Enjoy High-Performance Ethernet Switching

Your next-generation data center has specific server networking needs. The Cisco Nexus 5010 1 rack unit (RU) switch provides an Ethernet-based Unified Fabric designed to meet those needs.

The Cisco Nexus 5010 Switch foundation is built upon:

  • High-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet
  • IEEE Data Center Bridging (DCB) for lossless Ethernet
  • Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
  • Virtual-machine-optimized networking

The switch delivers more than 500 Gbps of switching capacity with 20 fixed wire-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports that support data center bridging and FCoE. In addition, one expansion port supports one of the following modules:

  • 8-port 1/2/4 Gigabit Fibre Channel
  • 6-port 1/2/4/8 Gigabit Fibre Channel
  • 4-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet (DCB and FCoE) and 4-port 1/2/4 Gigabit Fibre Channel
  • 6-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet (DCB and FCoE)

A broad group of industry-leading partners supports the standards-based unified fabric architecture of the switch.
