Cisco Nexus 6004 EF Managed L2/L3 4U Switch

Cisco Nexus 6004 EF Managed L2/L3 4U Switch
N6004 Chassis EF with 8 x 1G FEXe with FETs



The Cisco Nexus 6004 Extensible Fixed (6004EF) Switch is the latest switch in the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series. It extends the industry-leading innovation and versatility of the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series data center switches and runs the same industry-leading Cisco NX-OS Software operating system. The Cisco Nexus 6004EF is versatile. Choose either front-to-back or back to-front airflow options to suit traditional data center implementations or large-scale cloud deployments. And with 10 Gigabit Ethernet, 40 Gigabit Ethernet, and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) connectivity options, you can build a scalable Cisco Unified Fabric across a range of physical and virtual server environments. An extensible architecture also makes the Cisco Nexus 6004EF a low-cost entry point for small-scale deployments.

The Cisco Nexus 6004EF (Figure 1) is a 4-rack-unit (4RU) 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet switch with the industry’s highest port density in a compact, energy-efficient form factor. It offers eight line-card expansion module (LEM) slots to support up to 96 ports of 40-Gbps throughput. Each LEM supports 12 ports of 40 Gigabit Ethernet in a Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable (QSFP) footprint. Each 40 Gigabit Ethernet port can also be split into four line‑rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports using QSFP breakout cables. This flexibility makes the Cisco Nexus 6004EF the only fully extensible fixed 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet platform in the industry. The Cisco Nexus 6004EF also offers a unified expansion module for 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel and FCoE support.
