          Ordering Information

          The Cisco Nexus 5696Q is a high-density, wire-rate, Layer 2 and Layer 3 switch. It offers Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) support with 10, 40, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) ports. These switches provide modular expansion slots for increased scalability, providing investment protection for future technologies. They also facilitate high scalability, operational efficiency, and design flexibility for traditional, virtualized, and cloud environments.

          Compatibility Notes Optimization for virtualization and cloud deployments: Today, high-performance servers deployed in the cloud can support more virtual machines and workloads than before. But deploying new servers on demand puts additional strain on the network fabric. The Cisco Nexus 5600 40-Gbps platform switches address this challenge by providing scalability and performance, making the platform excellent for meeting current and future needs.

          Density and resilience: Built for today’s data centers, the switches are designed just like the servers they support. Ports and power connections are at the rear, close to server ports, helping keep cable lengths as short as possible and delivering to rack servers benefits traditionally offered only on blade servers. Hot-swappable power and fan modules can be accessed from the front panel, where status lights offer an at-a-glance view of switch operation. Front-to-back or back-to-front cooling is consistent with server designs, supporting efficient data center hot- and cold-aisle designs. Serviceability is enhanced with all customer-replaceable units accessible from the front panel.

          Energy efficiency: The Cisco Nexus 5600 40-Gbps platform switches help data centers operate within their space, power, and cooling parameters while reducing their carbon footprints. The switch power supplies are also capable of maintaining 90 percent efficiency at load conditions as low as 25 percent utilization. This capability allows the switches to make efficient use of power while still being appropriately sized to support the conditions of a full system load.

          Low latency: Cut-through switching enables these switches to support approximately 1 microsecond of port-to-port latency for any packet size with features enabled.

          Intelligent Cisco Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) and Encapsulated SPAN (ERSPAN): SPAN and ERSPAN can be used for troubleshooting and robust monitoring of traffic. The SPAN and ERSPAN capabilities are nondisruptive, with only extra bandwidth capacity used for SPAN and ERSPAN traffic. Enhancements include more efficient allocation of bandwidth to SPAN and ERSPAN traffic whereby any fabric bandwidth not used for data traffic can be allocated to SPAN or ERSPAN traffic. The switch can support up to 31 line-rate SPAN and ERSPAN sessions.

          Flexible buffer management: The Cisco Nexus 5600 40-Gbps platform switches support a 25-MB packet buffer shared by every 3 ports of 40 Gigabit Ethernet or every 12 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The flexible buffer management capability allows dynamic tuning of the shared and dedicated buffer size in the event of congestion.

          Multicast enhancements: Line-rate Layer 2 and 3 multicast throughput for all frame sizes is also supported on these switches. They offer optimized multicast replication through the fabric and at the egress point. Support is provided for 32,000 multicast routes and for Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping tables in hardware. Multicast enhancements include flow-based hashing for multicast traffic over a PortChannel and enhanced Bidirectional Protocol-Independent Multicast (Bidir-PIM) support. The switch also supports IP-based forwarding for IGMP snooping.
