Usage Guidelines

The following Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders are supported on a Cisco Nexus 6000 Series switch:

Cisco Nexus 2148T Fabric Extender—It has four 10-Gigabit Ethernet fabric interfaces for its uplink connection to the parent Cisco Nexus switch and 48 1000BASE-T (1-Gigabit) Ethernet host interfaces for its downlink connection to servers or hosts.

Cisco Nexus N2224TP Fabric Extender—It has two 10-Gigabit Ethernet fabric interfaces with  small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) interface adapters for its uplink connection to the parent  Cisco Nexus switch and 24 1000BASE-T (1-Gigabit) Ethernet host interfaces for its  downlink connection to servers or hosts. It does not support Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE).

Cisco Nexus 2232P Fabric Extender—It has eight 10-Gigabit Ethernet fabric interfaces with small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) interface adapters for its uplink connection to the parent Cisco Nexus switch and 32 10-Gigabit Ethernet fabric interfaces with SFP+  interface adapters for its downlink connection to servers or hosts.

Cisco Nexus 2232TM Fabric Extender—It has eight 10-Gigabit Ethernet fabric interfaces with small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) interface adapters for its uplink connection to the parent Cisco Nexus switch and 32 10-Gigabit BASE-T Ethernet fabric interfaces for its downlink connection to servers or hosts.

Cisco Nexus 2248T Fabric Extender—It has four 10-Gigabit Ethernet fabric interfaces with  SFP+ interface adapters for its uplink connection to the parent  Cisco Nexus switch and 48 1000BASE-T (1-Gigabit) Ethernet host interfaces for its  downlink connection to servers or hosts.

Cisco Nexus 2248PQ Fabric Extender—It has 48 10-Gigabit Ethernet host interfaces with SFP+ interface adapters and 16 10-Gigabit Ethernet fabric interfaces corresponding to 4 QSFP interface adapters for its uplink connection to the parent switch.
