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

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

◦     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 packet capture and system events.

◦     Complete 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).


All three switches have the following configuration:

  • 32 fixed 40 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP+ ports
  • 4 SFP+ ports, which are multiplexed internally with the first QSFP+ port
  • Locator LED
  • Dual redundant power supplies
  • Redundant (3+1) fans
  • Support for forward (port-side exhaust) and reversed (port-side intake) airflow schemes

The Cisco Nexus 3132Q has the following configuration:

Transceiver and Cabling Options

The Cisco Nexus 3132Q, 3132Q-X, and 3132Q-XL have 32 QSFP+ ports. QSFP+ technology allows a smooth transition from 10 to 40 Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure in data centers. Each of the switches’ QSFP+ ports can operate in either native 40 Gigabit Ethernet mode or 4 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet mode. All switches support both fiber and copper cabling solutions for these two modes.

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 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches or hosts 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 on the fiber solution by using QSFP+ SR4/CSR4, or 4X10G-LR transceivers and procuring third-party fiber splitter MPO-to-LC cables in order to connect to SFP+ SR or SFP+ LR interfaces respectively.

In addition 1G and 10G interfaces are supported on native SFP ports, as well as on QSFP ports with the Cisco CVR-QSFP-SFP10G adapter.
