          Ordering Information

          The Cisco Nexus 3172TQ switch is a dense, high-performance Layer 2 and 3 10 and 40-Gbps switch that is a member of the Cisco Nexus 3100 switches. The Nexus 3100 switch is the Cisco Nexus 3000 series switches and offers improved port density, scalability, and features compared to the first-generation switches. It supports both forward and reverse airflow schemes with AC and DC power inputs. The Cisco Nexus 3172TQ is well suited for data centers that require a cost-effective, power-efficient line-rate Layer 2 and 3 top-of-rack (ToR) switch.

          Cisco Nexus 3172TQ is a 10GBASE-T switch with 48 10GBASE-T ports and 6 Quad SFP+ (QSFP+) ports. This switch is well suited for customers who want to reuse existing copper cabling while migrating from 1-Gbps to 10-Gbps servers.

          Compatibility Notes The Cisco Nexus 3172 switches provide Layer 2 and 3 switching of up to 1.4 terabits per second (Tbps) and up to 1 billion packets per second (bpps) in a compact 1RU form factor.

          Virtual PortChannel (vPC) technology provides Layer 2 multipathing through the elimination of Spanning Tree Protocol. It also enables fully utilized bisectional bandwidth and simplified Layer 2 logical topologies without the need to change the existing management and deployment models.

          The 64-way equal-cost multipath (ECMP) routing enables the use of Layer 3 fat-tree designs that allows organizations to prevent network bottlenecks, increase resiliency, and add capacity with little network disruption.

          Advanced reboot capabilities included through In Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) and Fast Reboot capabilities.

          Power-supply units (PSUs) and fans are hot swappable.

          The Cisco Nexus 3172 switches deliver ultra-low nominal latency, which allows customers to implement high-performance infrastructure for high-frequency trading (HFT) workloads.

          PowerOn Auto Provisioning (POAP) enables touchless bootup and configuration of the switch, drastically reducing provisioning time.

          Cisco Embedded Event Manager (EEM) and Python scripting enable automation and remote operations in the data center.

          Advanced buffer monitoring reports real-time buffer use per port and per queue, which allows organizations to monitor traffic bursts and application traffic patterns.

          Ethanalyzer is a built-in packet analyzer for monitoring and troubleshooting control-plane traffic and is based on the popular Wireshark open source network protocol analyzer.

          Precision Time Protocol (PTP; IEEE 1588) provides accurate clock synchronization and improved data correlation with network captures and system events.

          Complete Layer 3 unicast and multicast routing protocol suites are supported, including Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Routing Information Protocol Version 2 (RIPv2), Protocol Independent Multicast sparse mode (PIM-SM), Source-Specific Multicast (SSM), and Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP).
