Hi all,

According to the data sheet, SUP32 provides 32Gbps and 15Mpps, is it per system basis?

If so, then it cannot allocate dedicated bandwidth per slot?

Is it mean that SUP32 cannot support, e.g. 48-port 1000BaseT wire-speed?


I am confused about SUP32 architecture.


Thanks a lot in advance.


Best Regards,

mak

Hi Mak,


Yes, the 32Gbps is correct, and it certainly cannot support 48-port 1000BaseT in a non-blocking fashion. On that note, we don't actually offer a 48 port gig card that is fully non-blocking.


You can think of the sup32 as positioned between the sup1a and the sup2 in terms of system performance, the main reason being that the sup32 has no support for a switch fabric module.


HTH,


Bobby
