512MB RAM Upgrade for FESX648+2XG-PREM?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

Does anyone knows what is the product number or specific module to upgrade our

FESX648+2XG-PREM Switch from 256MB RAM to 512MB.

 

We have been going all over the web for this information to no avail.

 

Please help.

 

Thank you,

 

Roger

Hi Roger,

 

You will be hard pressed to find this as the product is EOL and the last order date for any product or accessories was 6/5/13.

 

The FESX-6x line will be end of support on 8/5/18.

Hi Jonathon,

 

Thank you for your repy.

 

I agree with you on the hard to find module. In this case I just need the correct/exact part number in order to look everywhere I can in order to reach it. I'm willing to go BGP with this FESX648 and I have read that upgrading the RAM to 512MB doubles the BGP routing table capacity of the device even if we only get default or local routes from our ISP.

 

Again, thank you for your intervention.

 

Regards,

 

Roger
