blocking and non blocking switches

Hi all, can anyone tell me what this means, does it mean the switch will forward whatever traffic goes through it at full throughput for every port ?

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

Re: blocking and non blocking switches

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

Re: blocking and non blocking switches

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.
