Coupled with the Cisco NX-OS Software (available separately), the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series 10-Slot chassis delivers a rich set of features for data centers with nonstop operation. Designed for reliability and maximum availability, all interface and supervisor modules are accessible from the front, and the redundant power supplies, fan trays, and fabric modules are all accessible completely from the rear to ensure that cabling is not disrupted during maintenance. The system uses dual dedicated supervisor modules; a scalable, fully distributed fabric architecture composed of up to five rear-mounted fabric modules combined with the chassis midplane delivers up to 7 Tbps of forwarding capacity in the 10-slot form factor.
The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series 10-Slot chassis with eight I/O module slots supports up to 256 10 Gigabit Ethernet or 384 Gigabit Ethernet ports, meeting the demands of the largest data center deployments. The integrated cable management tray is designed to allow all cables to be groomed correctly either to a single side or to both sides.
The system supports an optional air filter to ensure clean air flow through the system. The addition of the air filter satisfies Network Equipment Building Standards (NEBS) requirements.
A series of LEDs at the top of the chassis provide a clear summary of the status of the major system components, alerting operators to the need to perform further investigation. These LEDs report the power supply, fan, fabric, supervisor, and I/O module status.
The cable management cover and optional front module doors provide protection from accidental interference with both the cabling and modules installed in the system. The transparent front door allows observation of cabling, module indicator and status lights.
