Product Overview

In today’s data centers, virtualization deployments have become commonplace, and this trend is increasing rapidly with the availability of 10 Gigabit Ethernet servers at attractive prices. The combination of increased adoption of these servers and applications with higher bandwidth requirements is increasing the need for dense 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet switching. Moreover, data center architecture is changing as application environments create new demands for IT infrastructure. Application workloads are deployed across a mix of virtualized and nonvirtualized server and storage infrastructure, requiring a network infrastructure that provides consistent connectivity, security, and visibility across a range of bare-metal, virtualized, and cloud computing environments.

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. The Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches are an important component of the Cisco Unified Data Center architecture, complementing existing Cisco Nexus switches. The Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches are energy-efficient switches that offer 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), providing integrated Layer 2 and 3 features at wire speed, and low latency of approximately 1 microsecond for any packet size. With a choice of front-to-back (port-side exhaust) and back-to-front (port-side intake) airflow options, the Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switch is designed for a broad range of traditional data center and large-scale virtualized cloud deployments.

The Cisco Nexus 5600 platform with Cisco® NX-OS Software operating system provides customers with features and capabilities that are widely deployed in data centers around the world.

With the Cisco Nexus 5600 platform, organizations can quickly and easily upgrade existing data centers through advanced optics that enable the use of existing 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber (a pair of multimode fiber strands) to carry 40 Gigabit Ethernet to the aggregation layer or to the spine (in a leaf-and-spine configuration). Additionally, the platform can be deployed in MoR or end-of-row (EoR) configurations to meet the 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity requirements of multiple racks or pods.

Used with Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders, the switches can support even more servers in a collapsed access- and aggregation-layer design that supports 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity across multiple racks.

Features and Benefits

The following are some of the primary features of the Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches:

Optimization for virtualization and cloud deployments: Today, high-performance servers deployed in the cloud can support many more virtual machines and workloads than ever before. The requirement to deploy new servers on demand puts additional strain on the network fabric. The Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches address this challenge by providing scalability and performance, making it an excellent platform for meeting current and future needs.

Density and resilience: Built for today’s data centers, the switches are designed just like the servers they support. Ports and power connections are at the rear, close to server ports, helping keep cable lengths as short as possible and delivering to rack servers benefits traditionally offered only on blade servers. Hot-swappable power and fan modules can be accessed from the front panel, where status lights offer an at-a-glance view of switch operation. Front-to-back or back-to-front cooling is consistent with server designs, supporting efficient data center hot- and cold-aisle designs. Serviceability is enhanced with all customer-replaceable units accessible from the front panel.

Energy efficiency: The Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches help data centers operate within their space, power, and cooling parameters while reducing their carbon footprints. The switch power supplies are also capable of maintaining 90 percent efficiency at load conditions of as low as 25 percent utilization. This capability allows the switch to make efficient use of power while still being appropriately sized to support the conditions of a full system load.

Low latency: Cut-through switching enables these switches to support approximately 1 microsecond of port-to-port latency for any packet size with features enabled.

Intelligent Cisco Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) and Encapsulated SPAN (ERSPAN): SPAN and ERSPAN can be used for troubleshooting and robust monitoring of traffic. The SPAN and ERSPAN capabilities are nondisruptive, with only extra bandwidth capacity used for SPAN and ERSPAN traffic. Enhancements include more efficient allocation of bandwidth to SPAN and ERSPAN traffic whereby any fabric bandwidth not used for data traffic can be allocated to SPAN or ERSPAN traffic. The switch can support up to 31 line-rate SPAN and ERSPAN sessions.

Flexible buffer management: The Cisco 5600 platform switches support a 25-MB packet buffer shared by every 3 ports of 40 Gigabit Ethernet or every 12 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The flexible buffer management capability allows for dynamic tuning of the shared and dedicated buffer size in the event of congestion.

Multicast enhancements: Line-rate Layer 2 and 3 multicast throughput for all frame sizes is also supported on these switches. They offer optimized multicast replication through the fabric and at the egress point. Support is provided for 32,000 multicast routes and for Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping tables in hardware. Multicast enhancements include flow-based hashing for multicast traffic over a PortChannel and enhanced Bidirectional Protocol-Independent Multicast (Bidir-PIM) support. The switch also supports IP-based forwarding for IGMP snooping.

Applications

The Cisco Nexus 5600 platform supports a number of application scenarios, making it a versatile data center option.

Fabric Extender Architecture: High-Density Fabric Extender Aggregator

Cisco Fabric Extender Technology (FEX Technology) enables you to build a single, modular fabric that extends from Cisco Nexus switches, to Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS®) servers, to adapters (Cisco Adapter FEX), and to virtual machines (Cisco Data Center VM-FEX). The Cisco FEX technology is based on the emerging standard IEEE 802.1BR. Designing the network using Cisco FEX technology provides flexibility, reduced cabling infrastructure, and a single point of management, helping customers scale their networks. When Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches are part of a fabric that includes Cisco Nexus 2200 platform fabric extenders, use the Cisco Nexus 2200 platform fabric extenders in single- or dual-connected mode using enhanced virtual PortChannel (vPC+) technology to two upstream Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches. Servers or end hosts can connect to single or dual Cisco Nexus 2200 platform fabric extenders using network interface card (NIC) teaming when the parent Cisco Nexus 5600 platform has vPC+ enabled.

Following are some common fabric extender Cisco Nexus 2000 Series and Cisco Nexus 5600 platform deployment options:

Rack servers with 100 Megabit Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, or 10 Gigabit Ethernet NICs; the fabric extender can be physically located at the top of the rack, and the Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switch can reside in the middle or at the end of the row, or the fabric extender and the Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switch can both reside in the middle or at the end of the row

Mixed Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet environments in which rack servers are running at either speed in the same rack or in adjacent racks

10 Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE deployments using servers with converged network adapters (CNAs) for unified fabric environments with the Cisco Nexus 2232PP 10GE and Cisco Nexus 2232TM-E 10GBASE-T Fabric Extender

1/10GBASE-T server connectivity with ease of migration from 1 to 10GBASE-T and effective reuse of structured cabling

Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet blade servers with pass-through blades

Low-latency, high-performance computing environments

Virtualized access

In addition to these options, the Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches provide unique value as a high-density fabric extender aggregation platform. For example, they can be used in conjunction with the Cisco Nexus 2248PQ, 2232PP, 2248TP, and 2232TM-E Fabric Extenders as a high-density switching system, consolidating 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections in a single management plane. In addition, a variety of blade fabric extender options can be aggregated into a Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches using 10 Gigabit Ethernet, providing a single point of management for blade server deployments.

Table 1 lists the fabric extenders that are supported with the Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches. Please refer to the Cisco Nexus 2200 platform data sheets and release notes for more information about the products.

Large-Scale Fabric (Layer 2 and 3): Leaf and Spine Architecture

Data center designs are evolving, with customers seeking to build large-scale non-blocking fabrics to accommodate different applications, creating patterns of heavy east-west and north-south traffic. The Cisco 5600 platform switches are well suited as a leaf or spine node in a Layer-2 or -3 fabric design. Leaf-and-spine layer designs using high-density and low-latency switches lead to flatter network architecture, allowing connections scaling from hundreds to more than 10,000 servers with high bidirectional bandwidth, and helping ensure low-latency fabric with a low hop count. The spine switches create a non-blocking, low-latency fabric, forwarding packets between leafs. The leaf switches provide connectivity to servers. Use of a highly meshed architecture helps ensure the highest possible network availability with little impact on customer traffic in the event of a failure. The Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches can be deployed as Layer 2 or Layer 3 spine or leaf switches, providing a high degree of design flexibility.

Multihop FCoE

Cisco Unified Fabric combines data center and storage networks to deliver a single high-performance, highly available, and scalable network. With the Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches, Cisco can support end-to-end data center convergence, from the server to storage, by delivering multihop FCoE capability in the data center. The FCoE capability complements the existing FCoE function on the Cisco Nexus 5600 platform. With this broad selection of standards-based FCoE switches, Cisco provides unified fabric support to both the access and core network layers, supporting all storage traffic (FCoE, Internet Small Computer System Interface [iSCSI], and Network-Attached Storage [NAS]) over a simplified infrastructure based on lossless 10- and 40-Gigabit Ethernet.

High-Performance Computing

The Cisco Nexus 5600 platform switches can be deployed as high-density Small Form-Factor (SFF) access-layer switches to consolidate a large number of 10 Gigabit Ethernet servers in deployments that call for only a small number of hops from the server to the upstream network to reduce latency. They have a high density of 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports per rack unit, approximately 1 microsecond of latency port to port for any packet size, integrated line-rate Layer 2 and 3 features, scalability, and integrated data analytics with programmability. They address the needs of high-performance computing (HPC) and high-frequency trading (HFT) environments, for which InfiniBand solutions lack management visibility and high performance of bulk data transfers across traditional applications.

The capability to function in all these capacities helps protect investments in the data center with a deployment model in which additional features can be enabled as they are needed.

The platform supports an innovative Twinax copper cabling solution that connects to standard QSFP connectors for in-rack use, and optical cabling for longer cable runs (Table 8).

For in-rack or adjacent-rack cabling, the Cisco Nexus 5600 platform supports QSFP+ direct-attach 40 Gigabit Ethernet copper cables, an innovative solution that integrates transceivers with Twinax cables into an energy-efficient, low-cost, and low-latency solution. QSFP+ direct-attach 40 Gigabit Twinax copper cables use only 1.5 watts (W) of power per transceiver and introduce approximately 0.1 microsecond of latency per link.

For longer cable runs, the Cisco Nexus 5600 platform supports multimode, short-reach optical QSFP+ transceivers. These optical transceivers use approximately 1.5W per transceiver and have a latency of approximately 0.1 microsecond.
