FortiGate 100E and 101E fast path architecture

The FortiGate 100E and 101E includes the SOC3 and uses the SOC3 CPU, NP6Lite processor, and CP9Lite processor. The WAN1, WAN2, HA1, HA2, 1 - 16, SFP1, and SFP2 interfaces connect to the NP6Lite processor through the integrated switch fabric. The DMZ and MGMT interfaces connect directly to the NP6Lite processor.

Interfaces 15 and SFP1 are paired and interfaces 16 and SPF2 are paired. Only one of each interface pair can be connected to a network at a time. This allows you to, for example, connect interface SFP1 to an SFP switch and interface 16 to a 10/100/1000BASE-T Copper switch.

The FortiGate 100F and 101F models feature the following front panel interfaces:

  • Two 10/100/1000BASE-T Copper (DMZ, MGMT) that connect directly to the NP6Lite
  • Eighteen 10/100/1000BASE-T Copper (WAN1, WAN2, HA1, HA2, 1 to 14) that connect to the NP6Lite processor through the internal switch fabric
  • Two shared interfaces that connect to the NP6Lite processor through the internal switch fabric and can be either:
    • 10/100/1000BASE-T Copper (15 and 16), or
    • 1GE SFP (SFP1 and SFP2)

You can use the following get command to display the FortiGate 100E or 101E NP6Lite configuration. You can also use the diagnose npu np6lite port-list command to display this information.
