I have a couple of 6509-E combined in a VSS system. I need to upgrade them to support 8 (or 16 at max) 10G uplinks. I already used the two built-in
VS-S720-10G fiber connectors for VSL links.
Which Ethernet modules do you suggest to use? are there any related upgrades that I have to do?
supervisor used: VS-S720-10G

If you need 8 ports, you might use the 6708. Whether that's the best choice also depends on how much capacity you need per port (VS-S720-10G only supports 40Gbps per slot) and/or whether you want VSL support on the line card's ports.
The only major consideration might be to "match" any line card's DFC with your sup's capabilities, e.g. non-XL vs. XL.
