Performance benchmarks of the Catalyst Network Module

The C9300-NM-2Q is a network module designed for use with the Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series Switches. It is a 2-slot module that provides two 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40G) ports for high-speed connectivity.

Performance benchmarks for the C9300-NM-2Q module can vary depending on a number of factors, including the configuration of the switch, the type of traffic being transmitted, and the overall network environment. However, Cisco provides some general performance specifications for the module that can be used as a baseline.

According to Cisco, the C9300-NM-2Q module has a forwarding bandwidth of up to 160 Gbps (80 Gbps per slot) and a maximum packet forwarding rate of 238 million packets per second (Mpps). These specifications indicate that the module is capable of high-speed, low-latency packet forwarding, which is essential for demanding enterprise and data center applications.

In addition to these specifications, Cisco also provides information on the power consumption and heat dissipation of the C9300-NM-2Q module. The module has a maximum power consumption of 100 Watts (W) and a typical power consumption of 84 W. It also has a maximum heat dissipation of 341 BTU per hour (BTU/hr) and a typical heat dissipation of 287 BTU/hr. These specifications can be useful for network administrators who need to plan for power and cooling requirements in their data center or network environment.

Future developments and upgrades

The C9300-NM-2Q Cisco Catalyst 2 Slots 40 Gigabit Ethernet Network Module is a high-performance network module that is designed to provide high-speed connectivity to your network. As a cutting-edge technology product, it is constantly being updated and upgraded with new features and capabilities. Some potential future developments and upgrades for this module could include:

  • Increased Bandwidth: As the demand for higher bandwidth continues to increase, there may be an upgrade to this module to support even faster speeds, such as 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) or higher.
  • Enhanced Security: The C9300-NM-2Q module already supports advanced security features like MACsec encryption, but there is always room for improvement. Future upgrades could include additional security features like Network Access Control (NAC) or Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) capabilities.
  • Improved Power Efficiency: Power consumption is always a concern in networking equipment, and there may be future upgrades to the C9300-NM-2Q module to improve its energy efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint.
  • Support for New Protocols: The networking industry is constantly evolving, and new protocols and standards are developed all the time. Future upgrades to this module could include support for emerging technologies like Software-Defined Networking (SDN) or Internet of Things (IoT) protocols.
  • Advanced Management Capabilities: As networks become more complex, it is essential to have advanced management capabilities to monitor and control the network effectively. Future upgrades to this module could include enhanced management capabilities, such as advanced analytics or automated configuration and provisioning.

Power Consumption of 2 Slots Module

The Cisco Catalyst C9300-NM-2Q network module is designed to expand the connectivity of the Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series Switches by providing two additional 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40G) QSFP+ ports. These ports can be used to connect the switch to other switches, routers, servers, or storage devices at high speeds, making it ideal for high-performance data center and campus network environments.

Power consumption is an important consideration when evaluating network modules, as it can affect the overall power consumption of the switch and the associated operating costs. The C9300-NM-2Q network module is designed to be highly energy-efficient, with a maximum power consumption of 20 watts.

This power consumption is spread across two 40G QSFP+ ports, which consume up to 10 watts each. The network module also includes a power-saving mode that can be enabled to reduce power consumption during periods of low network activity.

It is important to note that the actual power consumption of the C9300-NM-2Q network module will depend on various factors, including the configuration of the switch, the number and type of devices connected to the module, and the amount of network traffic being generated.

To ensure optimal power consumption and efficient operation, it is recommended to use Cisco-approved power supplies and cables when installing the network module. Additionally, it is important to regularly monitor power consumption and network performance to identify any potential issues and optimize the configuration as needed.
