Performance and Reliability

The Cisco Nexus 8 Ports Expansion Module (N5K-M1404) provides high-performance and reliability for organizations that need to expand their network capabilities. Here are some of the key aspects of performance and reliability for the N5K-M1404:

  • High-speed Interconnect: The module uses a high-speed interconnect to connect to the main switch fabric, providing low-latency and high-bandwidth connectivity for improved network performance. This ensures that data can be transferred quickly and efficiently between devices.
  • Jumbo Frame Support: The module supports jumbo frames, which are larger than standard Ethernet frames. This can help to reduce network overhead and improve network performance by reducing the number of frames that need to be processed by network devices.
  • Quality of Service (QoS) Support: The module supports Quality of Service (QoS) features, allowing network administrators to prioritize traffic based on its importance or type. This ensures that critical traffic, such as video or voice traffic, is given higher priority than less important traffic.
  • Redundancy: The N5K-M1404 supports redundancy features, such as the Virtual PortChannel (vPC) technology, which allows for redundant links between devices. This helps to improve network reliability by providing redundant paths for data to travel, ensuring that network traffic can continue to flow even if one link fails.
  • Hot-Swappable: The N5K-M1404 is hot-swappable, which means it can be replaced without disrupting network operations. This provides greater network availability, as components can be replaced or upgraded without causing network downtime.

Troubleshooting and Maintenance

The Cisco Nexus 8 Ports Expansion Module (N5K-M1404) requires regular maintenance to ensure optimal performance and reliability. Here are some tips for troubleshooting and maintenance of the N5K-M1404:

  • Regular Inspections: It's important to regularly inspect the expansion module and other components of the network infrastructure for any physical damage or signs of wear and tear. This can help identify any potential issues before they cause network problems.
  • Firmware and Software Updates: Keeping the firmware and software of the N5K-M1404 up to date can help ensure compatibility with other devices and improve performance and reliability. It's important to regularly check for updates and schedule updates during maintenance windows to minimize network downtime.
  • Monitor Performance Metrics: Network administrators should regularly monitor performance metrics for the N5K-M1404, such as traffic rates, error rates, and interface statistics. This can help identify any issues and allow for proactive troubleshooting.
  • Troubleshooting: If an issue arises, network administrators can use troubleshooting tools, such as the Cisco Nexus Troubleshooting Guide, to diagnose and resolve the problem. This may involve checking cables and connections, restarting devices, or adjusting settings.
  • Cleaning: Regularly cleaning the expansion module and other components of the network infrastructure can help prevent dust and debris from building up and interfering with performance. This can be done using compressed air or a soft brush.

Expansion and Scalability Options

The Cisco Nexus 8 Ports Expansion Module (N5K-M1404) provides expansion and scalability options for organizations that need to grow their network capabilities. Here are some of the key expansion and scalability options available with the N5K-M1404:

  • Modular Design: The N5K-M1404 is a modular expansion module that can be easily inserted into a compatible Cisco Nexus switch. This modular design allows for easy expansion and scalability of the network, as additional expansion modules can be added as needed.
  • Port Density: The N5K-M1404 provides eight additional ports for network connectivity, allowing for more devices to be connected to the network. This increased port density is especially useful for organizations that need to expand their network capabilities but don't have the space for additional switches.
  • Compatibility: The N5K-M1404 is compatible with a wide range of other Cisco Nexus switches, allowing organizations to expand their network capabilities while still using existing infrastructure. This compatibility also ensures that the N5K-M1404 integrates smoothly with other network components.
  • Virtual PortChannel (vPC) Technology: The N5K-M1404 supports Virtual PortChannel (vPC) technology, which allows for redundant links between devices. This technology can help improve network reliability and scalability by providing multiple paths for data to travel.
  • Layer 2 and Layer 3 Capabilities: The N5K-M1404 provides both Layer 2 and Layer 3 capabilities, allowing organizations to expand their network capabilities with both simple and complex network configurations.

About New Bulk Pack Products

New Bulk Pack products come with clamshell boxes and do not have any manufacturer warranty. Many times manufacturers disassemble whole units to use parts or pulled from a new system. Typically, this product doesn't come with software or instructions unless indicated and no Manufacturer’s genuine warranty. You can take note these are not brand new products.

For all your expansion module needs, we've got you covered with high-performance devices that increase functional capability and ease business processes.

You can talk to any of our staff and consult on what would be the best way forward when getting an expansion module to complement and enhance existing infrastructure, meet your immediate and future needs.

We have hardware level 12 with firmware 3.0 or higher modules that allow for the installation of up to 14 expansion modules below the base module for resilient performance. Expansion modules connect to the base module using USB Type-A connectors. That's not all, we have hardware level 11 and lower that supports up to 9 expansion modules.

With an expansion module, you get additional cartridge storage as well as tape drive capacity. We have expansion modules that contain up to two drives and two power supplies. You can choose to have the expansion module with tape drives and power supply installed so that it makes setup easier from your end. Expansion modules will need a power supply only if you install a tape drive in it. A single power supply can actually power two drives. However, you can add a second power supply for redundancy purposes. Without a tape drive, the expansion module is powered via the USB cable connected to the base module.

Expansion modules require 2U rack space and will be shipped with the necessary mounting hardware used to secure it to the rack.
