The Cisco Nexus 9000 series switches include both modular and fixed-port switches that are designed to overcome these challenges with a flexible, agile, low-cost, application centric infrastructure (ACI).
The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform is composed of fixed-port switches designed for top-of-rack (ToR) and middle-of-row (MoR) deployment in data centers that support enterprise applications, service provider hosting, and cloud computing environments. Cisco Nexus 9300 series switches are layer 2 and 3 nonblocking 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet and fiber channel over Ethernet (FCoE)-capable switches with up to 1.28 terabits per second (Tbps) of internal bandwidth.
The Cisco Nexus 9396PX switch is a two-rack-unit (RU) switch that supports 960 Gbps of bandwidth across 48 fixed 10-Gbps SFP+ ports and 12 fixed 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports. The 40-Gbps ports are provided on an uplink module that can be serviced and replaced by the user.
The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform switch is high-density, nonblocking, low-power-consuming switches designed for ToR, MoR, or EoR deployment in enterprise data centers, service provider facilities, and large virtualized and cloud computing environments. The platform offers industry-leading density and performance with flexible port configurations that can support existing copper and fiber cabling. With 1/10GBASE-T support, the platform can deliver 10 Gigabit Ethernet over existing copper, enabling a low-cost upgrade from Cisco Catalyst 6500 series switches when used in an MoR or EoR configuration.
