    Is CAT6509 a router or an L3 switch?
    If it is an L3 switch/router, what is its equivalent router/L3 switch
    available from Cisco?
    I basically want to compare the Price details here.

    Also, I assume CAT6509 is a high-end router/L3 switch. What are the
    low-end alternatives here?

    7609 but it is more expensive. The 6509 pb is the bay. you must have
    more place on the side to avoid temp pb.

    Its a layer 3 switch, this means for all intensive purposes it is both. 6509 is a Cisco switch.

  5. The difference kinda blurs lately doesn't it?
    The Cisco router pushed is the 7609, which is basicly the same thing
    as a 6509 with a ever-so-slightly different chassis.
    The 450x with higher level Sup engine is very nice. Can't do as much
    of course, but much lower cost. The entry level L3 switches are the
    3xxx line. It really depends alot on what features you need to say
    what you can use.
