Cisco Nexus 5000 Switches
Designed as top-of-rack (TOR) data center access-layer switches, Cisco’s Nexus 5000 Series simplifies data center infrastructure and reduces the total cost of data center ownership. Cisco designed the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series Switch for high-bandwidth, low-latency, and data center access to create a unified network fabric. Supporting I/O consolidation at the TOR, the Nexus 5000 switch reduces the number of cables, switches, adapters, and transceivers that each server must support while protecting current investments and existing storage assets. Designed back-to-front the 5000 series ports and power connections are at the rear, closer to the server connections and hot-swappable cooling and power modules can be accessed from the front panel where status lights provide a status indication of switch operation.
