Product Overview

The Cisco Nexus® 3064-X, 3064-T, and 3064-32T Switches are high-performance, high-density Ethernet switches that are part of the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series Switches portfolio. These compact one-rack-unit (1RU) form-factor 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches provide line-rate Layer 2 and 3 switching. They run the industry-leading Cisco® NX‑OS Software operating system, providing customers with comprehensive features and functions that are widely deployed globally. They support both forward and reverse airflow schemes with AC and DC power inputs. The Cisco Nexus 3064 switches are well suited for data centers that require cost-effective, power-efficient, line-rate Layer 2 and 3 top-of-rack (ToR) switches.

Three Cisco Nexus 3064 switches are available:

● Cisco Nexus 3064-X (Figure 1): This 10-Gbps Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+)-based top‑of-rack switch has 48 SFP+ ports and 4 Quad SFP+ (QSFP+) ports. Each SFP+ port can operate in 100-Mbps, 1-Gbps, or 10-Gbps mode, and each QSFP+ port can operate in native 40-Gbps or 4 x 10-Gbps mode. This switch is a true phy-less switch that is optimized for low latency and low power consumption.

● Cisco Nexus 3064-T (Figure 2): This 10GBASE-T switch has 48 10GBASE-T RJ-45 ports and 4 QSFP+ ports. This switch is well suited for customers who want to reuse existing copper cabling while migrating from 1-Gbps to 10-Gbps servers.

● Cisco Nexus 3064-32T (Figure 2): This switch is the Cisco Nexus 3064-T with 32 10GBASE-T ports and 4 QSFP+ ports enabled. The ports are enabled through software licensing. This switch provides a cost-effective solution for customers who require up to 32 10GBASE-T ports per rack. This switch comes with a 32-10GBASE-T port license preinstalled. To enable the remaining 16 10GBASE-T ports, the customer installs the 16-port upgrade license.

Main Benefits

The Cisco Nexus 3064 switches provide the following main benefits:

● Wire-rate Layer 2 and 3 switching on all ports

◦ The Cisco Nexus 3064 switches provide Layer 2 and 3 switching of up to 1.2 terabits per second (Tbps) and more than 950 million packets per second (mpps) in a compact 1RU form factor.

● Ultra-low latency

◦ The Cisco Nexus 3064 switches deliver ultra-low nominal latency that allows customers to implement high‑performance infrastructure for high-frequency trading (HFT) workloads.

● Purpose-built on Cisco NX-OS operating system with comprehensive, proven innovations

◦ Virtual PortChannel (vPC) provides Layer 2 multipathing through the elimination of Spanning Tree Protocol and enables fully utilized bisectional bandwidth and simplified Layer 2 logical topologies without the need to change the existing management and deployment models.

◦ PowerOn Auto Provisioning (POAP) enables touchless bootup and configuration of the switch, drastically reducing provisioning time.

◦ Cisco Embedded Event Manager (EEM) and Python scripting enable automation and remote operations in the data center.

◦ Advanced buffer monitoring reports real-time buffer use per port and per queue, which allows organizations to monitor traffic bursts and application traffic patterns.

◦ The 64-way equal-cost multipath (ECMP) routing enables Layer 3 fat tree designs and allows organizations to prevent network bottlenecks, increase resiliency, and add capacity with little network disruption.

◦ EtherAnalyzer is a built-in packet analyzer for monitoring and troubleshooting control-plane traffic and is based on the popular Wireshark open source network protocol analyzer.

◦ Precision Time Protocol (PTP; IEEE 1588) provides accurate clock synchronization and improved data correlation with network captures and system events.

◦ Full Layer 3 unicast and multicast routing protocol suites are supported, including Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Routing Information Protocol Version 2 (RIPv2), Protocol Independent Multicast sparse mode (PIM-SM), Source-Specific Multicast (SSM), and Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP).

Transceiver and Cabling Options

The Cisco Nexus 3064 switches support a wide variety of 1, 10, and 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity options. 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity is achieved in the first 48 ports, and 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity is achieved using QSFP+ transceivers in the last 4 ports.

QSFP+ technology allows smooth transition from 10 to 40 Gigabit Ethernet infrastructures in data centers. The Cisco Nexus 3064 switches support connectivity over copper and fiber cables, providing excellent physical-layer flexibility. For low-cost cabling, copper-based 40-Gbps Twinax cables can be used, and for longer cable reaches, short-reach optical transceivers are excellent.

Connectivity can be established from the QSFP ports to an upstream 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch using a splitter cable that has a QSFP transceiver on one end and four SFP+ transceivers on the other end. Similar capability can be achieved using optical transceivers by procuring third-party fiber splitters. Table 1 lists the QSFP transceiver types supported.

Cisco NX-OS Software Benefits

Table 4 summarizes the benefits that Cisco NX-OS Software offers.

Table 4. Benefits of Cisco NX-OS Software

Feature

Benefit

Common software throughout the data center: Cisco NX-OS runs on all Cisco data center switch platforms (Cisco Nexus 7000, 5000, 4000, 2000, and 1000V Series).
● Simplification of data center operating environment
● End-to-end Cisco Nexus and Cisco NX-OS fabric
● No retraining necessary for data center engineering and operations teams
Software compatibility: Cisco NX-OS intercoperates with Cisco products running any variant of Cisco IOS Software and also with any networking OS that conforms to the networking standards listed as supported in this data sheet.
● Transparent operation with existing network infrastructure
● Open standards
● No compatibility concerns
Modular software design: Cisco NX-OS is designed to support distributed multithreaded processing. Cisco NX-OS modular processes are instantiated on demand, each in a separate protected memory space. Thus, processes are started and system resources allocated only when a feature is enabled. The modular processes are governed by a real-time preemptive scheduler that helps ensure timely processing of critical functions.
● Robust software
● Fault tolerance
● Increased scalability
● Increased network availability
Troubleshooting and diagnostics: Cisco NX-OS is built with unique serviceability functions to allow network operators to take early action based on network trends and events, enhancing network planning and improving network operations center (NOC) and vendor response times. Cisco Smart Call Home and Cisco Online Health Management System (OHMS) are some of the features that enhance the serviceability of Cisco NX-OS.
● Quick problem isolation and resolution
● Continuous system monitoring and proactive notifications
● Improved productivity of operations teams
Ease of management: Cisco NX-OS provides a programmatic XML interface based on the NETCONF industry standard. The Cisco NX-OS XML interface provides a consistent API for devices. Cisco NX-OS also provides support for Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Versions 1, 2, and 3 MIBs.
● Rapid development and creation of tools for enhanced management
● Comprehensive SNMP MIB support for efficient remote monitoring
Using the Cisco Nexus Data Broker software and Cisco Plug-in for OpenFlow agent, the Cisco Nexus 3064 switches can be used to build a scalable, cost-effective, and programmable tap or SPAN aggregation infrastructure. This approach replaces the traditional purpose-built matrix switches with these switches. You can interconnect these switches to build a multilayer topology for tap or SPAN aggregation infrastructure.
● Scalable and cost effective
● Robust traffic filtering capabilities
● Traffic aggregation from multiple input ports across different switches
● Traffic replication and forwarding to multiple monitoring tools
Role-based access control (RBAC): With RBAC, Cisco NX-OS enables administrators to limit access to switch operations by assigning roles to users. Administrators can customize access and restrict it to the users who require it.
● Effective access control mechanism based on user roles
● Improved network device security
● Reduction in network problems arising from human error
