Cold Fusion Chassis Options
Chassis can be populated with any combination of Interface Blades
The 12 RU 8-Slot Chassis can be populated with up to eight Interface Blades. The Chassis also houses integrated fabric control components, variable-speed fan units that automatically adjust according to the system temperature, and hot-swappable AC power supplies.
Port capacities per 8-Slot Chassis vary depending on the type of Interface blade used. Maximum port count is:
- 256 any-to-any mapping ports of up to 128Gbps
- 1024 ports of up to 28Gbps/32Gbps Fibre Channel (32 QSFP Blade)
- 512 any-to-any mapping ports up to 28G/32Gbps Fibre Channel (64 SFP Blade)
ColdFusion Interface Blade Options
Interface Blades can be installed in any chassis slot
32 QSFP Interface Blade.
Each 32 QSFP Interface Blade has 32 configurable QSFP28/SFP28 ports that support any MSA compliant QSFP module with data rates up to 128Gbps. Additionally, each port partitions into four 1Gbps- 28Gbps (32Gbps Fibre Channel) data lanes and using breakout cables each blade supports up to 128 data lanes.
64 SFP Interface Blade
Each 64 SFP Interface blade has 64 configurable SFP-based ports supporting any MSA compliant SFP module up to 28Gbps. (32Gbps Fibre Channel) Ethernet RJ45 SPF copper modules are also supported for rates up to 10G.
