Catalyst 9407

Dears,

 

Please explain me Cisco mentioned 9404,9407,9410 series goes upto 9tbps how ???  the throughput of each line card is 240 and 80 GB so how once can do the maths.

 

i want  to compare between the supervisor engines of the 9400 switches with SUP2T and SUP6T, so how to compare please advice.

 

thanks

adamgibs7,

 

The 9TBS is a theoretical maximum that could be achieved with future supervisor modules.

 

The Catalyst 9400 series chassis have the capability to do 480Gbps per slot in each direction, for a total of 960Gbps per slot.

  • 960Gbps per slot * 8 payload slots in the 10-slot chassis = 7.68 Tbps
  • There is another channel between the two Supervisor slots that is ~1 Tbps
  • Add these up , and round up for marketing purposes :-) , and you have 9 Tbps

As previous posters have mentioned, the 9400 Chassis should be looked at as a high-density Access Layer option  when going beyond 3 stackables in a stack. This is where the economics of a chassis becomes better, plus with dual supervisors you get ISSU.

 

Cheers,
Scott

Re: Catalyst 9407

The 9400 series switches are mainly used for the access layer and the sup 2T and 6T are used in core switches like the 6700 series which is used at the core.  So, you can't really compare the 9400 sups with sups for the 6700 series. What are you looking for?

Thanks for the reply,

 

can you please elaborate for the 9 Tbps throughput how the switch can achieve this, i want to understand the maths behind this.
