## Core/Distribution/Access Oversubscription Ratio Calculation

Hi Tech Guys,

Could you share some guide about calaculation Oversubscription ratio between Access to Distribution and Distribution to Core,

For example for Cisco 9400 per slot capacity is 80Gbps and and how can we use 24 Port 10G Moudule which is giving full capacity= 24x10= 240Gbps. how can we calculate oversubscription ratio.

hi
if its sup1 and the its maxed to 80 GB per slot and you have the full 24 ports running at 10GB then its a 3/1ratio of over subscription , 240/80

looks like only the 9404 running sup 1X or XY can do 240GB per slot

EDIT: corrected mine back to front , early mornings :)

Hi there,

The linecard oversubscription would be 240/80 which gives a ration of 3:1 .

The calculate the combined oversubscription through the layers, you multiply the ratios. eg:

Say you have an access ratio of 3:1 and an aggregation of 1.5:1  that would give 3*1.5 = 4.5:1

cheers,

Thanks Seb for reply,
