Pre-owned, used and refurbished Cisco WS-X6066-SLB-APC

The Cisco Catalyst 6000 Content Switching Module, or WS-X6066-SLB-APC, is the content switching module compatible with Supervisor Engine 1A or Supervisor Engine 2 and is not fabric enabled and the CSM memory is not configurable. The WS-X6066-SLB-APC, whether purchased new or used, enhances performance in the Supervisor Engine, but before using the Catalyst 6500 Series CSM, customers must have a Supervisor Engine 1A or a Supervisor Engine 2 with a Multilayer Switch Feature Card (MSFC1 or MSFC2), a Policy Feature Card (PFC), and any module with ports to connect server and client networks. The PFC is required for the VLAN access control list (VACL) capture functionality.

The Cisco WS-X6066-SLB-APC available from MULTI-LINK (MLCP) isn't the only component in our extensive switch inventory. We maintain a diverse collection of current and previous generation equipment including modular and fixed-configuration switches, interface cards, and other insert components.
