Designed to deliver the benefits of both top-of-rack and end-of-row configurations, the Cisco Nexus 2148T Fabric Extender features:

  • A front-to-back cooling system that is compatible with data center hot- and cold-aisle designs
  • Switch ports at the rear of the unit in close proximity to server ports
  • Access to all user-serviceable components from the front panel

The Cisco Nexus 2148T also provides:

  • Significant scalability for supporting Gigabit Ethernet environments with flexible control of oversubscription
  • A clear way to protect your technology investments into the future with an easy migration path to low-latency 10 Gigabit Ethernet and a unified network fabric that supports LAN, SAN, and high-performance computing networks over a single access-layer connection
  • Support for the same switch features across the entire access layer through centralized management
