Design Considerations for Deploying

The Cisco Nexus 2332TQ fabric extender is a high-performance networking device designed for use in data centers and enterprise networks. It provides 32 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) connectivity using copper twisted-pair cables, and also supports 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40GbE) connectivity using quad small form-factor pluggable (QSFP+) transceivers.

When deploying the Cisco N2K-C2332TQ fabric extender, there are several design considerations that should be taken into account to ensure optimal performance and reliability. Some of the key design considerations are:

  • Upstream Switch Compatibility: The Cisco N2K-C2332TQ fabric extender should be deployed with a compatible upstream switch, such as a Cisco Nexus 5000 or 9000 series switch. The upstream switch should be configured to support the fabric extender and provide the necessary connectivity.
  • Fabric Extender Mode: The Cisco N2K-C2332TQ fabric extender can operate in either standalone mode or fabric extender mode. In fabric extender mode, it extends the switching capabilities of the upstream switch to the fabric extender, enabling it to be managed as part of the same network. It is recommended to use the fabric extender mode to simplify network management.
  • Redundancy: Redundancy is important for ensuring high availability and reliability. The Cisco N2K-C2332TQ fabric extender supports multiple redundancy options, including virtual PortChannels (vPC) and FabricPath. These options can provide redundancy at the fabric extender and upstream switch levels.
  • VLAN Configuration: The VLAN configuration should be carefully planned and implemented to ensure efficient use of network resources. The Cisco N2K-C2332TQ fabric extender supports multiple VLANs and can be configured to support VLAN trunking.
  • Power and Cooling: The Cisco N2K-C2332TQ fabric extender requires power and cooling to operate. The power and cooling requirements should be taken into account when deploying the fabric extender, and appropriate infrastructure should be put in place to support it.
  • Network Security: Network security should be a top priority when deploying the Cisco N2K-C2332TQ fabric extender. It is recommended to implement security measures such as access control, authentication, and encryption to protect against unauthorized access and data breaches.
  • Capacity Planning: Capacity planning is important to ensure that the network can support the required traffic volume and bandwidth requirements. The Cisco N2K-C2332TQ fabric extender can support up to 1.28 Tbps of throughput, but the actual throughput will depend on the specific configuration and traffic patterns of the network.

Fast Track Your Network

The Cisco N2K-C2332TQ is a fabric extender designed to increase network capacity and provide high-performance connectivity to servers and storage devices. It supports up to 32 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports and four 40 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP+ ports, providing a total throughput of up to 1.2 Tbps.

The N2K-C2332TQ is designed to work with Cisco Nexus switches, providing a highly scalable and flexible solution for data center and enterprise networks. It uses the Cisco Fabric Extender Technology (FEX), which allows for the extension of the parent switch fabric to the fabric extender, making it appear as if the extender is directly connected to the parent switch.

One of the main benefits of the N2K-C2332TQ is its high port density, which allows for the connection of many devices without the need for additional switches or modules. This can help simplify network architecture and reduce overall costs.

The N2K-C2332TQ also features advanced capabilities such as virtual PortChannel (vPC), which allows for the creation of a single logical interface across multiple physical links, providing increased redundancy and load balancing. It also supports Data Center Bridging (DCB), which enables lossless Ethernet for data center applications that require high reliability and low latency.

Supercharge Your Network

The Cisco N2K-C2332TQ is a high-performance fabric extender designed to enhance and expand your network's capabilities. With 32 ports and 40 Gigabit QSFP+ interfaces, it allows you to connect multiple devices to your network at ultra-fast speeds of up to 10 Gbps.

This device is perfect for businesses and organizations that require high bandwidth connectivity for their applications and services. It is also ideal for data centers and server farms that need to connect multiple servers to a single network. The Cisco N2K-C2332TQ is compatible with a wide range of Cisco Nexus switches, which means it can seamlessly integrate into your existing network infrastructure.

Some of the key features of the Cisco N2K-C2332TQ include:

  • High-performance: The device is designed to deliver high-bandwidth connectivity, which means it can handle large amounts of data and traffic at ultra-fast speeds.
  • Easy to manage: The Cisco N2K-C2332TQ comes with a user-friendly interface, which makes it easy to manage and configure the device. It also has advanced management features such as SNMP, RMON, and Syslog.
  • Scalable: With 32 ports and support for up to 24 fabric extenders per Cisco Nexus switch, the Cisco N2K-C2332TQ is highly scalable and can grow with your network as your business needs change.
  • Energy-efficient: The device is designed to be energy-efficient, which means it consumes less power and generates less heat than other devices in its class. This can help you save on energy costs and reduce your carbon footprint.
