Tech overview

Cisco Part Number: N3K-C36180YC-R= is a Cisco Nexus 36180YC-R, 48p 10/25G and 6p QSFP28 switch (spare)

The Cisco Nexus C36180YC-R is a high-capacity Ethernet switch designed for data center aggregation, offering speeds of 1, 10, 25, 40, or 100 Gigabits. Its sizable buffers and routing table make it versatile for various applications like IP storage, DMZ, big data, and edge routing. With a compact 1RU form factor, this switch delivers comprehensive Layer 2 and Layer 3 functionalities. It belongs to the R-Series family and operates on the industry-leading NX-OS operating system software.

The extensive programmability features empower organizations to run current applications and adapt to evolving needs. The Cisco Nexus C36180YC-R supports both forward and reverse airflow schemes, with AC and DC power inputs.

The Cisco Nexus C36180YC-R is a Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) and Quad SFP (QSFP) switch featuring 48 SFP and 6 QSFP28 ports. Each SFP port supports 1, 10, or 25 Gigabit Ethernet, while each QSFP28 operates at 100 or 40 Gigabit Ethernet or in a breakout cable configuration. Additionally, 6 QSFP28 ports support the IEEE 802.1ae MAC Security (MACSec) standard.
