6500 Fabric Speed & 6708 Fabric connection

What is the plan to increase the 6500 backplane capacity from 720 Gbps? Also, will there be a way to increase the 40 Gbps fabric connection to 80 Gbps non-blocking?

Re: 6500 Fabric Speed & 6708 Fabric connection

There is no way to increase the backplane capacity of 6500 from 720 Gbps. If you require high density gigabit ethernet connectivity, then this is what the 256G Crossbar switch fabric is designed to support. The current capabilities of the 6500 is that it supports a 16 G bus architecture, so you could possibly over-subscribe the existing switch with more than one 16 port Gig module.
