Cisco Catalyst 6500 Switch Module - 16 Ports - 10/100/1000 - Fabric-Enabled - Requires GBICS
Connecting a lot of devices to fiber optic Gigabit Ethernet all at once is now easy because the plug-in WS-X6516A-GBIC provides room for 16 GBIC port modules. You can even pick and choose which kinds of GBIC port devices you want to use because this Cisco switch module comes with unpopulated slots.

Of course, the fact that the WS-X6516A-GBIC is unpopulated doesn't make it any less capable; this refurbished Cisco Catalyst interface card is backed up by unique hardware and built-in software features. A 1 MB buffer on each port makes this device perfect for burst-heavy and low latency traffic alike. Weighted Round Robin schedule queuing ensures that packet flows have ample system resources no matter how big or small they may be. Support for SNMP 1, SNMP 2, RMON 1, RMON 2, RMON 3, RMON 9, SNMP 3 and SMON remote management protocols ensures that your admins can manage the network however you want them to, and you'll never have to change your normal administrative habits.

The WS-X6516A-GBIC is compatible with many devices, but it was specifically designed for use in Cisco Catalyst 6503, 6506, 6506 chassis, 6509, 6509 chassis, 6509-NEB and 6513 devices. It boasts full duplex capacity and hot swaps in and out quickly, meaning that you can create a high speed, uplink-capable 6500-series device or connect hubs to each other in no time. Cisco Express Forwarding allows this switch to boast an amazing performance of 256 Gbps and a 30 Mpps per system forwarding rate. With a single 8 Gbps backplane connection to the switch fabric and a 32 Gbps shared bus connection, you can insert this card into any slot in any compatible chassis and get to work.
