Two new line cards are available for the NCS5500 chassis and they will support 400GE (Gigabit Ethernet) QSFP-DD optics !
Note: the cards won't be named NC55-xx but NC57-xx to differentiate J2-based products.
They will require a minimum software release and specific fan trays / fabric-cards (v2).
Based on J2 NPU, these two cards offer 400GE connectivity. This video will detail the port density, the features, the 400GE break-out options and much more.
