Redundancy and High Availability Features
The Cisco N9K-X9736C-FX Nexus 9500 36 Ports Line Card Expansion module has a number of redundancy and high availability features to ensure that the network remains available and resilient in the event of component or link failure. Some of the key features include:
- Redundant power supplies: The N9K-X9736C-FX expansion module has two hot-swappable power supplies, which provide power redundancy in case one of the power supplies fails.
- Redundant fabric modules: The Nexus 9500 series switches have a modular design that allows for the insertion of multiple fabric modules for additional bandwidth and redundancy. The N9K-X9736C-FX expansion module has three fabric module slots, allowing for the installation of up to three redundant fabric modules for added redundancy.
- Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP): LACP allows multiple links between two devices to be aggregated into a single logical link, providing increased bandwidth and redundancy. The N9K-X9736C-FX expansion module supports LACP, allowing for link aggregation between the expansion module and other devices on the network.
- Virtual PortChannel (vPC): vPC is a feature that allows for two Nexus switches to be connected together to form a single logical switch. The N9K-X9736C-FX expansion module supports vPC, allowing for redundancy and high availability at the switch level.
- Cisco FabricPath: FabricPath is a Cisco proprietary technology that provides a scalable and resilient Layer 2 network fabric. The N9K-X9736C-FX expansion module supports FabricPath, allowing for a highly available and resilient network.
- Graceful Insertion and Removal (GIR): The N9K-X9736C-FX expansion module supports GIR, which allows for the insertion and removal of the expansion module without disrupting the network.
- Non-Stop Forwarding (NSF): NSF is a feature that allows for the forwarding of packets to continue during a network failover event. The N9K-X9736C-FX expansion module supports NSF, allowing for a seamless failover in the event of a component or link failure.
These redundancy and high availability features of the Cisco N9K-X9736C-FX Nexus 9500 36 Ports Line Card Expansion module help ensure that the network remains available and resilient, even in the face of unexpected events.
Security Features and Protocols Supported
The Cisco N9K-X9736C-FX Nexus 9500 36 Ports Line Card Expansion module is a high-performance networking device that is designed to provide advanced security features and protocols. Some of the security features and protocols supported by this module are:
- Access Control Lists (ACLs): ACLs are used to filter network traffic based on specific criteria, such as source and destination IP addresses, protocol type, and port number. The Cisco N9K-X9736C-FX Nexus 9500 36 Ports Line Card Expansion module supports both standard and extended ACLs.
- Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF): VRF is a technology used to create multiple virtual routing instances within a single physical router. The Cisco N9K-X9736C-FX Nexus 9500 36 Ports Line Card Expansion module supports VRF-Lite, which allows the creation of multiple virtual routing tables.
- Secure Shell (SSH): SSH is a network protocol that provides secure communication between two devices over an unsecured network. The Cisco N9K-X9736C-FX Nexus 9500 36 Ports Line Card Expansion module supports SSH version 2.
- Simple Network Management Protocol version 3 (SNMPv3): SNMP is a protocol used to manage network devices. The Cisco N9K-X9736C-FX Nexus 9500 36 Ports Line Card Expansion module supports SNMPv3, which provides authentication and encryption of SNMP messages.
- Virtual Private Network (VPN): VPN is a technology used to create a secure connection between two devices over an unsecured network. The Cisco N9K-X9736C-FX Nexus 9500 36 Ports Line Card Expansion module supports several VPN technologies, including IPsec and SSL VPN.
- Network Address Translation (NAT): NAT is a technology used to translate private IP addresses to public IP addresses. The Cisco N9K-X9736C-FX Nexus 9500 36 Ports Line Card Expansion module supports both source and destination NAT.
- Port Security: Port security is a feature that restricts the number of MAC addresses that can be learned on a switch port. The Cisco N9K-X9736C-FX Nexus 9500 36 Ports Line Card Expansion module supports port security.
- Control Plane Policing (CoPP): CoPP is a feature that protects the control plane of a network device by limiting the rate of traffic that can be sent to the control plane. The Cisco N9K-X9736C-FX Nexus 9500 36 Ports Line Card Expansion module supports CoPP.

About Refurbished 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.
