New Cisco Nexus 7000 Innovations
Building Networks Without Limits
New Cisco NX-OS features help accelerate your transition to a converged, virtualized cloud-enabled network.
Locator/ID Separation Protocol
Transform Your Network Architecture
With the Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) routing architecture for enterprises and service providers, add scalability and agility to your virtualization and cloud-computing environments.
Current IP routing and addressing architecture uses a single numbering space for device identify and location. LISP routing architecture splits the device identity and its location into two different numbering spaces.
This address separation:
Implementing LISP requires no change to host addressing.
Enable Highly Agile Networks
Take advantage of the LISP architectural benefits for:
Fibre Channel over Ethernet
Deploy End-to-End Unified Fabric
With the Cisco Nexus 7000 F-Series I/O module, you can now deploy Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) with a highly scalable director-class modular platform. This delivers a converged unified fabric for LAN and SAN traffic over Ethernet.
In addition, the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches support standards-based multihop FCoE topologies that help enable an end-to-end access to core converged fabric. With the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series, you can now deploy an end-to-end unified fabric to consolidate data center traffic onto a single, highly available Cisco NX-OS based network fabric, reducing complexity and total cost of ownership (TCO).
Multiprotocol Label Switching
Deploy Highly Secure Segmentation
With Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches, you get a comprehensive network-consolidation and virtualization feature set, with features such as:
MPLS provides enterprises and service providers another option for deploying highly secure segmentation over a consolidated network, enabling a cloud ready network infrastructure.
Increase Your Connectivity Options
Get an exceptionally high-density 10 Gigabit Ethernet solution by combining the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches with the Cisco Nexus 2232PP 10GE Fabric Extender.
For top-of-rack Gigabit Ethernet deployments, the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches also support:
With a single point of management for up to 1500 ports per Cisco Nexus 7000, you can simplify network deployment and management, and save IT operations time.
