Backplane speed V/s Number of Ports supported on catalyst 4006.

Hi,

Understand that catalyst 4006 switch has 64 Gbps backplane speed.

Also understand from the maximum port density table of catalyst 4006 as

10/100 - 240 ports, 100 Base FX - 240 ports.

Also understand that this switch supports 10/100/1000 - 240 ports.

How do we justify the back plane speed(64 Gbps) with 240 * 1000 Mbps ports on a single catalyst 4006 switch.

What is the relationship between the Backplane speed and the number of available ports?

regards,

n.s.ravishankar

The uplinks are non-blocking. Each line module has 12 GBbps (6 each way) for switch fabric connections.
