Cisco Nexus 9300 Switches
Product Overview
Organizations everywhere recognize that changing application environments are creating new demands for the IT
infrastructure that supports them. Application workloads are deployed across a mix of virtualized and
nonvirtualized server and storage infrastructure, requiring a network infrastructure that provides consistent
connectivity, security, and visibility across a range of bare-metal, virtualized, and cloud computing environments:
●
Application instances are created dynamically. As a result, the provisioning, modification, and removal of
application network connectivity needs to be dynamic as well.
●
Business units demand accelerated application deployments. IT departments have to provide shared IT
infrastructure to address time-to-market needs and to increase their return on investment (ROI).
●
With organizations deploying a mix of custom, open source, and off-the-shelf commercial applications, IT
departments must manage both security and quality of service (QoS) for environments that support
multitenancy.
●
Applications have been transitioning over time to a less monolithic, scale-out, multinode model. IT
infrastructure that supports this model must scale with the speed of business and support both 10 and 40
Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.
®
The Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches include both modular and fixed-port switches that are designed to
overcome these challenges with a flexible, agile, low-cost, application centric infrastructure (ACI).
The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform is composed of fixed-port switches designed for top-of-rack (ToR) and middle-ofrow (MoR) deployment in data centers that support enterprise applications, service provider hosting, and cloud
computing environments. Cisco Nexus 9300 Series Switches are Layer 2 and 3 nonblocking 10 and 40 Gigabit
Ethernet and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)-capable switches with up to 1.28 terabits per second (Tbps) of
internal bandwidth.
The Cisco Nexus 9396PX Switch is a two-rack-unit (RU) switch that supports 960 Gbps of bandwidth across 48
fixed 10-Gbps SFP+ ports and 12 fixed 40-Gbps QSFP+ ports (Figure 1). The 40-Gbps ports are provided on an
uplink module that can be serviced and replaced by the user.
Figure 1.
Cisco Nexus 9396PX Switch
The Cisco Nexus 93128TX Switch is a 3RU switch that supports 1.28 Tbps across 96 fixed 1/10GBASE-T ports
and 8 fixed 40-Gbps QSFP ports (Figure 2). The 40-Gbps ports are provided on an uplink module that can be
serviced and replaced by the user. The uplink module is the same for both switches. If used with the Cisco Nexus
93128TX 8 out of the 12 40Gbps QSFP+ ports are available.

With the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series, organizations can quickly and easily upgrade existing data centers through
advanced optics that enable the use of existing 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber (a pair of multimode fiber strands) to
carry 40 Gigabit Ethernet to the aggregation layer or to the spine (in a leaf-and-spine configuration). Additionally,
the series can be deployed in MoR or end-of-row (EoR) configurations to meet the 10 Gigabit Ethernet
connectivity requirements of multiple racks or pods.
Used with Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders, the switches can support even more servers in a collapsed
access- and aggregation-layer design that supports 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity across multiple racks.
®
Cisco provides two modes of operation for the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series. Organizations can use Cisco NX-OS
Software to deploy the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series in standard Cisco Nexus switch environments. Organizations
also can use the ACI-ready hardware infrastructure to take full advantage of an automated, policy-based, systems
management approach.
Cisco Nexus 9300 Platform Features and Benefits
The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform switches are high-density, nonblocking, low-power-consuming switches designed
for ToR, MoR, or EoR deployment in enterprise data centers, service provider facilities, and large virtualized and
cloud computing environments.
The platform offers industry-leading density and performance with flexible port configurations that can support
existing copper and fiber cabling (Table 1). With 1/10GBASE-T support, the platform can deliver 10 Gigabit

Advanced optics
Cisco offers a pluggable 40 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP+ transceiver that enables customers to use existing 10
Gigabit Ethernet data center cabling to support 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. This technology facilitates
adoption of 40 Gigabit Ethernet with no cable infrastructure upgrade cost.
The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform is constructed with the components shown in Figure 3 and described in the
following sections. The Cisco Nexus 9396PX Switch is shown; other switches in the series have similar
components and configurable options.
Figure 3.
Cisco Nexus 9300 Platform Components (Cisco Nexus 9396PX Shown)
Power and Cooling
The switches are designed to adapt to any data center hot-aisle and cold-aisle configuration. The switches can be
installed with ports facing the rear, simplifying cabling of server racks by putting the ports closest to the servers
they support. The switches can be installed with the ports facing the front, simplifying the upgrade of existing racks
of switches in which network cables are wired to the front of the rack. The two deployment modes support front-toback cooling through a choice of power supplies and fan trays designed with opposite airflow directions, denoted
by red and blue tabs (see Figure 3).
To enhance availability, the platform supports 1+1 redundant hot-swappable 80 Plus Platinum-certified power
supplies and hot swappable 2+1 redundant fan trays.
Cisco Nexus 9300 Series Uplink Module
The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform requires an uplink module to be installed for normal switch operation. The Cisco
Nexus M12PQ uplink module provides up to 12 QSFP+ ports for 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to servers or
aggregation-layer switches (Figure 4). As specified in Table 1, the uplink module provides 8 active ports when
installed in the Cisco Nexus 93128TX, and 12 active ports when installed in the Cisco Nexus 9396PX.

Deployment Scenarios
The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform is a versatile data center switching platform with switches that can operate as ToR
data center switches, as MoR/EoR access-layer switches deployed with or without Cisco fabric extender
technology, and as leaf switches in horizontally scaled leaf-and-spine architectures. In the context of Cisco ACI,
the Cisco Nexus 9300 platform is designed for a leaf role.
Top-of-Rack Data Center Switch
The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform is designed with the port density, increased integrated buffer space, and
performance that make it particularly well suited as a ToR switch.
With its 48 fixed ports, the Cisco Nexus 9396PQ has enough ports to support the densest 1RU server
configurations. A pair of these switches can support redundant connectivity to each server in a rack with ports to
spare. In the configuration shown in Figure 5, the 480 Gbps of uplink capacity from each switch is sufficient to
provide full 10-Gbps bandwidth to each server with no oversubscription.
The Cisco Nexus 9300 platform can support multiple racks (or pods) of dense 1RU servers. For example, the 96port Cisco Nexus 93128TX can provide 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to all servers across two racks, with a pair
of these switches providing full redundancy. In less dense configurations with 2RU servers, the Cisco Nexus 9300
platform can support even more racks of servers in a MoR configuration.

End-of-Row Access-Layer Switch
In addition to being an excellent ToR switch, Cisco Nexus 9300 platform switches can be configured as MoR/EoR
access-layer switches. They can connect to almost any blade or rack server through 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet
connections including the following (Figure 6):
™
®
●
Third-party and standalone Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS ) rack servers
●
Third-party blade server chassis with chassis-resident switches or pass-through devices
●
Cisco UCS
The Cisco Nexus 9396PX can be used to connect both 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet-equipped fabric extenders,
Cisco Nexus B22 Blade Fabric Extenders in Dell and HP blade chassis (not shown), and 10 Gigabit Ethernetequipped servers and systems such as Cisco UCS. The Cisco Nexus 93128TX provides excellent connectivity for
large numbers 10 Gigabit Ethernet-equipped blade or rack servers equipped with 10GBASE-T ports.
Figure 6.

Technology
Collapsed Access and Aggregation Layers
Figure 7 shows how the Cisco Nexus 9300 platform can combine with Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders
to establish a centrally managed yet physically distributed collapsed access- and aggregation-layer switch.
Although each fabric extender resides physically at the top of each rack or within each blade server chassis, each
device is handled as a remote line card of the Cisco Nexus 9300 platform chassis, yielding massive scalability
through flexible bandwidth oversubscription but with only a single point of management.

Page 5 of 16
Using Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders at the top of each rack reduces the cabling complexity, overall
power consumption, and number of management points. This approach facilitates a “rack and roll” deployment
model in which individual server racks can be prewired using ToR fabric extenders, with the only connections
required to bring them into the data center being network uplink and power connections.
Figure 7.
Collapsed Access and Aggregation Layers with Cisco Fabric Extenders
Leaf-and-Spine Architecture
Cisco Nexus 9300 platform switches are excellent choices for leaf switches in a leaf-and-spine architecture
(Figure 8). The Layer 3 capabilities established by both the Cisco Nexus 9500 and 9300 platforms enable the two
to be used with Equal-Cost Multipath (ECMP) routing to accelerate the flow of traffic and reduce reconvergence
time in the event of a failure. The degree of redundancy in leaf-and-spine architectures delivers increased
availability with a high level of flexibility in workload placement.

Cisco NX-OS Software Overview
Cisco NX-OS is a data center purpose-built operating system designed for performance, resiliency, scalability,
manageability, and programmability at its foundation. Cisco NX-OS provides a robust and comprehensive feature
set that meets the demanding requirements of virtualization and automation in present and future data centers.
The Cisco Nexus 9000 Series uses an enhanced version of Cisco NX-OS Software with a single binary image that
supports every switch in the series, simplifying image management. The operating system is modular, with a
dedicated process for each routing protocol, a design that isolates faults while increasing availability. In the event
of a process failure, the process can be restarted without losing state. The operating system supports In-Service
Software Upgrade (ISSU), hot and cold patching, and online diagnostics. In the event of a supervisor module
failure (Cisco Nexus 9500 platform only), the software supports stateful switchover with continuous availability.
Main switch features include the following:
●
Power-On Auto Provisioning (POAP) automates the process of upgrading software images and installing
configuration files on Cisco Nexus switches that are being deployed in the network for the first time.
●
Intelligent Application Programming Interface (iAPI) provides operators with a way to manage the switch
through remote procedure calls (RPCs; JavaScript Object Notation [JSON] or XML) over HTTP/HTTPS
infrastructure.
●
Patching allows the Cisco NX-OS software to be upgraded and patched without any interruption in switch
operations.
●
Line-rate overlay support provides Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) bridging and routing at full line rate,
facilitating and accelerating communication between virtual and physical servers as well as between
multiple data centers in a campus environment.
Cisco NX-OS Features and Benefits
The software packaging for the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series offers flexibility and a comprehensive feature set while
being consistent with Cisco Nexus access switches. The default system software has a comprehensive Layer 2
security and management feature set and base level Layer 3 feature set. To enable advanced Layer 3 IP Unicast
and IP Multicast routing functions, you must install additional licenses. Table 3 lists the software packaging and
licensing available to enable advanced features.
