Installation and Configuration
The installation and configuration of the WS-SUP720-3BXL Cisco Supervisor Engine 720 Fabric Feature Card can be broken down into the following steps:
- Pre-installation checks: Verify the compatibility of the supervisor engine with the chassis, and check the version of the Cisco IOS software running on the router.
- Hardware installation: Remove the existing supervisor engine, if necessary, and install the WS-SUP720-3BXL in the appropriate slot in the chassis. Connect the appropriate cables and power supplies to the module.
- Software installation: Load the appropriate Cisco IOS software onto the router, either through a network transfer or by loading it directly from a storage device.
- Configuration: Connect to the router through a terminal or a Telnet/SSH session and configure the appropriate settings, including the hostname, IP address, and other network settings.
- Verification: Verify the installation and configuration of the WS-SUP720-3BXL by using the appropriate commands, such as "show module" and "show interfaces".
It's important to follow all safety precautions when installing the supervisor engine, including proper grounding and ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection. Additionally, it's recommended to have a backup configuration file in case of any issues during the installation or configuration process.
Resiliency and High Availability
The WS-SUP720-3BXL is a supervisor engine for Cisco routers that provides resiliency and high availability features for the network. The Fabric Feature Card (FFC) within this product allows for redundancy in the event of a supervisor engine failure, ensuring that there is minimal disruption to network operations. The FFC also allows for a "hitless" software upgrade, where the active supervisor engine can be upgraded without affecting network traffic. Additionally, this model provides support for the redundancy protocol, Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP), which allows for automatic failover in the event of a routing failure.
Benefits and Features
The WS-SUP720-3BXL is a supervisor engine for Cisco routers that provides a wide range of features and benefits to enhance the performance and reliability of a network. Some of the key benefits and features of the part include:
