We are giving specifications below, why one should consider procuring Cisco Chassis Switch Networking features, a general overview, description, performance specification, relevant images, a competitive price infographic, and technical information about the N3K-C3524P-XL model with compatibility.

Advanced Security Features

The N3K-C3524P-XL Cisco Nexus 3524-XL Switch Chassis is a high-performance, scalable switch that provides advanced security features to ensure that your network is secure and protected against threats. Some of these features include:

  • Access Control Lists (ACLs): ACLs provide administrators with the ability to define and enforce security policies, such as allowing or denying specific types of network traffic.
  • Network Admission Control (NAC): NAC is a security feature that ensures that only authorized devices are allowed to access the network. NAC can be used to enforce security policies and prevent unauthorized devices from accessing the network.
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN): The switch supports VPN, which provides secure and encrypted communication between remote devices and the network. VPN can be used to protect sensitive information from being intercepted and read by unauthorized parties.
  • 802.1X Authentication: The switch supports 802.1X authentication, which is a security protocol that allows administrators to control access to the network based on user credentials.
  • Security Information and Event Management (SIEM): The switch can integrate with SIEM tools to provide centralized management of security events and alerts. This allows administrators to quickly respond to security threats and prevent security incidents from happening.
  • Advanced Threat Defense (ATD): The switch supports ATD, which provides advanced threat detection and protection features, such as malware detection and intrusion prevention. ATD helps administrators to identify and respond to security threats in real-time.

High Availability and Redundancy

The N3K-C3524P-XL Cisco Nexus 3524-XL Switch Chassis is designed to provide high availability and redundancy to ensure that the network remains up and running, even in the face of failures. Some of the high availability and redundancy features include:

  • Redundant Power Supplies: The switch has redundant power supplies, which provide a backup power source in case of a failure. This ensures that the switch remains up and running, even if one of the power supplies fails.
  • Hot-swappable Components: The switch's components, such as line cards and power supplies, are hot-swappable, allowing administrators to replace them without having to shut down the switch.
  • Non-Stop Forwarding (NSF): NSF provides fast failover in case of a switch failure, ensuring that network traffic continues to flow without interruption.
  • Virtual PortChannel (vPC): vPC allows administrators to configure two switches as a single virtual switch, providing redundancy and high availability. In case of a switch failure, traffic can be redirected to the other switch, ensuring that the network remains up and running.
  • Fabric Extender (FEX): FEX allows administrators to extend the switch fabric to remote devices, providing increased scalability and redundancy. In case of a FEX failure, traffic can be redirected to another FEX, ensuring that the network remains up and running.

Network Scalability and Flexibility

The N3K-C3524P-XL Cisco Nexus 3524-XL Switch Chassis provides network scalability and flexibility, making it an ideal solution for organizations that need to expand and scale their network infrastructure. Some of the key features include:

  • Modular Design: The switch has a modular design, which allows administrators to add or remove line cards and power supplies as needed. This makes it easy to scale the switch as network demands change.
  • Multiple Line Cards: The switch supports multiple line cards, providing administrators with a wide range of connectivity options, including SFP+ ports, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and Fibre Channel.
  • Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN): VXLAN provides a flexible and scalable way to create virtual networks, allowing administrators to extend their network infrastructure without having to add additional physical switches.
  • Fabric Extender (FEX): FEX allows administrators to extend the switch fabric to remote devices, providing increased scalability and flexibility. This makes it easy to add new devices to the network without having to add additional switches.
  • Virtual PortChannel (vPC): vPC allows administrators to configure two switches as a single virtual switch, providing increased network scalability and flexibility. This makes it easy to add new devices to the network without having to add additional switches.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

Different Types of Switches

Networking switches vary widely depending on the number of devices they can support, network bandwidth/speed, and form factor. Switches for small offices will have anything between 4 and 8 ports and can fit on a desk. For larger office network implementation, switches may have 24 ports, 48 ports, 96 ports, and 128 ports and are rack-mountable between 1U and 4U. Switches come in different types depending on the network speed and tasks they support. These include 40/100 Gbps, 10 Gigabit (up to 10000 Mbps), Gigabit Ethernet (up to 1000 Mbps), Power over Ethernet, and Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps).

Unmanaged Switches

The unmanaged switches offer fixed configuration on a plug-and-play basis. It is the most basic switch and there are a few choices in the market. These switches are affordable, but the basic features make them inappropriate for enterprise applications.

Managed Switches

The number of features and level of functionality improves with managed switches, making them ideal for enterprise and business applications. These switches are built with the command-line interface for ease of configuration. Equally, they support SNMP agents that come in handy when troubleshooting network issues.

The security on managed switches is better and will protect different types of traffic. Other features include support for virtual LANs, IP routing, and quality of service settings. Managed switches are more expensive compared to all other types of switches.

Smart Switches

Smart switches refer to switches that possess more features than those of unmanaged switches but do not have the full features of managed switches. Smart switches are more cost-effective than managed switches.

Some of the limitations of the smart switches are a lack of telnet access support, Web GUIs, and a lack of many features for VLANs. They are affordable compared to a fully managed switch and are suitable for a smaller computer network.

Modular Switches

Modular switches allow the addition of expansion modules as the network expands. The expansion modules allow for more networked devices but are application-specific. They may include wireless access points, firewalls, or network analysis tools. The flexibility of a modular networking switch comes at a higher cost.
