Cisco N7K-C7010-FAB-1 Cisco Nexus 7000 10-Slot Chassis 46Gbps/Slot Fabric Module for the Nexus 7000 10-Slot Chassis 46Gbps N7K-C7010-FAB-1 COUCAGVCAB
The Cisco® Nexus™ 7000 Switches comprise 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). Designed to meet the requirements of the most mission- critical data centers, it delivers continuous system operation and virtualized, pervasive services. The Cisco Nexus 7000 is based on a proven operating system, with enhanced features to deliver real-time system upgrades with no service disruption together with exceptional manageability and serviceability. Its innovative design is purpose built to support end-to-end data center connectivity, consolidating IP, storage, and interprocess communication (IPC) networks onto a single Ethernet fabric.
The Cisco Nexus 7000 Fabric Modules (Figures 1 and 2) for the Cisco Nexus 7000 Chassis are separate fabric modules that provide parallel fabric channels to each I/O and supervisor module slot. Up to five simultaneously active fabric modules work together delivering up to 230 Gbps per slot. Through the parallel forwarding architecture, a system capacity of more than 8 Tbps is achieved with the five fabric modules. The fabric module provides the central switching element for fully distributed forwarding on the I/O modules.
