    We use BDX8 to beat N77-C7706
    Cisco N77-C7706 have Forwarding capacity is 21 Tbps, BD x8 have Switching capacity is 20.48 Tbps, but I’m searching Forwarding capacity for BD X8, do you know this parameter ? please tell me

    I think it's approximately 11.4 Bpps (768 x 10Gb ports x 14,880,952 pps)

    Hi Kevin,
    Can you convert to Tbps like Cisco N77-C7706 (Forwarding Capacity : 21Tbps) ?

    In that sense, I think the switching capacity is the forwarding capacity, which is 20.48 Tbps since 4 fabric modules are all active.
