The WS-X6148X2 blade requires at least CatOS 8.2 on the supervisor engine, meaning at least 32mb flash and 256mb DRAM. The blade requires the use of an external "splitter" to provide access to all 96 ports, the blade itself has only 48 physical ports. If you are going to support inline power (802.3af) there will be certain minimum power supply requirements in the chassis, as well as a maximum per-port wattage usage limit. I cannot find/am not aware of any performance limitations on the module.
