          Ordering Information

          Cisco is introducing the Cisco Nexus 2248PQ 10GE Fabric Extender platform as part of the Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders. The Cisco Nexus 2248PQ builds on the success of the Cisco Nexus 2200 fabric extender platform, with greater port density and a lower oversubscription rate than the Cisco Nexus 2232PP 10GE Fabric Extender. It supports massively scalable 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet environments with fewer management points using the fabric extender architecture and enables transparent migration to 10 Gigabit Ethernet, virtual machine-aware unified fabric technologies. The new Cisco Nexus 2248PQ comes with forty-eight 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) host interfaces and four 40 Gigabit Ethernet Quad SFP+ (QSFP+) fabric interfaces to the parent Cisco Nexus switch.

          - Cisco Nexus 6000 Series and 5500 platform switches
          # Ports 52
          Contents switch, (2) DC power supplies, (4) fan modules
          General Information FEATURES:

          - Architectural flexibility
          - Feature/policy consistency across 2000+ ports
          - Cost effective solution at scale with simplified cabling
          - Single point of management resulting in simplified operations
          - Optimized utilization of bandwidth
          - Investment protection with feature inheritance from the parent switch
          - Operates as a remote I/O module, extending the switch fabric for Cisco Nexus 6000 Series and 5500 platform switches
          - 160-Gbps fabric in each direction (320 Gbps full duplex)
          - 3:1 oversubscription rate
          - FCoE and IEEE Data Center Bridging (DCB) support
          - In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU)
          - Support for host PortChannel and virtual PortChannel (vPC), with up to eight PortChannel members per PortChannel and no restriction on the number of PortChannels
          - Excellent for 10 Gigabit Ethernet server and pass-through blade server connectivity
          - Choice of port-side exhaust (front-to-back) cooling or port-side intake (reversed-airflow) cooling, compatible with data center hot-aisle and cold-aisle designs:
          -- With standard port-side exhaust (front-to-back cooling), all switch ports are at the rear of the unit in close proximity to server ports, aligned with the hot aisle
          -- With port-side intake (reversed airflow), ports are aligned with the cold aisle
          - Choice of AC or DC power supply (the default configuration includes redundant dual power supplies)
          - New coloring scheme on power supplies and fan trays to denote power supply and fan side in cold aisle (blue) and power supply and fan side in hot aisle (red)
          - Individual independent hot-swappable fan trays (N+1 redundancy)
          - Capability to be mixed with different types of Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders for the same parent switch to support various types of connectivity
          - Homogeneous policies across a large number of ports
          - Zero-touch provisioning, including configuration and software upgrade operations
          Memory Notes (2) 16 MB Buffers
