cisco 9000 switch

Build the Next-Generation Automated Data Center

The Cisco Nexus 9000 Series delivers proven high performance and density, low latency, and exceptional power efficiency in a broad range of compact form factors. Operating in Cisco NX-OS Software mode or in Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) mode, these switches are ideal for traditional or fully automated data center deployments.

Features and Capabilities

The 9000 Series Switches offer both modular (9500 switches) and fixed (9300 switches) 1/10/40/100 Gigabit Ethernet switch configurations designed to operate in one of two modes:

Cisco NX-OS mode for traditional architectures and consistency across the Cisco Nexus portfolio
ACI mode to take full advantage of the policy-driven services and infrastructure automation features of ACI

Architectural Flexibility

Delivers high performance and density, and energy-efficient traditional 3-tier or leaf-spine architectures
Provides a foundation for Cisco ACI, automating application deployment and delivering simplicity, agility, and flexibility


Use our intelligent APIs to manage the switch through remote-procedure calls over HTTP or HTTPS
Linux shell access and container environment allow you to customize management and monitoring
Python Scripting is available for programmatic access to the switch command-line interface (CLI)


Up to 60 Tbps of nonblocking performance with less than 5-microsecond latency
Up to 2304 10-Gbps or 576 40-Gbps nonblocking layer 2 and layer 3 Ethernet ports
Wire-speed virtual extensible LAN (VXLAN) gateway, bridging, and routing support

High Availability

Full Cisco In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) and patching without any interruption in operation
Fully redundant and hot-swappable components
A mix of third-party and Cisco ASICs provide for improved reliability and performance

Energy Efficiency

The chassis is designed without a midplane to optimize airflow and reduce energy requirements
The optimized design runs with fewer ASICs, resulting in lower energy use
Efficient power supplies included in the switches are rated at 80 Plus Platinum

Investment Protection

Cisco 40-Gb bidirectional transceiver allows for reuse of an existing 10 Gigabit Ethernet cabling plant for 40 Gigabit Ethernet
Designed to support future ASIC generations
Support for Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders in both NX-OS and ACI mode
Easy migration from NX-OS mode to ACI mode
