Since you’re mentioning 100MHz:
I was pondering around together with a colleague recently about the forwarding network.
It seemed to us that you face exactly the same issues than anybody else implementing a forwarding network with a large number of FUs.
Did you do a sniff check on the wiring issues you’ll get with the larger members, especially GOLD?

On a related note I’m curious if I’m right that the size of the belt scales linearly with the number of FUs. IOW, is the number of belt entries per FU roughly constant across members?

I hope none of these answers fall in the NYF department ;)
