4507 SSO mode Sup7L-E 10GbE interfaces

Hi,

What is the case with redundant Sup engine 10GbE interfaces. We can only get one in active state, the other interface stays inactive? Can we have all four interfaces active sharing the backplane?

Mod Ports Card Type                              Model            

---+-----+--------------------------------------+------------------+-----------

Hi Brendan,

The Supervisor Engine 7L-E has four uplink ports. Ports 1 and 2 support either 10GBASE SFP+ transceivers or 1000BASE SFP transceivers. Ports 3 and 4 support only 1000BASE SFP transceivers. There are restrictions on the use of the uplink ports in both single supervisor engine and redundant supervisor engine configurations and both 10-G and 1-G operation.

Refer the below Table for a matrix of uplink port permissible transceiver configurations and transceiver restrictions.
