Unified Fabric for Data Center Server Access

Your next-generation data center has specific server networking needs. The Cisco Nexus 5020 2 rack unit (RU) switch delivers an Ethernet-based Unified Fabric to meet those needs.

The Cisco Nexus 5020 Switch foundation is built upon:

  • High-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet
  • Data center bridging (DCB)
  • Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
  • Virtual-machine-optimized networking

This switch also delivers more than 1 Tbps of switching capacity with 40 fixed wire-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports that support DCB and FCoE. In addition, two expansion ports support any combination 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 open, standards-based unified fabric architecture of the Cisco Nexus 5020 Switch.
