Oversubscription on WS-X4908-10G-RJ45

Hi

I am looking to deploy WS-X4908-10G-RJ45. However I noticed that its production description listed them as 2:1 oversubscription in 4900M release notes and I was not able to find any document explaining more about it.     Would someone happen to have access to such document ?

Table 1 Supported Hardware for Catalyst 4900M Series Switch

Product Number (append with “=” for spares)
Product Description

WS-X4908-10G-RJ45

8 port 10 Gigabit linecard with 2 to 1 oversubscription

 

Thank you.

Hey Peggy,

I am guessing that you want to understand what is 2:1 oversubscribe ratio? Correct me if i am wrong.

In simpler terms the available backplane bandwidth to this switch is 40Gig but it has 8 ports in front with 10Gig capacity, which totals out to be 80Gig so if we divide 80 by 40, it gives reminder as 2. So in this way  WS-X4908-10G-RJ45 is 2:1 oversubscribe.

HTH.

Hi

Thanks for your posting.

Yes that is my question.   40Gig bandwidth is per half card ?   This 2:1 oversubscription also applies to the fixed board as well as the WS-X4908-10GE cards, right?

Yes, indeed you are right for both the observations, and 2:1 oversubscription applies to both modular and fixed board.
