The Cisco Nexus 5600 platform is the third generation of industry’s leading Data Center Server-Access Nexus 5000 series of switches. Cisco Nexus 5600 is the successor of industry’s most widely adopted Cisco Nexus 5500 series switches that maintain all the existing Nexus 5500 features including LAN/SAN convergence (Unified Ports, FCoE), Fabric Extenders (FEX) and Fabric Path, but in addition brings integrated line-rate Layer 2/3 with true 40GE support, Cisco’s Dynamic Fabric Automation (DFA) innovation, NVGRE, VxLAN bridging & routing capability, network programmability & visibility, deep buffers and significantly higher scale & performance for highly virtualized, automated, and cloud environments. The Cisco Nexus® 5600 platform switches include both 1RU and 2RU switches built to overcome these challenges with a flexible, agile and energy efficient design.
Cisco Nexus 56128P Switch: The Cisco Nexus N5K-C56128P is a 2RU switch that supports 2.56 Tbps of bandwidth across 48 fixed 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports, and four 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports (Figure 3). The 48 ports on the base chassis support 10 Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE. The 4 QSFP ports support 40 Gigabit ethernet and FCoE.
The Cisco Nexus 56128P also offers two slots for a Generic Expansion Modules (GEM). The GEM for the Cisco Nexus 56128P provides 24 ports 10G Ethernet/FCoE or 2/4/8G Fibre Channel and 2 ports 40 Gigabit QSFP+ Ethernet/FCoE ports. The expansion module supports native 40 Gigabit Ethernet on the QSFP+ ports. The expansion module is supported on the Cisco Nexus 56128P chassis only and can be populated in either of the two expansion slots.
The Cisco Nexus 56128P has four N+1 redundant, hot-swappable powersupplies and four N+1 redundant, hot-swappable independent fans. The Cisco Nexus 56128P supports both Front-to-rear and reversible airflow options
The Cisco Nexus 56128P is VXLAN ready, with VXLAN support in bridging and routing modes on all ports at line rate, enabling the migration of virtual machines between servers across Layer 3 networks.
