High-Performance for Fabric Switch

The DS-C9148S-48PK9 Cisco 48 Ports Multilayer Fabric Switch is designed to provide high-performance network switching capabilities for enterprise and data center environments. Some of the features that contribute to the device's high-performance include:

  • High-speed switching: The device supports up to 480 Gbps of switching capacity, allowing it to handle large amounts of network traffic in real-time.
  • High-density ports: The device has 48 ports, providing a high-density of ports in a compact form factor.
  • Low Latency: The device has a low latency, which ensures that packets are processed quickly and efficiently.
  • Quality of Service (QoS): The device supports QoS, which allows for the prioritization of different types of traffic, ensuring that critical applications receive the necessary bandwidth.
  • Virtualization: The device supports virtualization features such as Virtual Port Channel (vPC) and Virtual Switching System (VSS) which allows for the creation of virtual switches within a single physical device, providing more flexibility in managing the network.
  • Multilayer Switching: The device supports multilayer switching, which allows for the efficient handling of both data and control plane traffic.
  • High-bandwidth interfaces: The device supports high-bandwidth interfaces such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) and 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40 GbE) which allows for a high-speed, high-bandwidth connection to the network.

All these features work together to ensure that the device can handle the demands of a busy network and maintain a high level of performance.

Resiliency and High Availability

The DS-C9148S-48PK9 Cisco 48 Ports Multilayer Fabric Switch is designed to provide resiliency and high availability to ensure that the network is always available and protected. Some of the features that contribute to the device's resiliency and high availability include:

  • Redundant power supplies: The device includes two redundant power supplies, which ensures that the device continues to operate even if one of the power supplies fails.
  • Redundant Fabric: The device supports redundant fabric, which allows multiple devices to work together to provide high availability and load balancing.
  • Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP): The device supports LACP, which allows for the bundling of multiple physical links to form a single logical link, providing redundancy and increased bandwidth.
  • Virtual Port Channel (vPC): The device supports vPC, which allows for the creation of a virtual Port Channel between two devices, providing redundancy and increased bandwidth.
  • Virtual Switching System (VSS): The device supports VSS, which allows for the clustering of multiple devices to provide high availability and load balancing.
  • Hot Swap: The device supports hot swap, which allows for the replacement of components without shutting down the device, reducing downtime.

All these features work together to ensure that the network remains protected and available at all times, even in the event of a failure.

Benefits and Features

The Cisco DS-C9148S-48PK9 is a 48-port multilayer fabric switch that provides a high-performance, flexible, and secure networking solution for data centers and other demanding environments. Some of its key benefits and features include:

  • High-performance switching: The switch supports up to 48 10 Gb Ethernet ports, providing a high-bandwidth backbone for data center networks.
  • Flexible deployment: The switch supports both Cisco FabricPath and standard Layer 3 routing protocols, allowing for flexible network design and deployment options.
  • Security features: The switch includes advanced security features such as access control lists (ACLs) and Cisco TrustSec, which can be used to secure data center networks against various types of threats.
  • Energy efficiency: The switch supports Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) and other energy-saving features, helping to reduce power consumption and operating costs.
  • Scalability: The switch supports virtualization technologies such as Cisco Application Virtual Switch (AVS) and Cisco Nexus 1000V, allowing for easy scalability and simplified network management.
  • High availability: The switch supports features such as redundant power supplies, hot-swappable fans, and other high-availability features to ensure that the network remains up and running even in the event of hardware failures.
  • Management and monitoring: The switch can be managed and monitored using Cisco's industry-leading network management tools, such as Cisco Prime Network and Cisco Nexus Data Broker, which provide real-time visibility and control over the network.
