Build a next-generation network
Create the network foundation for a next-generation Unified Fabric data center. The modular Cisco Nexus 7000 and 7700 switches deliver a comprehensive Cisco NX-OS feature set and open-source programmable tools for software-defined networking (SDN) deployments. They offer high-density 10, 40, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet with application awareness and performance analytics.
Features and benefits
The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches run on Cisco NX-OS Software. It was specifically developed for mission-critical enterprise and service provider deployments. The switches offer a full feature set in a highly resilient modular platform.
Virtualization, efficient power and cooling, cloud scale with automation, high density, and performance all support efficient data center growth.
The design integrates hardware, NX-OS Software features, and management to support zero-downtime environments.
Networking technologies can be incrementally and cost-effectively adopted. These include the Cisco Remote Integrated Services Engine (RISE), Cisco Dynamic Fabric Automation (DFA), and Cisco Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV).
Programmability with open NX-OS
The 7000 Series offers programmable and automation tools for zero-day to day-N configuration and management. Standard, open, and programmable API interfaces are available for provisioning control and data planes. Visit the DevNet community for resources.
