Hi Surya,

This is a very vague question.  It's like asking someone to explain succinctly the functions of networks in a multi-media environment or theories in thermodynamics from an astro-physicist's point of view.

surya,

Think of supervisor as the brain/engine of the switch/router. Without the Sup the chassis is useless.

A switch/router without a Supervisor is like having a car with no engine.

Clearly explained (better than we could do here) in the relevant datasheet, if you had the time to read it as most cisco users do.
