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 400GigE QSFP-DD 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 400Gbps data networks. Interfaces 3 to 10 can be connected to 25Gbps data networks. You an also change the speeds of the front panel data interfaces.
FPM fabric channel data 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.
