Catalyst 6807-XL, Taking Catalyst 6K Up to 880G/Slot

Catalyst 6807-XL Modular Switch, for the Next-generation Campus

Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL Switch, Optimize for 10 Gigabit Campus Services

Want enhance campus backbone services? Yes, with Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL Switches.

This Catalyst 6807-XL modular switch offers higher slot and switching capacity for the services of today and tomorrow, and includes features and operations that are consistent with Catalyst 6500 switches.

It supports existing Supervisor Engine 2T, line cards, and service modules.

The Catalyst 6807-XL is ideally suited for enterprise core and aggregation environments and offers industry-leading Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet.

The platform is also ready to support 40 Gigabit Ethernet.

The Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL is built on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 DNA and runs the same Cisco IOS Software operating system as the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches. At FCS the switch will support all the features supported on the Cisco Catalyst 6500-E Series Switch.

At 10 rack unit, the Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL chassis is smaller than the Cisco Catalyst 6506-E chassis while providing an extra slot. This coupled with support for the Supervisor Engine 6T, Supervisor Engine 2T and its family of line cards means upgrading the campus backbone can be done with simplicity, speed, and full investment protection.

Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL Switch
  • 5 module slots, 2 SUP slots 10 RU
  • Slot capacity of up to 880 Gb per slot
  • Switching capacity up to 11.4 Tb/s
  • Supports ASA, NAM-3, and WiSM2

Features and Capabilities

The Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL supports the following:

● Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 2T (Standard and XL)
● Current Fabric Modules (Cisco Catalyst 6700, Catalyst 6800, and Catalyst 6900 Series)
● Current Service Modules (Cisco Catalyst Network Analysis Module 3 [NAM-3], Wireless Services Module 2 [WiSM-2], and Adaptive Security Appliance Services Module [ASA-SM])
● Future Supervisor Engines
● Future Fabric Modules
● Future Service Modules
● Current (e.g. 15.1SY) Cisco IOS  Software release
● Future (e.g. 16.0SY) Cisco IOS Software releases

The 6807-XL supports the 220Gbps per slot, 2Tbps Sup 2T. In addition to the 4x100G line card, sources expect a 12x40G module for the Catalyst 6807-XL, as well as a 48-port 10G line card.

Height 17.5” (10RU)
Width 16.318”
Depth 18.10”
1 x 9-Fan 4500 RPM High-Efficiency Fan-Tray =>100 CFM/Slot
4 x Viking Power Supplies @ Platinum Power Efficiency = >90%
Other Highlights:
Supports both traditional DBUS/RBUS Bus connectors & 48 (8 per IO slot (40) + 4 Sup-Sup (8)) x 15Ghz SerDes Fabric channels.
Supports both traditional Bus-based EOBC & new SGMII-based Switched EOBC (if legacy cards present = traditional EOBC bus).
Supports two advanced 3.3V control logic modules, which are front-serviceable (located to left of power supplies).
Supports two 62.5MHz system clocking modules, which are rear-serviceable (located behind back-plate).
Supports three VTT-E voltage termination modules, which are rear-serviceable (located behind back-plate).

More Notes:
These PSUs are certified as Platinum Efficient, based on >90% efficiency rating.
Such PSUs waste 20% or less electric energy (as heat) at the specified load levels, thus reducing electricity use and bills compared to less efficient PSUs.
These are Viking 3000W power supplies P/N: 341-0401-XX
Viking power supplies are communicated with via I2C.

The particular I2C is known as PMBus. This is an industry standard (see
PSU Fault conditions are:
 5V out of range
 Output stage OT
 Fan Fault
 Or-ing fault (Output voltage less than bus voltage)
 OC shutdown
 OT shutdown
 OV shutdown
 Input stage OT
  Fault induced shutdown occurred
 Thermal sensor fault
 Vout out of range
 Boost Vbulk fault (AC power supply only)

Cisco ONE Software for Access Switching is available for the Cisco Catalyst 6807-XL Modular Switch.
