Cisco Network Switches

Our switches are constantly learning, constantly adapting, constantly protecting. Build a foundation for extraordinary outcomes at your data center, core, or edge. This is the new era in intent-based networking.

Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switch Chassis

Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switch Chassis

The Cisco Nexus 9500 Series modular switches support a comprehensive selection of line cards and fabric modules that provide 1-, 10-, 25-, 40-, 50-, 100-, 200-, and 400-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. Using these line cards the Cisco Nexus 9500 Series switches can be configured with up to.

1.     256 400-Gigabit Ethernet ports (or)

2.     524 200-Gigabit Ethernet ports# (or)

3.     1024 100-Gigabit Ethernet ports (or)

4.     2048 50-Gigabit Ethernet ports (or)

5.     1024 40-Gigabit Ethernet ports (or)

6.     2304 25-Gigabit Ethernet ports (or)

7.     2304 1/10-Gigabit Ethernet ports

The supervisor, system controller, power supplies, and line cards are common across all three switches. Each switch, however, has unique fabric modules, and fan trays that plug in vertically in the rear of the chassis.

Features and benefits



High performance

The Cisco Nexus 9500 Series switch delivers nonblocking performance at a latency of 5 microseconds or less at 400-, 100-, 50-, 40-, 25-, 10-, and 1-Gigabit Ethernet speeds. This enables customers to build robust and scalable high-speed fabrics that can support several thousands of high-speed access ports.


The Cisco Nexus 9500 Series switches support extensive switch and flow telemetry capabilities that provide extensive real-time visibility into switch and fabric states.

High-density 1-, 10-, 25-, 40- and 50-Gigabit Ethernet access configuration

Organizations can transition from low-speed (100-Megabit Ethernet and 1-Gigabit Ethernet) server access designs to high-speed (1-, 10-, 25-, 40-, and 50-Gigabit Ethernet) server access designs with the same port density.

High-density 10-, 40-, 100- and 400-Gigabit Ethernet aggregation and spine configuration

The Cisco Nexus 9500 Series Switches help organizations transition from 1- and 10-Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure to 10-, 40-, 100-, and 400-Gigabit Ethernet infrastructures to support the increased bandwidth demands of scale-out, multinode application environments. The compatibility of 400-Gigabit Ethernet QSFP-DD modules, 100-Gigabit Ethernet QSFP28 modules, and 40-Gigabit Ethernet QSFP+ modules enables the migration and coexistence of 40-, 100- and 400-Gigabit Ethernet ports in the fabric.

High availability, reliability, and scalability

The Cisco Nexus 9500 Series Switches are designed with redundant supervisors, system controllers, power supplies, and fan trays, which eliminate any single point of failure in the chassis. These switches also support up to 6 fabric modules, which provide redundancy and graceful degradation of switching capacity in the event of fabric module failures. All transceivers are pluggable to support the highest possible Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) for the switch.

Designed for the future

The Cisco Nexus 9500 Series Switches are designed for future expansion with the capability to support higher speed ports and more bandwidth.

Power efficiency

The Cisco Nexus 9500 Series Switches are the first switch chassis designed without a midplane. The line cards and fabric modules connect directly. This revolutionary design provides optimal front-to-back airflow and helps the switch operate with less power. In addition, all Cisco Nexus 9500 Series switch power supplies are rated at or higher than 80PLUS Platinum for AC inputs and equivalent efficiency for DC inputs.

The typical power consumption per 10-Gigabit Ethernet port is less than 3.5 watts (W).

The typical power consumption per 40- and 100-Gigabit Ethernet port is less than 14W and 22W respectively.
