Force10 patenting high speed backplanes

Just read a news article about Force 10's focus on patenting high-speed backplane technology. For example, US Patent 7124502 titled "Method of patenting a high-layer-count backplane" has been recently patented by Force 10. I have to read teh patent to find out the speed this can support. Force 10 already has its Terascale E-Series routers which can support a backplane bandwidth of 5 Tbps, and is currently used for 10 Gig Ethernet switches.
