The Cisco Catalyst 6500/Cisco 7600 Series Supervisor Engine 720 is a family of Supervisor Engines designed to deliver scalable performance and rich set of IP features in hardware. Its hardware-based feature set can enable applications such as traditional IP forwarding Layer 2 and Layer 3 Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPNs, Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS) with quality of service (QoS) and security features.
The Cisco Supervisor Engine 720 offers strong security features. System security is hardened with support for features such as Port Security, CPU rate limiting, Multi-Path uRPF and 802.1x with VLAN. Extensive feature support such as QoS mechanisms, hardware-based generic-routing-encapsulation (GRE) tunneling, and access control lists (ACLs) enable customers to build high-performance, feature-rich networks capable of offering services such as MPLS VPNs, metropolitan (metro) aggregation, and various WAN edge services.
With enhanced security, rich QoS and scalable performance for Gigabit and 10gigabit, the Sup720 is ideal for enterprise core and distribution and datacenters.
