Cisco 6500 + Sup1a or Sup2?

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Nicolaj Kamensek, Jan 2, 2007.

  1. Hello all,

    since the price in the used market is very good, we're going to buy a
    Catalyst 6506 or 6509. We are not sure about the Supervisor Engine yet:
    Sup1a or Sup2.
    The switch is going to be a core-switch only, no routing capabilities
    are required. It must be able to handle a couple GBit/s of traffic,
    dot1q VLANs of course, q-in-q would be nice and one or more
    etherchannels(2x 1GBit/s or more) with a very good sharing ratio(50:50
    would be best of course).

    Is the sup1a enough for our needs or shall we go with the sup2(or even

    Thanks in advance & best regards,

  3. We're not gonna buy new hardware, there's lot of good stuff in the used
    market. And I'm pretty sure I will not need the power of a SUP720 so
    still: what's the main difference between SUP1A and SUP2? The
    requirements are pretty low.
