Data Sheet
Cisco Nexus 7000 Series 8-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Module with
XL Option
Product Overview
®
The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series 8-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Module with XL Option (Figure 1) is a cost-effective, highly
scalable, high-performance module designed for mission-critical Ethernet networks. The module uses two M1-XL
forwarding engines that feature a larger Forwarding Information Base (FIB). The module also supports a wide range
of X2 optics, allowing deployment flexibility in various type of networking environment.
The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches are a modular data center–class product line designed for highly scalable 10
Gigabit Ethernet networks, with a fabric architecture that scales beyond 15 terabits per second (Tbps), providing
support for future 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. Designed to meet the requirements of the most missioncritical network environments, the switches deliver continuous system operation and virtualized pervasive services.
The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series is powered by the proven Cisco NX-OS operating system, with enhanced features to
deliver real-time system upgrades with exceptional manageability and serviceability. Its innovative unified fabric
design is purpose-built to support consolidation of IP, storage, and interprocess communication networks on a single
Ethernet fabric.

Features and Benefits
The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series 8-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Module with XL Option has a number of key features that
are designed to enable flexible deployment and support for environments requiring the highest performance and rich
features. With an optional Scalable Feature License, the module can operate in the enhanced XL mode, which
enables utilization of the full forwarding table, essential for large-scale deployments such as Internet peering
environments. This larger FIB table can support multiple copies of the full Internet route table for use in Internetfacing deployments with Virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) and virtual device context (VDC) support. The ability to
operate in either non-XL or XL mode makes this module extremely flexible for many types of networking
environments, without requiring a hardware module change or upgrade, and delivers a lower total cost of ownership
(TCO). The 8-port module supports a broad range of optics, allowing deployment in various types of situations, from
a long reach intersite over single-mode fiber to short and medium reaches over multimode fiber for data center and
campus environments. The fabric interface on the 8-port module delivers 80 Gbps of bandwidth in each direction.

Data Sheet
All Cisco Nexus 7000 M-Series I/O modules contain integrated forwarding engines. The M1-XL forwarding engines
on the 8-port module are part of the Cisco Nexus 7000 M1-Series of forwarding engines. The M1-XL forwarding
engine is based on the M1 engine, incorporating larger FIB and access control list (ACL) tables. The module is fully
compatible with, and offers feature consistency with, all existing M1 modules. The performance specifications for the
Cisco Nexus 7000 Series 8-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Module with XL Option operating in non-XL and XL modes are
described in Table 1.

Each M1-XL forwarding engine delivers up to 60 million packets per second (Mpps) of Layer 2 and Layer 3 IPv4
unicast forwarding or 30 Mpps of IPv6 unicast forwarding across all ports. The 8-port module has dual M1-XL
forwarding engines and can deliver up to 120 Mpps of Layer 2 and Layer 3 IPv4 unicast forwarding or 60 Mpps of
IPv6 unicast forwarding across all ports of a single I/O module. The distributed architecture, with forwarding engine
integrated into each module, scales the forwarding performance of the chassis linearly by the number of I/O modules
employed. The 18-slot chassis with sixteen 8-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Modules with XL Option can deliver up to 1.92
billion packets per second (Bpps) of IPv4 unicast forwarding. Multicast forwarding is built into the I/O module
performing egress replication.
The M1-XL forwarding engine also delivers ACL filtering, marking, rate limiting, and NetFlow with no effect on
performance. Powerful ACL processing supports up to 64K entries per module in non-XL mode or 128K entries per
®
module in XL mode, where entries can address Layer 2, 3, and 4 fields in addition to new Cisco metadata fields that
employ security group tags (SGTs).
The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series 8-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Module with XL Option offers exceptional security, with
integrated hardware support for the Cisco TrustSec solution. This includes line rate data confidentiality, data
integrity, and ACL processing for SGTs. Data confidentiality and integrity conform to the IEEE MAC security standard
(IEEE 802.1AE [MACsec]). All eight ports on the module support the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) cipher,
using a 128-bit key. New security ACLs are enhanced through hardware support for Cisco metadata headers
capable of carrying SGTs. Security group ACLs (SGACLs) use SGT information to provide hardware-based
enforcement of security policies. This removes dependencies on IP addresses, thus improving scalability and
simplifying manageability.
The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series 8-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Module with XL Option buffers data in virtual output queues
before the data flows to the fabric. The data flow is controlled by a central arbiter on the supervisor module, using a
credit-based buffer design. This architecture offers a lossless fabric that delivers quality of service (QoS) and
fairness across all ports, even during congestion.

with XL Option.
