What would be a good upgrade from Cisco 6506-E?
Posted on 2016-10-27
We're looking to upgrade our Cisco 6506-E which act as a core in our network. In this upgrade, we're looking to upgrade to a mixed 1Gb and 10Gb network. I'm looking at the Nexus 5K with 2K.
If I want to reduce the cost, does the 3850 have enough power to replace the 6506 at all? the number on its datasheet seems fine.
Is it worth to upgrade the chassis at all or replace line cards with 10Gb SFP? The cost of the 10Gb line cards is expensive.
These are the module I have on the 6506-E...
