Cisco Catalyst 6509-E 9-Slot Ethernet Switch

Industry-leading Performance and Advanced Feature Integration
The 6509-E Ethernet Switch is part of the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series that deliver up to 2 terabits per second of system bandwidth capacity and 80 Gbps of per-slot bandwidth. In a system configured for VSS, this translates to a system capacity of 4 Tbps. The Cisco Catalyst 6500 Enhanced Series Chassis will be capable of delivering up to 180 Gbps of per-slot bandwidth with a system capacity of up to 4 terabits per second. A system configured for VSS will be capable of delivering up to 8 Tbps of system bandwidth.

Advanced Switching for Converged Networks
The 9-slot Cisco Catalyst 6509-E Switch provides high port densities that are ideal for many wiring closet, distribution, and core network as well as data center deployments. The Cisco Catalyst 6509-E supports Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series end-to-end operational consistency benefits:

  • 9 slots, 14 RU
  • 10/100/1000, 1G, 10G, 40G ports
  • Forwarding capacity up to 510 Mpps

Supports all Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series modules, including:

  • Supervisor engines
  • Fast Ethernet modules (with IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet [PoE])
  • Gigabit Ethernet modules (with IEEE 802.3af PoE)
  • 10 Gigabit Ethernet modules
  • Flex WAN modules
  • Shared Port Adapters/SPA Interface Processors
  • Multi-Gigabit services modules (wireless, network analysis, and security)

The Cisco Catalyst 6509-E supports both Cisco Catalyst OS and Cisco IOS Software. It also supports up to a 6000W power supply, thus providing the ability to support large numbers of IEEE 802.3af PoE devices.

The Cisco Catalyst 6509-E provides maximum uptime with redundancy and rapid (1 to 3 seconds) stateful failover across supervisor engines. It supports modular Cisco IOS Software to minimize unplanned downtime through self-healing processes and simplifies software changes through subsystem in-service software upgrades.
