Press about the new Voltaire 6048 48p 10g switch indicates that it's a
single switch chip:
Arista seems to have a similar product at a similarish list price, and
that list price is a lot less than chassis switches using 24p silicon.
Fujitsu isn't selling a 48p switch, and I'm not up enough on silicon
vendors to tell you if Fulcrum is still the only other vendor. I
used to know this stuff, then I left HPC to build a search engine :-)
