- Improved programmability
- High performance and scalability
Features a powerful CPU, DRAM, and dynamic buffer allocation, making the switch excellent for massively scalable data centers and big data applications.
- High availability
Virtual PortChannel (vPC) technology provides Layer 2 multi-pathing by eliminating the Spanning Tree Protocol. It also enables fully used bisectional bandwidth and simplified Layer 2 logical topologies without the need to change the existing management and deployment models. Advanced maintenance capabilities include hot and cold patching and Graceful Insertion and Removal (GIR) mode. The switch uses hot-swappable power-supply units (PSUs) and fans.
The Cisco Nexus C36180YC-R is a high-speed, high-density Gigabit Ethernet switch, designed for data center aggregation. The large buffers and routing table sizes of the Cisco Nexus C36180YC-R also make this switch an alternative for a wide range of applications, such as IP storage, Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), big data, and edge routing. The switch comes in a compact 1-rack-unit (1RU) form factor and provides extensive Layer 2 and Layer 3 functions.
The comprehensive programmability features enable organizations to run today's applications, while also preparing them for demanding and changing application needs. The Cisco Nexus C36180YC-R supports both forward and reverse (port-side exhaust and port-side intake) airflow schemes with AC and DC power inputs. The Cisco Nexus C36180YC-R is a small form-factor pluggable (SFP) and quad SFP (QSFP) switch with 48 SFP and 6 QSFP28 ports. Each SFP port can operate at 1, 10, or 25 Gigabit Ethernet and each QSFP28 can operate at 100 or 40 Gigabit Ethernet or in a breakout cable configuration. 6 QSFP28 ports can supports the IEEE 802.1ae MAC Security (MACSec) standard.
