Nexus 7700 F3-Series 48 Port 1/10GbE (SFP/SFP+)
Part Number: N77-F348XP-23
The Cisco Nexus® 7700 F3-Series 48-Port Fiber 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet Module (referred to as the 7700 F3-Series module in this document) offers wire-rate performance on each port. As a result, enterprises can use it to deploy a high-density, low-latency, scalable architecture for powering a mission-critical data center.
Powering Cisco Unified Fabric Architecture
The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches are the foundation of the Cisco® Unified Fabric solution. The switches deliver exceptional availability and scalability and run the proven and comprehensive Cisco NX-OS Software data center switching feature set. The Cisco Nexus 7700 platform is the latest extension to the 7000 Series modular switches. With more than 83 Terabits per second (Tbps) of overall switching capacity, the 7700 platform delivers the highest-capacity 10, 40, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports in the industry, with up to 768 native 10-Gbps ports, 384 40-Gbps ports, and 192 100-Gbps ports. This high system capacity is designed to meet the scalability requirements of the largest cloud environments.
The 7700 platform’s operation and features are consistent with the existing 7000 Series switches. Both platforms use the same system architecture, the same Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) technology, and the same proven NX-OS releases.
The 7700 F3-Series module (Figure 1) is a low-latency, high-performance, high-density 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet module designed for the 7700 platform. It delivers up to 768 wire-rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a single Cisco Nexus 7700 18-Slot Switch chassis (Table 1).
