About the Cisco 5400 Enterprise Network Compute System

The Cisco 5400 Enterprise Network Compute System (ENCS) combines routing, switching, storage, processing, and a host of other computing and networking activities into a compact one Rack Unit (RU) box. This high-performance unit achieves this goal by providing the infrastructure to deploy virtualized network functions while at the same time acting as a server that addresses processing, workload, and storage challenges.

What's New

  • PXE Boot Mode: PXE Boot Mode is a new configuration option in the BIOS Advanced option list in CIMC, which can be configured like any other BIOS configuration option in the list. PXE boot mode allows you to configure PXE boot for legacy mode, UEFI mode, or disable it when not in use. Starting from NFVIS 4.5, BIOS 2.13 and CIMC, PXE boot is disabled by default.
