Performance and Scalability
The N9K-X9636Q-R Cisco Nexus 9500R 36 Ports 40G QSFP+ Linecard is a high-performance, high-density linecard designed for the Cisco Nexus 9500R Series switches. It offers a range of performance and scalability features, including:
- High Port Density: The linecard supports up to 36 40G QSFP+ ports, providing high port density for large-scale data center networks. This allows network administrators to connect more devices to the network, improving overall network capacity and reducing the need for additional hardware.
- High Bandwidth: The linecard offers a total bandwidth of 1.44 Tbps, which is distributed across the 36 40G QSFP+ ports. This high bandwidth capacity enables the linecard to handle large amounts of data traffic and ensures smooth network performance, even during peak usage periods.
- Low Latency: The linecard provides low latency for data transmission, ensuring fast and efficient data processing. This is particularly important for data center networks that require real-time data processing, such as financial trading or scientific research.
- Advanced Traffic Management: The linecard supports advanced traffic management features, such as quality of service (QoS) and access control lists (ACLs), which allow network administrators to prioritize traffic and ensure that critical data is delivered in a timely manner.
- Scalability: The linecard is designed for scalability, allowing network administrators to expand their network as needed. It supports virtual PortChannels (vPCs) and FabricPath, which enable network administrators to create a flexible and scalable network topology that can adapt to changing business needs.
Management and Configuration
The N9K-X9636Q-R Cisco Nexus 9500R 36 Ports 40G QSFP+ Linecard can be managed and configured through the Cisco Nexus 9000 series switches' Cisco NX-OS software. The following are the different management and configuration options available for this linecard:
- Command-Line Interface (CLI): The CLI is a text-based management interface that provides access to the Cisco NX-OS software. Administrators can use the CLI to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot the linecard.
- Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP): SNMP is a protocol that allows network administrators to manage and monitor network devices remotely. The linecard supports SNMP versions 1, 2c, and 3, enabling administrators to monitor the linecard's status and performance.
- Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM): DCNM is a management tool that provides a central point of management for Cisco Nexus switches, including the Nexus 9500R series. It offers a web-based graphical user interface (GUI) that simplifies network management tasks, such as device configuration, monitoring, and troubleshooting.
- Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI): ACI is a software-defined networking (SDN) solution that provides centralized policy-based management for data center networks. The linecard supports ACI, enabling administrators to configure and manage the linecard using ACI policies.
- Programmability: The linecard supports a range of programmability options, including REST APIs, Python scripting, and Linux shell access. These options enable administrators to automate configuration and management tasks, reducing the risk of human error and improving network efficiency.
Security Features and Best Practice
The N9K-X9636Q-R Cisco Nexus 9500R 36 Ports 40G QSFP+ Linecard offers a range of security features to protect data center networks from unauthorized access and data breaches. The following are some of the security features and best practices that can be implemented to enhance the linecard's security:
- Role-Based Access Control (RBAC): RBAC is a security feature that restricts access to network resources based on the user's role. It enables network administrators to assign specific roles to users, limiting their access to only the resources they need to perform their job functions. This reduces the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive network resources.
- Access Control Lists (ACLs): ACLs are a security feature that allows network administrators to control traffic flow by filtering packets based on various criteria, such as source and destination addresses, ports, and protocols. They can be used to block traffic from unauthorized sources and prevent unauthorized access to sensitive resources.
- Port Security: Port security is a feature that limits the number of MAC addresses that can be learned on a switch port. This helps prevent unauthorized access to the network by limiting the number of devices that can connect to a given port.
- Encryption: Encryption is a process of converting data into a form that is unreadable without a key or password. The linecard supports various encryption protocols, such as Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to encrypt data in transit and prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data.
- Firmware Upgrades: Regular firmware upgrades can help ensure that the linecard is protected against known security vulnerabilities. Network administrators should regularly check for firmware updates and install them as soon as they become available.
Best practices for securing the N9K-X9636Q-R Cisco Nexus 9500R 36 Ports 40G QSFP+ Linecard include implementing RBAC, ACLs, and port security, using encryption to protect data in transit, and regularly upgrading firmware to ensure that known security vulnerabilities are addressed.

About New Bulk Pack 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.
