PRODUCT OVERVIEW The Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series provides the broadest selection of 10- and 100-Mbps media, densities, interoperability, and chassis deployment options (refer to Table 1). The 100BASE-X, 100BASE-FX, and 10BASE-FL modules provide another alternative for the access and distribution layer and metropolitan (metro) access deployments.
High-density fiber-based 10- and 100-Mbps Ethernet modules offer enterprises and military operations the ability to deploy fiber to the desktop to maximize security of their network. The Cisco Catalyst 6500 100BASE-X and 100BASE-FX modules also can be deployed in areas where customers need long-distance (greater than 550m and up to 2 km) connection over existing multimode fiber where Gigabit Ethernet is not an option.
Distributed forwarding upgrade—None; Classic interface modules cannot be upgraded for distributed forwarding Slot requirements—Can occupy any slot in any Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series chassis. Maximum port density per chassis—up to 576 ports per Cisco Catalyst 6513 chassis, and up to 384 ports per Cisco Catalyst 6509 chassis. Note: No inline power support for voice is available for 100BASE-X, 100BASE-FX, and 10BASE-FL fiber modules.
Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Fiber-Based CEF256 100BASE-FX Ethernet Modules Designed for small campus distribution and core layers and for data-center and Web-hosting applications, Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series CEF256 100BASE-FX Ethernet fiber-optic interface modules provide line-rate forwarding with the following operational advantages and characteristics: Forwarding architecture—Use the central CEF engine located on the supervisor engine...
Supervisor Engine 2/MFSC2 and a Switch Fabric Module Slot requirements—Can occupy any slot in any Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series chassis. Maximum port density per chassis—up to 288 ports per Cisco Catalyst 6513 chassis, and up to 192 ports per Cisco Catalyst 6509 chassis. Note: No inline power support for voice is available for 100BASE-FX fiber modules.
