Tech Series Article #20. This article will be about Cisco Nexus 6001 Series Switches. It is exactly the same topic as our last article. Did you miss our tech article? Here's our last tech article: Exploring Cisco 6000 switches - Benefits and Models #NB Tech A19. Let's return to this edition and see what Cisco Nexus 6001 series switches have to offer. We have already mentioned that the Cisco 6000 series switches come in two models: 6001 and 6004 switches. 6001 nexus include 1 Rack Unit, wire rate L2 and L3 switches. 6001 series switches provide high performance, operational efficiency, and design flexibility for virtualized environments.
These switches provide power supply grid redundancy and 1+1 redundancy using 2 power supplies.
Cisco 6001 switches make use of custom-built ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit) in order to deliver L2 and L3 features in line rate.
Cisco Nexus 6001 Series Switches: Features
Cisco 6001 is a 10 GE 48 port switch with 40 Gigabit Ethernet downlinks.
