FPM-7620F processing module

The FPM-7620F processor module is a high-performance worker module that processes sessions load balanced to it by FIMs over the chassis fabric backplane. The FPM-7620F includes two 400Gbps data connections to the FIMs over the chassis fabric backplane and two 50Gbps management connections to the FIMs over base backplane. FPM-7620Fs are installed in chassis slots 3 and up.

The FPM-7620F also includes two front panel 100GigE QSFP28 fabric channel data interfaces (1 and 2) and eight 10/25GigE SFP28 fabric channel data interfaces (3 to 10). Interfaces 1 and 2 can be connected to 100Gbps data networks. Interfaces 3 to 10 can be connected to 25Gbps data networks. FPM data network interfaces increase the number of data interfaces supported by FortiGate-7000F. Data traffic received by these interfaces is sent over the fabric backplane to the FIM NP7 processors to be load balanced back to the FPMs.

The FPM-7620F processes sessions using a dual CPU configuration, accelerates network traffic processing with two NP7 processors and accelerates content processing with eight CP9 processors. The NP7 network processors are connected by the FIM switch fabric so all supported traffic types can be fast path accelerated by the NP7 processors.

You connect the FPM-7620F to your 100Gbps networks using the 1 and 2 front panel QSFP28 fabric channel interfaces. You can also connect the FPM-7620F to your 25Gbps networks using the front panel 3 to 10 SFP28 fabric channel interfaces. You can create link aggregation groups (LAGs) that can include data interfaces from multiple FIMs and FPMs in the same chassis.

FPM-7620E hardware schematic

The two FPM-7620F NP7 network processors provide hardware acceleration by offloading data traffic from the FPM-7620F CPUs. The result is enhanced network performance provided by the NP7 processors plus the network processing load is removed from the CPU. The NP7processor can also handle some CPU intensive tasks, like IPsec VPN encryption/decryption. Because of the integrated switch fabric, all sessions are fast-pathed and accelerated.

Traffic from FPM-7620F front panel data interfaces is sent over the fabric channel backplane to the FIMs where NP7 processors use SLBC to distribute sessions to individual FPMs. The FPM-7620F can be processing traffic received from FIM data interfaces and from FPM data interfaces.
