Hello Carl,

your understanding is correct


non blocking means the backplane can process traffic line rate tx/rx on each port including uplinks


Hope to help

ie if a port has 48 100 meg ports, the switch will process 4.8 gig of traffic ?

x 2: 9,6


calculated for processing full duplex (=RX+TX) traffic

It also often means, the switch's architecture avoids head-of-line blocking.
