Fabric Capacity planning

Hello NetworkLessons team
How can the concept of “Fabric Capacity planning” be explained?


Hello Armando

Fabric capacity planning primarily has to do with the capacities and capabilities of the switching fabric within a network. Now, this could be a more traditional 3-tier campus network, or a datacenter network win a spine and leaf topology. This could also include features such as VSS or StackWise that play a part in fabric capacities.

This is covered for the most part in Unit 5: Network Architecture of the CCNP ENCOR course. I’ll speak to @ReneMolenaar to see if he has any additional thoughts on this…

I hope this has been helpful!


Hi Lazaro,

thanks for the clarification, greetings.
