP720-3B has the traditional IP forwarding, Layer 2 and Layer 3 Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPNs, Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS) with quality of service (QoS) and security features.The Cisco Catalyst 6500/Cisco 7600 Series Supervisor Engine 720 is a group of Supervisor Engine(s) designed to deliver buildable operation and impressive group of IP (Internet Protocol) traits in equipment. The Cisco WS-SUP720-3B’s hardware-based enhanced features enables applications such as traditional IP forwarding, Layer 2 and Layer 3 Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPNs, Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS) with quality of service (QoS) and security benefits. The Supervisor engine 720 integrates a high operation 720 Gbps crossbar switch fabric with a forwarding engine in a single module, distributing 40 Gbps of switching capacity per slot (enabling 4-port 10GE and 48-port 10/100/1000 density line cards). With hardware-enabled forwarding for IPv4, IPv6 and MPLS, the system operation is capable of 400 Mpps for IPv4, 200 Mpps for IPv6 traffic, with abilities and 1024 VRFs each populated with up to 700 routes/VRF for MPLS.

The Cisco Supervisor Engine 720 offers a rich set of security features. System security is compressed with support for features such as Port Security, CPU rate limiting, Multi-Path uRPF and a long list 802.1x extension. Broad feature support such as QoS mechanisms, hardware-based generic-routing-encapsulation (GRE) tunneling, and access control lists (ACLs) allow customers to build scalable, impressive campus networks, metropolitan (metro) aggregation, and various WAN edge networks. With improved security, rich QoS and buildable operation for Gigabit and 10gigabit. The Cisco WS-SUP720-3B is perfect for enterprise core, distribution, and datacenters.


Key Benifits & Features

The WS-SUP720-3B’s integrated fabric distributes scalable-operation, user-based rate limiting enforcing up to 64 policy rates, rate limiting on per-flow or redundant basis, security developments and wire-rate MPLS and IPv6 hardware support. For completeness the Cisco 6500 Series Virtual Switching Supervisor engine 720 has 10GE uplinks. The Cisco WS-SUP720-3B is chassis compatible with Cisco 6503, 6503-E, 6404-E, 6506, 6506-E, 6509, 6509-E, 6509-NEB, 6509-NEB-A, 6513, 7603, 7606, OSR-7609, 7609, and 7613. The Supervisor Engine 720 has MAC ACL’s Featuring per-Port/ per VLAN Granularity. ACE Counters, port security, IEE 802.1x & 802.1x extensions, VLAN and router ACLs, port ACLs, and private VLANs. Security ACL entries are 32 K and reflective ACLs are 128 K. The uRPF check in hardware has up to 6 paths, and there is 10 special case rate limiters plus control plane policing. MPLS features include label imposition/ disposition (MPLS-PE), swapping (MPLS-P), label distribution protocol (LDP), tag distribution protocol (TDP), MPLS VPN, VRF lite, QoS mechanisms using experimental (EXP) bits, MPLS-RSVP-TE, MPLS differentiated services (DiffServ), aware traffic engineering (MPLS-DS-TE), MPLS tracerouter, and EoMPLS. In conclusion the Cisco WS-SUP720-3B is ideal for deployment in the distribution and central data center, Supervisor engine 720 supports all Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series interface module classes (Classic, CEF256, dCEF256, and CEF720) providing hardware support for MPLS and IPv6. Supported in both IOS and hybrid (IOS on RP and CatOS on SP) the Supervisor engine 720 offers substantial advances in operation (up to 400 Mpps) with dCEF, maximum bandwidth of 720 Gbps, DRAM of up to 1GB, integrated switch fabric.
