Supervisor
Dedicated connectivity management processor (CMP) to

support remote management and troubleshooting of the


complete system
System fabric for all line cards

The supervisor controls:


Layer 2 and Layer 3 services
Redundancy capabilities
Configuration management
Status monitoring
Power and environmental management

CMP
Remote control through its own dedicated processor,

memory, and bootflash memory and a separate


Ethernet management port
Can reset all system components, including power
supplies & host supervisor module and allow a
complete system restart.
