The FortiGate 200F and 201F both include a SOC4 NP6XLite processor. The SOC4 CPU and CP9XLite are not used. Instead, the FortiGate 200F and 201F architecture includes separate CPU resources and two standard CP9 processors. All of the data interfaces (1 to 24 and X1 to X4) connect to the NP6XLite processor through the integrated switch fabric. The X3 and X4 interfaces are FortiLink interfaces. The HA and MGMT interfaces, are not connected to the NP6XLite processor.
The FortiGate 200F and 201F models feature the following front panel interfaces:
- Two 10/100/1000BASE-T Copper (HA, MGMT) that are not connected to the NP6XLite.
- Sixteen 10/100/1000BASE-T Copper (1 to 16).
- Four 10 GigE SFP+ (X1 to X4). X3 and X3 are FortiLink interfaces.
- Eight 1GigE SFP (17 to 24).
All front panel data interfaces and the NP6XLite processor connect to the integrated switch fabric (ISF). All data traffic passes from the data interfaces through the ISF to the NP6XLite processor. All supported traffic passing between any two data interfaces can be offloaded by the NP6XLite processor. Data traffic to be processed by the CPU takes a dedicated data path through the ISF and the NP6XLite processor to the CPU.
The MGMT interface is not connected to the NP6XLite processor. Management traffic passes to the CPU over a dedicated management path that is separate from the data path. The HA interface is also not connected to the NP6XLite processor. To help provide better HA stability and resiliency, HA traffic uses a dedicated physical control path that provides HA control traffic separation from data traffic processing. The separation of management and HA traffic from data traffic keeps management and HA traffic from affecting the stability and performance of data traffic processing.
