Optimize Performance With Cisco Nexus Switches

Technology is ever-changing, and at Townsend Networks so are we. We’ve added the full line of used Cisco Nexus Series switches to our catalog, giving you access to the most advanced hardware on the market. Each series offers different benefits and functionality, and this introductory guide will help you distinguish between each of the Cisco Nexus Switches.

Cisco Nexus 2000

The Cisco Nexus 2000 Series are fabric extenders designed to connect to higher-end switches, such as the 6000 or 7000 series. They offer strong connectivity, a single point of management, and reduced costs and size of your data center.

Cisco Nexus 3000

Built for flexibility, the 3000 Series comes equipped with Python scripting, Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEM), and XML management tools. It offers the high-performance and functionality to support mobility and tenant isolation.

Cisco Nexus 5000

Cisco’s Nexus 5000 Series can support 10 GE top-of-rack access deployments and delivers broad connectivity support. It also supports Layer 2 and Layer 3 features and hardware for LAN, SAN, and VXLAN.

Cisco Nexus 6000

If you’re looking for a more compact system, the 6000 Series may be a good fit. Although it’s designed for space-constrained aggregation deployments, it doesn’t limit your functionality. The platform supports hardware VXLAN and is NVGRE-capable, and also works with Cisco Fabric Extenders for LAN and SAN convergence. The 6000 Series also includes a comprehensive analytics toolkit for added value.

Cisco Nexus 7000

This series is ideal for data center access, aggregation, and core deployment. It’s among Cisco’s most advanced offerings, and as such, provides extremely comprehensive data center features and programmability. It’s a remarkably powerful series for the ultimate in performance.

Cisco Nexus 9000

When it comes to the highest switching capacity per slot (1.92 Tb) and a strong switching foundation for ACI, the 9000 Series delivers. It can operate in standard Cisco NX-OS and ACI mode for extraordinary flexibility, and offers full virtual extensible LAN bridging, routing, and gateway support. 9000 Series models also deliver high-density GE (1, 10, and 40; 100 in the future).

For other state-of-the-art data center options, Townsend Networks also offers used Brocade MLXe models and used Juniper MX Series. The Brocade line delivers high performance, scale, and reliability, while the Juniper MX Series provides massive capacity, density, and performance.
