Cisco UCS - Nexus 6000 Switches

High-Density, Compact Form Factor

Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Switches are designed to deliver high-density 40 Gigabit Ethernet in an energy-efficient, compact form factor. They offer a comprehensive integrated Layer 2 and Layer 3 feature set. These switches are thus ideal for space-constrained, high-density, and high-performance deployments in traditional, virtualized, and cloud environments
