More Information of this Item

The Cisco Nexus 2348UPQ Fabric Extender (N2K-C2348UPQ) is a network device that extends the capabilities of a Cisco Nexus switch by providing additional ports and line-rate, low-latency fabric connectivity. It connects to a parent Nexus switch via a 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink and provides 48 additional 10 Gigabit Ethernet or FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) ports for server connectivity. The Fabric Extender acts as an extension of the parent Nexus switch, allowing for simplified management and deployment of the network infrastructure. It also supports advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS) and security features. This device is ideal for use in data center environments where high-density server connectivity and low-latency are required.

Performance and Reliability

The Cisco Nexus 2348UPQ Fabric Extender (FEX) is a high-performance, highly reliable device that provides a flexible and scalable solution for connecting servers and other network devices to a Cisco Nexus switch. It has 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 4 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40G) ports, which can be used for both data and storage traffic. It also has a number of features that help to ensure high availability and performance, such as hitless failover, redundant power supplies, and a non-blocking architecture. The N2K-C2348UPQ also has a feature called Fabric Extender Technology (FET) that allows it to be managed as an extension of the parent switch, simplifying the overall network design and management.

Compliant Standards

The Cisco Nexus 2348UPQ Fabric Extender is compliant with a number of industry standards that ensure interoperability and compliance with regulations. Some of the key standards that the model is compliant with include:

  • IEEE 802.3: This standard defines the specifications for Ethernet, including the physical layer and data link layer. The model supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet, which is defined by the IEEE 802.3ae standard.
  • Fibre Channel (FC): This standard defines the specifications for Fibre Channel (FC) networks, including the physical layer and data link layer. The model supports Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), which is defined by the Fibre Channel Industry Association (FCIA).
  • Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE): This standard defines the specifications for reducing power consumption in Ethernet networks. The model supports EEE, which can help reduce power consumption and costs.
  • Data Center Bridging (DCB): This standard defines the specifications for providing enhanced traffic management and reliability in data center networks. The N2K-C2348UPQ supports DCB, which can help improve the performance and reliability of data center networks.
  • Quality of Service (QoS): This standard defines the specifications for providing different levels of service for different types of network traffic. The model supports QoS, which can help ensure that mission-critical applications receive the bandwidth and low-latency they need.
  • IEEE 802.1Q: This standard defines the specifications for Virtual LANs (VLANs), which are used to segment a single physical LAN into multiple logical LANs. The model supports VLAN tagging, which allows for the creation and management of multiple VLANs.
