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.
