Cisco's Catalyst 6800 Adds Another Ten Years to Catalyst 6500 Series

Modular switches are big IT investments, with longevity assumed in the purchase. Cisco communicates longevity by continuing to invest in research and development, adding platform value with backward compatibility of previous investments to migrate forward--that is, no forklift upgrades and extracts maximum value from past purchases, delivering investment protection and trust. With the Cisco Catalyst 6500 as the most deployed campus backbone switch, Cisco has invested hundreds of millions of dollars on a Catalyst innovation roadmap with the 6800 being the latest result of this investment. This Lippis Report Research Note reviews the Catalyst 6800, and predicts that the Catalyst will be in operation well into 2025.
