Product Features
  • Optimization for virtualization and cloud deployments
    Data centers today must meet the demanding challenges of virtualization and cloud-based computing. High-performance servers deployed in the cloud can support many more virtual machines and workloads than ever before. The requirement to deploy new servers on demand puts additional strain on the network fabric. The Cisco Nexus 6004 solves this problem by providing scalability and performance, making this platform excellent for meeting both current and future needs.
  • Density and resiliency
    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 and efficient as possible and delivering benefits traditionally offered on blade servers to rack servers as well. Hot-swappable power and fan modules are accessible 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 6004 helps data centers operate within their space, power, and cooling parameters while reducing their carbon footprints. The switch power supplies can maintain 90 percent efficiency at load conditions of as low as 25-percent utilization, allowing them to use power efficiently while still being appropriately sized to support full system load conditions.
  • Low latency
    The Cisco Nexus 6004 with cut-through switching supports approximately 1 microsecond of port-to-port latency for any packet size with features enabled.
  • Intelligent Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) and Encapsulated SPAN (ERSPAN)
    SPAN and ERSPAN are used for troubleshooting and robust monitoring of traffic. The SPAN and ERSPAN features in the Cisco Nexus 6004 are nondisruptive because only extra bandwidth capacity is used for SPAN and ERSPAN traffic. SPAN and ERSPAN traffic is categorized as best effort, and in the event of link congestion, SPAN and ERSPAN traffic is dropped first. Enhancements include a more efficient allocation of bandwidth to SPAN and ERSPAN traffic, through which any fabric bandwidth not used for data traffic can be allocated to SPAN and ERSPAN traffic.
  • Flexible buffer management
    The Cisco Nexus 6004 supports a 25-MB packet buffer shared by every 3 ports of 40 Gigabit Ethernet or 12 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet. Of the 25-MB buffer, 16 MB are used for ingress buffering, and 9 MB are used for egress buffering. The Cisco Nexus 6004 supports allocation of buffers as shared, dedicated, or shared plus dedicated. The flexible buffer management capability of the Cisco Nexus 6004 allows dynamic tuning of the shared and dedicated buffer size if congestion occurs.
  • Multicast enhancements
    The Cisco Nexus 6004 supports line-rate Layer 2 and Layer 3 multicast throughput for all frame sizes. It offers optimized multicast replication through the fabric and at the egress point. The large buffers allow absorption of bursty traffic. In hardware, 32,000 multicast routes and Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping tables are supported. Multicast enhancements include flow-based hashing for multicast traffic over PortChannels and enhanced bidirectional Protocol Independent Multicast (BiDiR PIM) support. The Cisco Nexus 6004 also supports IP-based forwarding for IGMP snooping.
  • Future support for Dynamic Fabric Automation (DFA)
    The Cisco Nexus 6004 with support for DFA helps customers simplify, automate, and optimize their data center networks. The Cisco Nexus 6004 with DFA provides the flexibility to deploy 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet leaf-and-spine fabric, which helps reduce provisioning times and improve data center orchestration and maintenance times to help organizations manage network growth.

Cisco Nexus 6004 EF - Switch - Managed - 24 x 40 Gigabit QSFP+ - rack-mountable

The Cisco Nexus 6004 switch is a critical component of the Cisco Unified Data Center architecture, complementing the existing Cisco Nexus Family of switches. The Cisco Nexus 6004 offers the industry's high 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet and Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) port density in a compact energy-efficient form factor, with integrated Layer 2 and Layer 3 features at wire speed and low latency of approximately 1 microsecond for any packet size. It runs the industry-leading Cisco NX-OS software operating system, offering features and capabilities that are widely deployed throughout the world.
The Cisco Nexus 6004 is a four-rack-unit (4RU) 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet switch offering wire-speed performance for up to ninety-six 40 Gigabit Ethernet ports or three hundred eighty-four 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports (using Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable [QSFP] breakout cables) for Ethernet and FCoE traffic with an overall throughput of 7.68 terabits per second (Tbps). The Cisco Nexus 6004 also supports 1 gigabit connectivity using QSFP to SFP or Enhanced SFP (SFP+) adapters, offering customers additional flexibility. The Cisco Nexus 6004 offers eight line-card expansion module (LEM) slots to support a total of 96 ports of 40 Gbps throughput in a fully populated system. The Cisco Nexus 6004, through its extensible architecture, provides customers with a low-cost entry point for small-scale deployments. Thus, the Cisco Nexus 6004 chassis along with the LEMs offers incredible flexibility for scaling deployments, making it the only fully extensible fixed 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet platform in the industry.
The Cisco Nexus 6004 as a high-density 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE platform can be deployed in multiple scenarios - direct-attach 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet server-access and high-density fabric extender aggregation deployments, leaf-and-spine architectures, and compact aggregation deployments - to build a scalable Cisco Unified Fabric across a diverse set of physical and virtual server environments in data centers.
