Cisco Fabric Extender for HP BladeSystem
Overview
Cisco Fabric Extender for HP BladeSystem
The Cisco Fabric Extender for HP BladeSystem (Model B22HP) provides an extension of the Cisco Nexus switch fabric to the HP
server edge. Logically, it behaves like a remote line card to a parent Cisco Nexus 5000/6000/7000 series switch with the Fabric
Extender and the parent Nexus together forming a distributed modular system. The Cisco Fabric Extender for HP BladeSystem
forwards traffic to the parent Cisco Nexus Series Switch over eight 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks.
Low-cost uplink connections up to 10 meters can be made with copper Twin-ax cable, and longer connections up to 100 meters
can use the Fabric Extender Transceiver. Standard 10Gb optics such as SR and LR are also supported.
Downlinks to each server are auto-negotiating and work with all HP Ethernet and CNA modules allowing customers a choice of
Ethernet, FCoE or iSCSI connections. Being a seamless extension of the Nexus Switch allows traffic to be switched according to
policies established by the parent Nexus Series Switch with a single point of management.
