SAMI Module Compatibility



We have a Cisco 7609 router. We are wanting to purchase a SAMI board

(Service and Application Module for IP - WS-SVC-SAMI-BB-K9 ). With reference to the requirements:

System Requirements

• All Cisco 7600 Series Chassis and 7600 S-Chassis are supported.

• Cisco Service and Application Module for IP is supported in Cisco IOS® Software Release 12.2(33)SRB1 (native) for the Cisco 7600 Series.

• Supported supervisor engines are:

– Supervisor Minimum IOS Software release

– WS-SUP720 12.2(33)SRB

– WS-SUP720-3B 12.2(33)SRB

– WS-SUP720-3BXL 12.2(33)SRB

– WS-SUP32-GE-3B 12.2(33)SRC

– WS-SUP32-10GE-3B 12.2(33)SRC

– WS-RSP720-3C-GE 12.2(33)SRC

– WS-RSP720-3CXL-GE 12.2(33)SRC

– WS-RSP720-3CXL-10GE 12.2SRE

• Single or redundant supervisor engine configurations are supported.

• There is no restriction on other cards (such as service and network modules) on the chassis.

I noticed that it only mentions a “Supervisor Engine”. The thing is our Cisco 7609 uses Switch Processors and NOT Supervisor Engines. I know they are similar, so will the SAMI board work with “Switch Processors”?
