HP 7500 384Gbps Fab Mod w/2 XFP Ports - connectivity to the line card

hi all

 

we have the 384Gbps fabric installed on a HP7506 machine

i am trying to find information that tell me what is the backplane connectivity from the fabric to each of the installed line card we have:

JD210A HP 7500 48-port Gig-T Module

 JD211B HP 7500 48-port GbE SFP Module

i would like to understand if i will going to have a network issues if we will add a 10GE line card in the machine

 

regards

moshe

Hi,

 

if you have only one fabric installed you have 24Gbps (48Gbps bidirectional) capacity to each slot for inter module forwarding. If you have dual fabrics in load balance mode you have 48Gbps (96Gbps bidirectional). This means that with one fabric installed the 48-port Gig modules are NOT line rate (wire speed). Only with two fabrics installed the 48-port Gig modules and 4-port 10Gb modules are line rate (wire speed). 8-port 10Gb with two fabrics has aggregation of 2:1.

 

BR,

Jan
