CX915 introduction

The CX915 includes two physical planes: GE switching plane and FC switching plane.

GE switching plane:
? Provides 32 internal GE ports, which are connected to half-width compute node slots 1 to 16. The subcards corresponding to the slots are numbered from 1 to 16.
? Provides two internal GE ports, which are connected to the two MM910s respectively to communicate with them.
? Provides 12 external GE ports to connect to external switch modules or other network devices.
? Provides 4 external 10GE optical ports to connect to external switch modules or other network devices.
? The CX915 supports L3 switching.

FC switching plane:
? Provides eight external 8G FC ports to connect to external networks.
? Provides 12 internal GE ports, which are connected to half-width compute node slots 1 to 12.
? Provides four internal FC ports, which are connected to half-width compute node slots 13 to 16.

The two CX915s in a pair of slots can operate independently, in 1+1 redundancy mode, or in load sharing mode by working with the OS and NICs.
