Base Chassis cost for a 6503-E is about $13,000.
The IDS Blade is a card and that lists for $29,995.
Is the 6509 and E chassis? If so, here is a short description:
The 9-slot Cisco Catalyst 6509-E Switch provides high port densities that are ideal for many wiring closet, distribution, and core network as well as data center deployments. The Cisco Catalyst 6509-E supports Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series end-to-end operational consistency benefits.
Supports all Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series modules, including:
Fast Ethernet modules (with IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet [PoE])
Gigabit Ethernet modules (with IEEE 802.3af PoE)
10 Gigabit Ethernet modules
Flex WAN modules
Shared Port Adaptors/SPA Interface Processors
Multi-Gigabit services modules (content services ,firewall, intrusion detection, IP Security [IPSec], VPN, network analysis, and Secure Sockets Layer [SSL] acceleration)
The Cisco Catalyst 6509-E supports both Cisco Catalyst OS and Cisco IOS Software. It also supports up to a 6000W power supply, thus providing the ability to support large numbers of IEEE 802.3af PoE devices.
The Cisco Catalyst 6509-E provides maximum uptime with redundancy and rapid (1 to 3 seconds) stateful failover across supervisor engines. It supports modular Cisco IOS Software to minimize unplanned downtime through self-healing processes and simplifies software changes through subsystem in-service software upgrades.
The Cisco Catalyst 6509-E Firewall Security System is a 9-slot model providing an easily deployed solution that integrates a Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 720 (with integrated policy and multilayer switch feature cards [PFC3/MSFC3] for system control, routing services, and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports); a Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Firewall Services Module providing 5 Gbps of firewall services; and 7 additional open slots for further customization.
Cisco Catalyst IPSec VPN systems take advantage of the Cisco 7600/Catalyst 6500 IPSec VPN Services Module and provide up to 2 Gbps of Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES) encryption. The systems provide a broad suite of services and a multitude of I/O interfaces.
If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.
