HWIC-4T total bandwidth

I want to make sure what I read from data sheet. It says that each serial interface at HWIC-4T can support up to 8Mbps. Does it mean that if I use all the interfaces, total bandwidth will be 32Mbps or all interfaces will share the 8Mbps ?

As what I see at PA-8T module, only if 6 ports is 'shutdown', the remaining ports can support upto 8Mbps.

Thanks in advance.

As per the data sheet it does support 8Mbps per port but most of the time the serial interfaces are not used above the T1/E1 rates.

Better to ask your Cisco SE to furnish some details of the testinf done for rates more than 2Mbps per port on these cards
