Product Review

The Cisco C9400-SUP-1XL offers substantial capacity for Layer 3 routing, supporting up to 64,000 IPv4 LPM routes and 32,000 IPv6 LPM routes, making it suitable for both access and core network layers. However, its MAC address capacity is limited to 16,000 for core deployments, which may restrict scalability in environments with high device densities. It excels in environmental resilience, demonstrated by its wide operating temperature range and high MTBF of 253,010 hours, ensuring reliable performance in various conditions.


The Cisco C9400-SUP-1XL is a leading-edge networking module designed to deliver high performance, scalability, and security features for modern enterprise networks. Engineered to fit into the Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series chassis, this supervisor module is optimized for both core and access layer deployments. Its comprehensive suite of features and specifications ensures it meets the demands of complex, data-intensive environments. At the heart of its capabilities, the C9400-SUP-1XL supports a vast array of routes and addresses. It can handle up to 64,000 IPv4 Longest Prefix Match (LPM) routes and 32,000 for IPv6, ensuring efficient routing across a broad network. For environments requiring a high number of host routes, this module offers support for 48,000 IPv4 and 24,000 IPv6 host routes in access configurations, with numbers adjusting to 32,000 and 16,000 respectively for core deployments. This flexibility ensures that the module can be tailored to the specific needs of various network architectures. The module also excels in multicast and MAC address capacities. It supports 16,000 Layer 2 multicast addresses and can scale up to 32,000 Layer 3 multicast addresses for core deployments, alongside a MAC address table that can accommodate 64,000 entries in access configurations and 16,000 in core setups. This high capacity enables the module to support dense, multimedia-rich network environments without compromising on performance. Security and Quality of Service (QoS) are also paramount, with the module supporting 18,000 Security Access Control Lists (ACLs) and 18,000 QoS ACLs. These features ensure that the network remains secure while providing the necessary prioritization of traffic to maintain service levels. Additionally, the module offers advanced features such as Scalable Group Tags (SGT) with support for up to 8,000 labels, highlighting its readiness for secure, segmented networking environments. The Cisco C9400-SUP-1XL is not just about routing and security. It also supports a wide range of other features: - Flexible NetFlow entries up to 384,000, enabling detailed network traffic analysis - Policy-Based Routing (PBR) and Network Address Translation (NAT) entries up to 2,000 - Support for up to 1,000 tunnels for secure and efficient data transport Moreover, the module is designed to support advanced network services like MPLS L3VPN, with capacities for 256 Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) instances, 12,000 MPLS labels for access configurations, and up to 32,000 MPLS L3VPN routes VRF, ensuring it can handle complex, multi-tenant environments effectively. Physically, the C9400-SUP-1XL measures 1.6 x 14.92 x 14.57 inches and weighs 10 lbs, making it compact yet sturdy for use in various networking environments.
