CISCO NEXUS 92160YC-X - 48 x 1/10/25-Gbps SFP+ ports and 6 x QSFP28 ports (4 of the 6 QSFP+ ports are 100Gbps capable ports)*
The Cisco Nexus 92160YC-X Switch (Figure 2) is a 1-Rack-Unit (1RU) switch that supports 3.2 Terabits per second (Tbps) of bandwidth and over 2.5 billion packets per second (bpps). The 48-port downlink ports on the 92160YC-X can be configured to work as either 1/10/25-Gbps ports, offering deployment flexibility and investment protection. The uplink can support up to four 100-Gbps OR up to six 40-Gbps ports, or a combination of 10-, 25-, 40-, and 100-Gbps connectivity, offering flexible migration options. The switch has FC-FEC enabled for 25Gbps, and supports up to 3m in DAC connectivity. Please check Cisco Optics Matrix for the most updated support.
The Cisco Nexus 92348GC-X and the 92160YC-X can collect comprehensive Cisco Tetration Analytics™ telemetry information at line rate across all ports without adding any latency to the packets or negatively affecting switch performance. This telemetry information is exported every 100 milliseconds (ms) by default directly from the switch’s Application- Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). This information consists of three types of data:
● Flow information: This information contains information about endpoints, protocols, ports, when the flow started, how long the flow was active, etc.
● Interpacket variation: This information captures any interpacket variations within the flow. Examples include variation in Time To Live (TTL), IP and TCP flags, payload length, etc.
● Context details: Context information is derived outside the packet header, including variation in buffer utilization, packet drops within a flow, association with tunnel endpoints, etc.
The Cisco Tetration Analytics platform consumes this telemetry data, and by using unsupervised machine learning and behavior analysis it can provide outstanding pervasive visibility across everything in your data center in real time. By using algorithmic approaches, the Cisco Tetration Analytics platform provides deep insights into applications and interactions, enabling dramatically simplified operations, a zero-trust model, and migration of applications to any programmable infrastructure.
