Product Features
  • Intelligent storage networking services at a cost-effective price
    The Cisco MDS 9148 offers intelligent storage networking capabilities such as virtual SANs (VSANs), Inter-VSAN Routing (IVR) readiness, PortChannels, quality of service (QoS), and security. These features make it easy to design, deploy, and manage the Cisco MDS 9148 as either a standalone departmental SAN switch or a top-of-the-rack switch or an edge switch in an enterprise core-edge SAN.
  • Simplified scalable deployment of virtual machine-aware SANs
    In a virtual machine environment in which many host operating systems or applications are running on a physical host, the Cisco MDS 9148 uses N-Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) technology to provide independent management for each virtual machine. Furthermore, the Cisco MDS 9148 provides Cisco N-Port Virtualization (NPV) and fabric-port (F-port) channeling features to enable scaling of SANs without reaching Fiber Channel domain ID limits. The Cisco FlexAttach feature enables transparent server deployment and movement without SAN reconfiguration.
  • High-availability platform for mission-critical deployments
    The Cisco MDS 9148 is designed for environments in which downtime is unacceptable. It offers non-disruptive software upgrades, dual hot-swappable power supplies (with integrated fans for redundancy), hot-swappable fans, VSANs for fault isolation, PortChannels for Inter-Switch Link (ISL) resiliency, and F-port trunking for resiliency on uplinks from a Cisco MDS 9148 operating in NPV mode.
  • Comprehensive security framework
    The Cisco MDS 9148 supports RADIUS and TACACS+, port security, fabric binding, Fiber Channel Security Protocol (FC-SP) host-to-switch and switch-to-switch authentication, Secure FTP (SFTP), Secure Shell Version 2 (SSHv2) and Simple Network Management Protocol Version 3 (SNMPv3) implementing Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), VSANs, hardware-enforced zoning, broadcast zones, and per-VSAN role-based access control (RBAC).
  • Simplified storage management
    The Cisco MDS 9148 supports SAN plug-and-play capability as well as built-in storage network management, with all features available through a command-line interface (CLI) or the Cisco Fabric Manager, a centralized management tool with task-based wizards that simplifies management of a standalone switch or multiple switches and fabrics.
  • Sophisticated diagnostics
    Industry-leading intelligent diagnostics such as Fiber Channel ping, Fiber Channel trace route, Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN), Cisco Fabric Analyzer, and integrated Call Home capability enhance reliability, facilitate faster problem resolution, and reduce service costs.

Cisco MDS 9148 Multilayer Fabric Switch - Switch - Managed - 48 x 8Gb Fibre Channel - desktop, rack-mountable

The Cisco MDS 9148 Multilayer Fabric Switch is a high-performance, flexible, cost-effective platform providing high-density, line-rate 8-Gbps ports for storage networking deployments in small, medium-sized, and large enterprise environments. The Cisco MDS 9148, based on a purpose-built "switch-on-a-chip" application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), offers outstanding value by providing high-availability, security, and ease of use at a cost-effective price in a compact one-rack-unit (1RU) form factor. The Cisco MDS 9148 offers the densities required to scale from an entry-level departmental switch to top-of-the-rack switch to edge connectivity in enterprise SANs.
