And this is why I was curious why Cisco gave the NCS copper interconnect
for the fabric.

For now, seems like 1Tbps is the physical limit when using copper
connectors. This means that Cisco may have to develop another router
with an optical fabric to pass the 1Tbps/slot number (this is conjecture
on my part, from the little I have gathered around this subject, so I
could be wrong).
