Performance and Scale in a Small Form Factor

The Cisco Nexus 9372PX/9372PX-E Switches provides a line-rate layer 2 and layer 3 feature set in a compact form factor. It offers a flexible switching platform for both 3-tier and spine-leaf architectures as a leaf node. With the option to operate in Cisco NX-OS or Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) mode, it can be deployed in small business, enterprise, and service provider architectures.

Features and Capabilities


The Cisco Nexus 9372PX/9372PX-E Switches has 48 1/10-Gbps Small Form Pluggable Plus (SFP+) ports and 6 Quad SFP+ (QSFP+) uplink ports. All the ports are line rate, delivering 1.44 Tbps of throughput in a 1-rack-unit (1RU) form factor. Nexus 9372PX benefits are listed below.

Architectural Flexibility

  • Includes top-of-rack or middle-of-row fiber-based server access connectivity for traditional and leaf-spine architectures
  • Leaf node support for Cisco ACI architecture is provided in the roadmap
  • Increase scale and simplify management through Cisco Nexus 2000 Fabric Extender support

Feature Rich

  • Enhanced Cisco NX-OS Software is designed for performance, resiliency, scalability, manageability, and programmability
  • ACI-ready infrastructure helps users take advantage of automated policy-based systems management
  • Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) routing provides network services
  • Nexus 9372PX-E supports IP-based endpoint group (EPG) classification in ACI mode

Highly Available and Efficient Design

  • High-density, non-blocking architecture
  • Easily deployed into either a hot-aisle and cold-aisle configuration
  • Redundant, hot-swappable power supplies and fan trays

Simplified Operations

  • Power-On Auto Provisioning (POAP) support allows for simplified software upgrades and configuration file installation
  • An intelligent API offers switch management through remote procedure calls (RPCs, JSON, or XML) over a HTTP/HTTPS infrastructure
  • Python Scripting for programmatic access to the switch command-line interface (CLI)
  • Hot and cold patching, and online diagnostics

Investment Protection

  • A Cisco 40 Gb bidirectional transceiver allows for reuse of an existing 10 Gigabit Ethernet multimode cabling plant for 40 Gigabit Ethernet
  • Support for 1 Gb and 10 Gb access connectivity for data centers migrating access switching infrastructure to faster speeds
