Pre-Owned, Used And Refurbished Cisco WS-C6500-SFM

The WS-C6500-SFM is a switch fabric module for the Catalyst 6500 Series switches by Cisco. The WS-C6500-SFM, in combination with the Supervisor Engine 2, delivers an increase in available system bandwidth from the existing 32 Gbps to 256 Gbps. SFM is not supported on Supervisor Engine I-based systems. The Switch Fabric Module enables an architecture that allows 30 million packets per second (Mpps) of Cisco Express Forwarding-based central forwarding performance on Supervisor Engine 2 and up to 210 Mpps of distributed forwarding performance. The Distributed Feature Daughter Card (WS-F6K-DFC) is required to be installed on the line cards to deliver up to 210 Mpps of distributed forwarding.
