Catalyst 6800 Shipping!I am pleased to announce that Catalyst 6807-XL and 6880-X are shipping now! Launched at Cisco Live Orlando this year, Cisco Catalyst 6800 Series Switches are programmable campus backbone switches optimized for 10/40/100 Gigabit Ethernet services. They are built for rich 10/40/100G services for BYOD & collaboration, support programmability and simplicity, and have the DNA of Catalyst 6500.


Catalyst 6807-XL is a modular seven-slot switch with up to 880 gigs per slot and 11.4 terabits per second of switching capacity. Catalyst 6880-X is an 80 x 1/10G ports switch in compact form factor with advanced campus services. Catalyst 6800ia is a stackable access switch built for Catalyst Instant Access that started shipping in October.

Catalyst 6500 is currently the industry’s most widely deployment enterprise modular switch and has helped enterprises embrace technological transitions like mainframe to client-server computing, voice & video integration to data networking and wired & wireless access to unified access. Catalyst 6800 is continuing the tradition with the transition to programmability, IT simplicity and many more to come in the future.

I wish Catalyst 6800 family a successful journey into the next decade.
