Pre-Owned, Used And Refurbished Cisco WS-SUP720

Cisco's WS-SUP720, also known as the Cisco Catalyst Supervisor Engine 720, is a retired control processor once manufactured by industry-leader Cisco Systems. A plug-in module, the WS-SUP720 is a member of the Cisco Catalyst supervisor engines created to deliver scalable performance and enhanced IP features in its hardware. The feature set allows for the deployment of applications including Layer 2 and 3 Multiprotocol Label Switching VPNs, traditional IP forwarding, security features and more. The WS-SUP720 is able to integrate high-performance 720 Gbps crossbar switch fabric with a forwarding engine all in a single module. The product delivers, per slot, 40 Gbps of switching capacity. Although Cisco no longer manufactures or warranties this product, here at MULTI-LINK Communications Products (MLCP), we do. The WS-SUP720 is one of the many Cisco Catalyst products in our inventory and can be shipped quickly with one of our reliable global distributors.

Here at MLCP, we're proud of our reputation of providing discounted refurbished equipment to our customers affordably and quickly. But what we're most proud of is that the hardware we sell is of the highest possible quality.
