Advanced Switching Features and Applications
The Cisco Nexus 9396PX 48 Ports 10 Gigabit Ethernet Managed Switch is a high-performance, scalable switch that is ideal for data center environments. It offers advanced switching features and applications that help to optimize network performance and security. Some of these features and applications include:
- VXLAN: The Nexus 9396PX supports virtual extensible LAN (VXLAN) which allows for the creation of virtual networks that can span across multiple physical locations. This allows for greater flexibility and scalability in data center environments.
- OTV: The Nexus 9396PX also supports over-the-top (OTV) which allows for the extension of Layer 2 networks over a wide-area network (WAN) without the need for a VPN. This enables the creation of a single, unified network across multiple locations.
- FCoE: The Nexus 9396PX supports Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) which allows for the consolidation of data center networks by running Fibre Channel and Ethernet traffic on the same physical infrastructure.
- FabricPath: The Nexus 9396PX supports Cisco's FabricPath technology which allows for the creation of a highly resilient, multi-pathed network that can automatically reroute traffic in the event of a link failure.
- TrustSec: The Nexus 9396PX supports Cisco's TrustSec technology which allows for the creation of secure, policy-based networks by enforcing security policies on a per-user, per-application basis.
- Flexible NetFlow: The Nexus 9396PX supports Flexible NetFlow which allows for the collection and analysis of detailed network traffic information for troubleshooting and monitoring purposes.
- Automated LAN Fabric: The Nexus 9396PX supports Automated LAN Fabric which automates the configuration and management of network fabric to reduce operational costs and improve network reliability.
These advanced switching features and applications help to optimize network performance and security in data center environments. The Cisco Nexus 9396PX 48 Ports 10 Gigabit Ethernet Managed Switch is a powerful and reliable solution for data center networks.
Security and Network Hardening of 9000 Series Switch
- Enable SSH access: SSH should be enabled on the N9K-C9396PX to allow for secure remote access and management of the switch.
- Configure a strong password: A strong password should be set for the switch's management interface to prevent unauthorized access. Passwords should be at least 8 characters long and include a mix of letters, numbers, and special characters.
- Disable telnet and HTTP: Telnet and HTTP should be disabled on the N9K-C9396PX to prevent unauthorized access to the switch. SSH should be used for remote management instead.
- Enable AAA: Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) should be enabled on the N9K-C9396PX to ensure that only authorized users have access to the switch.
- Configure access control lists: Access control lists (ACLs) should be configured on the N9K-C9396PX to restrict access to certain areas of the switch and to control traffic flow.
- Enable port security: Port security should be enabled on the N9K-C9396PX to prevent unauthorized devices from connecting to the switch.
- Configure SNMPv3: Simple Network Management Protocol version 3 (SNMPv3) should be configured on the N9K-C9396PX to allow for secure monitoring and management of the switch.
- Disable unnecessary services: Any unnecessary services, such as FTP or TFP, should be disabled on the N9K-C9396PX to reduce the attack surface of the switch.
- Keep the switch software up-to-date: The switch software should be kept up-to-date to ensure that any security vulnerabilities are patched.
- Regularly monitor and audit the switch: Regular monitoring and auditing of the N9K-C9396PX should be performed to detect any security breaches or unauthorized access.
Quality of Service (QoS) Capabilities of Nexus Switch
The Cisco Nexus 9396PX 48 Ports 10 Gigabit Ethernet Managed Switch is equipped with advanced Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities that allow for efficient and effective traffic management. These capabilities include:
- Class-Based Weighted Fair Queuing (CBWFQ): This feature allows the switch to allocate bandwidth based on the priority of different traffic classes. This ensures that critical traffic is given priority over less important traffic.
- Low Latency Queuing (LLQ): This feature allows the switch to prioritize time-sensitive traffic such as voice and video, ensuring that these types of traffic are delivered with minimal delay.
- Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED): This feature helps to prevent network congestion by randomly dropping packets when the switch's buffer becomes full.
- Flexible NetFlow (FNF): This feature allows the switch to collect detailed information about network traffic, which can be used to identify and troubleshoot performance issues.
- Traffic Policing: This feature allows the switch to enforce bandwidth limits on specific traffic classes, ensuring that no single class consumes too much bandwidth.
