As data centers continue to evolve, the application requirements for fiber-optic communication networks are constantly evolving. As a core component of a fiber-optic network, a switch is selected on the basis of many factors such as security and efficiency. Many users choose Cisco switches to adapt to a variety of environments and applications. The following C-LIGHT will give you a detailed introduction to the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches and their interconnect solutions.

Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches
In today's data centers, IT departments have a dual mission of achieving business agility and lowering total cost of ownership (TCO). With lower power consumption, industry-leading price/performance, and two modes of operation, the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series is designed to accommodate the ever-increasing bandwidth demands and provide customers with the flexibility they need to implement data center fabric changes that are aligned with their business needs. The Cisco Nexus® family is Cisco's flagship switching portfolio in the data center and has become the benchmark for innovation in the networking industry. Complementing the existing Cisco Nexus family of switches, the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches are the foundation of Cisco Application Center Infrastructure (ACI). The Cisco Nexus 9000 Series includes a range of modular and non-modular switches with scalability, high performance, low power consumption, and complete Virtual Extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN) and network virtualization using universal routing encapsulation (NVGRE) function.

Models for the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches
The Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches are available in three models: the Cisco Nexus 9508 switch, the Cisco Nexus 9396PX switch.

Cisco Nexus 9508 Switch

The Cisco Nexus 9508 switch is a 13 rack unit (13RU) with port rate Modular switches for 1, 10, and 40 Gigabit Ethernet with eight linear boards and six switch fabric module slots. With 30 Tb/s (Tbps) of Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching performance, it provides up to 288 non-blocking 40 Gigabit Ethernet ports or 1152 non-blocking 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports for each fully populated system. This switch does not have a midplane.

As a result, the inside of the chassis has excellent airflow and cooling capacity, and can be easily upgraded to the future 100 Gigabit Ethernet mode.The Cisco Nexus 9500 platform is fully redundant with two control engines, two system controllers, and three fan tray, and up to four power supplies.


 Cisco Nexus 9396PX Switch

The Cisco Nexus 9396PX Switch is a 2RU 1, 10, and 40 Gigabit Ethernet Modular switch with 960 Gbps Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding capabilities. The Cisco Nexus 9396PX Switch has 48 10 Gigabit Ethernet enhancements.Small form factor hot-swappable (SFP+) ports and 12 40 Gigabit Ethernet enhanced Quad SFP (QSFP+) ports.

Interconnect Solutions for Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches
The Cisco Nexus 9000 series switches are mainly available with 1/10/40G Ethernet ports, so you can use 40G QSFP+ optical modules and SFP+ optical modules for interconnection. The following table lists the suitable optical modules for the Cisco Nexus 9000 series switches:


The Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches support the operation of virtual environments based on traditional network architectures, greatly optimizing the performance of the entire network. According to the customer's specific program requirements, the company will recommend a cost-effective compatible Cisco optical module to further reduce investment and operating costs while meeting customer needs.
