Features and Capabilities

Ultra Low Latency Switching

The Nexus 3064 Switch offers:

  • Line-rate Layer-2 and Layer-3 ultra-low latency switching on all 64 ports
  • Phyless design on all ports to optimize latency
  • Throughput of 1.2 terabits per second (Tbps) and 950 million packets per second (Mpps)
  • Support for 1/10/40 Gbps and 100 Mbps speeds for maximum physical layer flexibility
  • Low typical power consumption of approximately two Watts per 10 Gigabit port

Ease of Operations

The modular, resilient Cisco NX-OS operating system is purpose-built with unrivaled support for Layer 3 unicast and multicast routing protocols. Manageability features promote ease of use and include the following:

  • Power On Auto Provisioning (POAP) which can enable touchless boot-up and configuration
  • EEM and Python scripting to enable automation and remote operations
  • Built-in EtherAnalyzer for monitoring and troubleshooting control-plane traffic
  • Advanced buffer monitoring capability to monitor traffic bursts and application traffic patterns in real time
  • Integration with Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) and XML management tools

The Cisco Nexus 3064 Switch is ideal for financial co-location deployments that require support for advanced unicast and multicast routing protocols and ultra-low latency.
