c7000 midplane bandwidth maximum

Samuel had a midplane question:

 

******************

 

Is there any documentation listing the limitation of bandwidth over a single copper trace on the c7000 mid-plane?

 

I believe in a training for Infiniband c-class switches I heard the trace limit is 96Gb, but as of now have been unable to locate any document confirming this.

Here is a Doc that covers the nitty gritty of the c7000 and it has specirfics around this.

 

HP BladeSystem c-Class architecture

 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00810839/c00810839.pdf

 

First half or so of the doc spends a lot of time on Midplane and signaling.

 

Overall the midplane (today) had 5 terabits per second.

Any other comments or questions?

Re: c7000 midplane bandwidth maximum

Hi,

 

This question was made long ago, but I'm surely that will serve someone.

 

HP BladeSystem design.

  ...midplane with aggregate bandwidth of up to 7 Tbps...
