  • A:

    Hi, NC8400-4TH can be flexibly matched with line cards to increase the number of ports according to your needs.For example, you may only need 32x 100G QSFP28 ports before. As your business growing, you will need 128x 100G QSFP28 ports to finish the transmission. Now with NC8400-4TH, you only need to buy some line cards to expand the network. In addition, NC8400-4TH has a larger switching capacity (25.6 Tbps) and forwarding rate (19.05 Bpps), which can meet the greater data demand.By FS.COM on 14/10/2021
