Cisco Nexus 9300 Series- Nexus 9332PQ

Cisco introduce the Cisco Nexus 9300 Chassis for the new deployment of ACI infrastructure. Cisco Nexus 9300 Chassis is mainly used in the ACI for Leaf architecture. In ACI there is Leaf-Spine architecture and for both leaf and spine cisco nexus 9300 and Cisco Nexus 9500 Chassis is used.

ACI generally cisco technology for east-west traffic management, so that they are equidistance and can be managed easily.

Below are the various models in Cisco Nexus 9300 Chassis - Leaf. We are talking about the very first model from the below picture. It shows that Cisco Nexus 9332PQ model is 1RU Fixed ACI Leaf Switch with 32 fixed ports and 40Gbps Fabric switch ports. There are other model as well described below such as Cisco Nexus 9372PX model which also contains the 10 G Fabric modules with the 48 ports 40 Gbps fabric module and the third model is Cisco Nexus 9372TX model which you can understand the difference from the below chat.

Lets talk about Cisco Nexus 9332PQ model of Leaf architecture

  • There are about 32 QSFP+ ports in this chassis, which supports 40 Gigabits Ethernet speed.
  • It operates on 650-watt (W) AC, 930W DC, or 1200W HVAC/HVDC Power supply
  • Predictable high performance with latency of 1 to 2 microseconds with up to 1.28 Tbps of bandwidth enables customers to build a robust switch fabric scaling from as few as 200 10-Gbps server ports to more than 200,000 10-Gbps server ports.
  • It has increased buffer space upto 50 Mbps which allows better management of speed mismatch between access and uplink ports.
  • It is designed for availability such as Hot-swappable, redundant power supplies and fan trays increase availability
  • Cisco Nexus 9300 Chassis has Dual-core 2.5-GHz x86 CPUs with 64-GB SSD drive and 16 GB of memory provide enhanced network performance
