Scary amounts of bandwidth!

Here's my question... any contention / oversubscription in the gear itself?

Droolworthy indeed!

None. Its all line rate.

The muxponders dont talk amongst themselves. All (de)multiplexing is done on the card, with the 100G signal transmitted and received via an on-card line port.

So no contention or oversubscription to worry about on the backplane (which isnt even used in this configuration except for system/management traffic.)
