transfert rate definition

hello

i can't find the exactly definition of one switch's caracteristic , that is: transfert rate.

for exemple : for the catalyst 2950, we find that it has a backplane of 8,8Gbps

and a transfert rate of : 1,8Mpps (12 ports)

: 3,6Mpps (24 ports)

so can any one explain me the exact definition of this parameter

thx

Re: transfert rate definition

The transfer rates you mention are the forwarding rates. This is the aggregate bandwidth with which the switch can send at any given time via a combination of ports.
