This compact family of switches supports multiple port speeds for a flexible combination of 1/10/25/40/50/100 Gbps connections. The Nexus 9200 switch features the widely deployed and industry-leading Cisco® NX-OS software operating system. Designed for programmable switch fabrics, this switch brings flexibility, mobility, and scalability to operators and IaaS/cloud providers, as well as customers who want to take advantage of the DevOps operating model and toolset. Provides a programmable network with automated configuration and management capabilities.

Cisco Nexus 9200 Series Switches Features

  • Excellent performance and scalability

This platform provides wire-speed Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching on all ports with bandwidths up to 7.2 Tbps and throughput exceeding 5.35 bpps.

This platform offers up to 30 MB of the shared buffer, making it the best choice for scalable data center and big data applications. The Nexus 9200 also fine-tunes non-drop queue buffer allocations and is, therefore, an ideal platform for IP storage design.

  • Virtual Extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN)

The platform provides local wire speed VXLAN routing.

Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) The Ethernet Virtual Private Network (EVPN) control plane provides scalable multi-tenancy and host mobility (see VXLAN Network with MP-BGP VPN Control Plane for details).

Cisco Nexus 92160YC-X Switch

Cisco Nexus 92160YC-X Switch

is a single-rack-unit (1RU) switch with 3.2 Tbps bandwidth and 2.5 bpps throughput. The 92160YC-X’s 48-port downlink port can be configured as a 1/10/25 Gbps port, giving you deployment flexibility and investment protection. The uplink can support up to four 100 Gbps or up to six 40 Gbps ports, or a combination of 10, 25, 40, and 100 Gbps connections, giving you flexible migration options.

it gives users a better understanding of their network traffic and telemetry data. See the latest software release notes provided here for all supported features. This new feature not only helps administrators improve network operations, but also provides a wealth of data resources to help improve the network infrastructure to increase return on investment (ROI).

Cisco Nexus 9272Q Switch

Cisco Nexus 9272Q Switch

is an ultra-high-density 2RU switch that supports 5.76 Tbps of bandwidth with 72 non-modular 40 Gbps QSFP+ ports with throughput exceeding 4.5 bpps. The 9272Q is equipped with up to 35 ports and can be converted to a total of 140 10 Gbps ports.

Cisco Nexus 92304QC Switch

Cisco Nexus 92304QC Switch

is an ultra-high-density 2RU switch that supports 6.1 Tbps bandwidth with 56 40 Gbps QSFP+ ports and eight 100 Gbps QSFP28 ports with throughput exceeding 4.8 bpps. The 92304QC can be converted to a total of 64 10 Gbps ports with up to 16 ports

Cisco Nexus 9236C Switch

Cisco Nexus 9236C Switch

a 1RU switch that supports 7.2 Tbps of bandwidth with 36 100 Gbps QSFP28 ports and throughput of over 5.7 bpps. Each port on the 9236C can be individually configured for one 100Gbps, four 10 Gbps, four 25 Gbps, one 40 Gbps, or two 50 Gbps. The switch’s compact form factor provides the industry’s best density and flexibility to meet the needs of data center backbone or aggregation connectivity.

Cisco Nexus 9200 Series Switches Benefits

High availability of hardware and software

1, 64-way equivalent multipath (ECMP) routing implements a layer 3 fat tree design. This feature helps organizations avoid network bottlenecks, improve resiliency, and scale up with virtually no network disruption.

2, Patching ensures uninterrupted upgrades in most situations.

3, The switch uses a hot-swappable power supply unit (PSU) and a fan with N+1 redundancy.

NX-OS operating system specially designed with various proven innovations

1, Open programmability to support built-in DevOps automation tools such as Puppet, Chef, and Ansible.

2, NX NX-API supports a common programming approach for Cisco Nexus switches.

Switch-free startup and configuration of the switch through Boot Auto Provisioning (POAP) dramatically reduces provisioning time.

3, The Python scripting engine is automated and remote in the data center.

4, Advanced Cache Monitoring reports real-time buffer utilization on a per-port and per-queue basis, enabling organizations to monitor traffic bursts and application traffic patterns.

5, Supports a complete suite of Layer 3 unicast and multicast routing protocols, including BGP, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), 6, Routing Information Protocol Version 2 (RIPv2), Protocol Independent Multicast Sparse mode (PIM-SM), Source Specific Multicast (SSM), and Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP).

7, Fragment routing allows the network to forward Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) packets and perform traffic management without Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) 8, Traffic Management (TE). It provides an alternative control plane for growing network scalability and virtualization.
