FortiGate-200E and 201E fast path architecture

The FortiGate-200E and 201E include two NP6lite processors. Because of this model does not include a switch fabric, you cannot create Link Aggregation Groups (LAGs) between interfaces connected to different NP6lites. As well traffic will only be offloaded if it enters and exits the FortiGate on interfaces connected to the same NP6lite.

The NP6lites are connected to network interfaces as follows:

  • NP6lite_0 is connected to six 1GE RJ-45 interfaces (port9-port14) and four 1GE SFP interfaces (port15-18).
  • NP6lite_1 is connected to Eight 1GE RJ45 interfaces (wan1, wan2, port1-port6).

The following diagram also shows the RGMII and QSGMII port connections between the NP6lite processors and the front panel interfaces.

You can use the following get command to display the FortiGate-200E or 201E NP6lite configuration. You can also use the diagnose npu np6lite port-list command to display this information.
