Very very many.

As long you stay within a stack member, I think even the all-ports-gigabit gigabit version is wire-speed non-blocking. The one you have it is for sure.

When you go thru the cabling on the back that connects boxes, the bandwidth is 32 Gbps.

Thank you for your quick answer !

I need to aggregate and terminate approx. 200 multicast streams into three servers with optical gig interface so my plan was to stack the C3750G with a -12S.

I was told this switch family cannot do the job and should aim for the new C4500 instead.

So even going over the back plane, 200 streams would not overload a pair of C3750G?

200 streams = 700 mbps, so by far no.

Then you have the 3750e that have even more performance, but I don't think you need that.

To put it bluntly, if you don't need L3, you can do that with 29xx :)
