Product Review

The Cisco C6880-X-LE-16P10G offers substantial capacity for IPv4 and IPv6 routes, accommodating up to 256K and 128K routes respectively, which is beneficial for large-scale networks. However, the limitation of 64K ACL entries shared for QoS/security might be restrictive for complex network security configurations. Additionally, its environmental tolerance with operating temperatures up to 40°C and support for a wide range of humidity levels ensures reliability in diverse operational conditions, but the thermal transition rates could pose challenges in rapidly changing environments.


The Cisco C6880-X-LE-16P10G is designed for extensible fixed aggregation in demanding network environments. This switch is equipped to handle a significant amount of data, offering a comprehensive solution for managing and routing traffic efficiently. It supports up to 256K IPv4 routes and 128K IPv6 routes, ensuring wide network coverage and high-performance levels for both current and future network standards. Additionally, it allows for 64K Access Control List (ACL) entries, which are shared for Quality of Service (QoS) and security purposes, providing a balanced approach to traffic management and network protection. This device stands out with its capacity to handle up to 2.5 million Netflow entries per system, with each module slot capable of supporting 512K entries. This feature is crucial for network administrators who require detailed traffic analysis and network monitoring to optimize performance and security. The Cisco C6880-X-LE-16P10G also supports an equivalent capacity for IPv4 and IPv6 multicast routes, each at 128K, facilitating efficient distribution of data across both protocols. The hardware is engineered to operate reliably under a range of environmental conditions. It can function at a maximum operating temperature of 40°C and can withstand storage temperatures ranging from -40°C to 70°C. The device is designed to handle thermal transitions gradually, with a rate of 0.5°C per minute when heating and 0.33°C per minute when cooling, minimizing the risk of condensation and thermal stress. Additionally, it can operate effectively between 5% to 90% non-condensing relative humidity, ensuring performance stability in various environmental conditions. The switch is also built to perform at altitudes up to 6500 feet without degradation in service quality. For network administrators looking to enforce traffic policies, the Cisco C6880-X-LE-16P10G offers considerable flexibility. It features 16,348 aggregate traffic rate-limiting policers, 20 Layer 2 ingress rate limiters, and 6 Layer 2 egress rate limiters. The distributed policers enhance the system's ability to manage traffic efficiently across the network, ensuring optimal performance and adherence to policy. Key hardware specifications include: -
  • Support for up to 256K IPv4 routes and 128K IPv6 routes.
  • Capacity for 64K ACL entries shared for QoS and security.
  • Capability to handle up to 2.5M Netflow entries per system.
Designed for use with the extensible fixed aggregation switch, this model is tailored for organizations that require a scalable, high-capacity networking solution. Its comprehensive set of features and specifications make it a suitable choice for a wide range of applications, from enterprise environments to data centers, where reliability, scalability, and performance are critical.
