The FortiSwitch-5003B board is an Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ACTA) compliant hub/switch board that provides 10-gigabit fabric and 1-gigabit base backplane channel layer-2 switching in a dual star architecture. The FortiSwitch-5003B board provides a total capacity of 225 Gigabits per second (Gbps) throughput.
The FortiSwitch-5003B system also supports 802.3ad static mode layer-2 link aggregation, 802.1q VLANs, and 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) for the fabric channels. You can use these features to configure link aggregation and support redundant FortiSwitch-5003B switch configurations to distribute traffic to multiple FortiGate-5000 boards.
