WiSM information needed

Could someone discuss the creation and use of the two port-channels you must configure when setting up the WiSM? From the documentation I've read, the port-channels control the two "sides" of the WiSM card with each card being able to support 150 APs. After configuring the port-channels, you have to assign the 8(or 10 in my case) Gig interfaces that are automatically created into these port-channels.

Can someone explain how these gig interfaces are used? Obviously these are logical interfaces, so are they used for backplane communications of some sort for the APs? Do you have to distribute these interfaces evenly across the channels, or can you decide on the ratio based on your needs?

Thanks in advance for any information.

Allocation of interfaces for the port-channel varies depending upon the needs It need not always be evenly distributed.
