Tech Overview

Cisco Part Number: N3K-C3548P-XL is a Nexus 3548-XL Switch, 48 SFP+

The Cisco Nexus3000 Series Switches offer a diverse range of 1, 10, and 40 Gigabit Ethernet switches, employing a Switch-on-a-Chip (SoC) architecture. Introduced in April 2011, these switches deliver high-performance Layer 2 and 3 capabilities, ideal for Top-of-the-Rack (ToR) setups. Renowned in High-Frequency Trading (HFT), High-Performance Computing (HPC), and big data environments, they combine speed, low latency, and advancements in performance visibility, automation, and time synchronization.

Taking leadership further, the Cisco Nexus 3500 platform introduces Cisco Algorithm Boost (Algo Boost) technology. Embedded in the switch Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC), Algo Boost enables the Cisco Nexus 3500 platform to achieve remarkable Layer 2 and 3 switching latencies of under 200 nanoseconds (ns).

Specifically, the Cisco Nexus 3548-XL and 3524-XL Switches, upgraded with a faster 2.5 GHz CPU, expanded system memory to 16 GB, and bootflash memory to 16 GB, support the Cisco NX-OS Data Management Engine (DME) model.
