The Cisco Nexus 9508 Switch is the first modular chassis-based switch in the Cisco Nexus 9500 platform. The Cisco Nexus 9508 is a modular, 8-slot, 13-rack-unit (13RU), Layer 2 and 3 nonblocking Ethernet and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)-capable switch. With more than 30 terabits per second (Tbps) of backplane bandwidth, the switch supports 1, 10, 40, and future 100 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces through a comprehensive selection of modular line cards. Configurable with up to 1152 10 Gigabit Ethernet or 288 40 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the switch provides sufficient capacity for both access- and aggregation-layer deployments.
Cisco provides two modes of operation for the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series. Organizations can use Cisco® NX-OS Software to deploy the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series in standard Cisco Nexus switch environments. Organizations also can use the application centric infrastructure (ACI)-ready hardware infrastructure to take full advantage of an automated, policy-based, systems management approach.
The Cisco Nexus 9508 is a modular chassis that supports up to eight line cards, two supervisor modules, two chassis controllers, three fan trays, six fabric modules, and eight power supplies. The switch supports comprehensive Layer 2 and 3 functions on nonblocking 1, 10, and 40 Gigabit Ethernet ports. The Cisco Nexus 9500 platform is FCoE capable and ready for 100 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces as they become available.
