Product Overview

Based on Cisco® Cloud Scale technology, this platform supports cost-effective, ultra-high-density cloud-scale deployments, an increased number of endpoints, and cloud services with wire-rate security and telemetry. The platform is built on modern system-architecture designed to provide high performance and meet the evolving needs of highly scalable data centers and growing enterprises.

The product is designed to support innovative technologies such as Media Access Control Security (MACsec), Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN), tunnel endpoint VTEP-to­-VTEP overlay encryption, CloudSec and Streaming Statistics Export (SSX)1. MACsec is a security technology that allows traffic encryption at the physical layer and provides secure server, border leaf, and leaf-to-spine connectivity. SSX is hardware-based, consisting of a module that reads statistics from the ASIC and sends them to a remote server for analysis. Through this application, users can better understand network performance without any impact on the switch control plane or CPU.

Cisco provides two modes of operation for Cisco Nexus® 9000 Series Switches. Organizations can use Cisco NX-OS Software to deploy the switches in standard Cisco Nexus switch environments (NX-OS mode). Organizations can also deploy the infrastructure that is ready to support the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI) platform to take full advantage of an automated, policy-based, systems-management approach (Cisco ACI mode).

Switch models

The Cisco Nexus 9364C Spine Switch is a 2-Rack-Unit (2RU) spine switch that supports 12.84 Tbps of bandwidth and 4.3 bpps across 64 fixed 40/100G QSFP28 ports and 2 fixed 1/10G SFP+ ports (Figure 1). Breakout cables are not supported. The last 16 ports marked in green are capable of wire-rate MACsec encryption.[1] The switch can operate in Cisco ACI Spine or NX-OS mode.

[3] 930W-DC PSU is supported in redundancy mode if 3.5W QSFP+ modules or Passive QSFP cables are used and the system is used in 40°C ambient temperature or less; for other optics or higher ambient temperatures, 930W-DC is supported with 2 PSU’s in nonredundancy mode only.

[4] HVAC/HVDC support is on the roadmap for future releases confirmed

[5] The 1100W DC power supply (NXA-PDC-1100W-PE/PI) is shipped with a connector already plugged into the power supply; a cable is therefore not required. For more product specification information, please see the Hardware Installation Guide here.
[6] NXK-ACC-KIT-1RU/2RU are on the roadmap for future releases.
