Backplane Question

I understand the 2800 has a 1 GBit backplane. If you have more than one GBit incoming, can you push more than one GBit out. For example, if I have 8 inbound ports each capable of receiving 1 GBit, can I push 1 GBit out of each of the other 8 ports?

Re: Backplane Question

yes. Also, don't think that the 1Gb/s backplane thing is accurate as you should be able to achieve full line speed throughput on all ports.
