Detailed Product Description

Expansion Modules

Expansion modules allow the Cisco Nexus 5596UP switch to be configured as cost-effective 10-Gigabit Ethernet switches and as I/O consolidation platforms with native Fibre Channel connectivity.

The Cisco Nexus 5596UP switch has three slots that can be used for the following optional expansion modules:

  • 4-port QSFP expansion module
  • 16-port Universal (Fibre Channel and Ethernet) GEM (N55-M16UP) that provides 8-, 4-, 2-, or 1-Gbps Fibre Channel and 1- or 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • Layer 3 GEMs (N55-M160L3 and N55-M160L3-V2) provide 160 Gbps of Layer 3 services. The N55-M160L3-V2 uses a newer version of the Layer 3 ASIC that enables higher table sizes in a future software release from 8K host entries to 16K host entries or from 4K multicast routes to 8K multicast routes (IPv4).

You can hot swap the expansion modules during operations, except the Layer 3 GEMs. You must power down the switch before you can insert or remove the Layer 3 GEMs.

This section includes the following topics:

4-port QSFP+ GEM

The QSFP+ GEM (N55-M4Q), shown in Figure 1-4, is a generic expansion module (GEM) that provides 16x10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ in a 4 x QSFP+ form factor. This module is a field-replaceable unit (FRU) that you can hot swap during operations.

16-port Universal GEM2

The 16-port Universal GEM2, shown in Figure 1-5, has 16 8-, 4-, 2-, or 1-Gbps Fibre Channel or 1- and 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports. This module is a field-replaceable unit (FRU) that you can hot swap during operations.

Layer 3 GEM

The Layer 3 GEMs (N55-M160L3 and N55-M160L3-V2), shown in Figure 1-6, provide 160 Gbps of Layer 3 services. The expansion modules are field-replaceable units (FRUs). The N55-M160L3-V2 uses a newer version of the Layer 3 ASIC that enables higher table sizes in a future software release from 8K host entries to 16K host entries or from 4K multicast routes to 8K multicast routes (IPv4).

The Layer 3 GEMs are not hot swappable and can be inserted and removed only when the switch is powered down.

NoteCisco NIB N55-M16UP Cisco Network Module When a Layer 3 I/O module is inserted into a Cisco Nexus 5500 Series switch that does not have any other I/O modules, you cannot use port-channel numbers 127 and 128 as these port-channel numbers are used by the switch for internal communication. However, if port-channel numbers 127 and 128 have already been used before a Layer 3 I/O module is inserted into the switch, new port-channel numbers will be used by the switch for internal communication.

NoteCisco NIB N55-M16UP Cisco Network Module Never leave a power supply slot empty. If you remove a power supply, replace it with another one. If you do not have a replacement power supply, leave the non functioning one in place until you can replace it.


 

Fan Module

The Cisco Nexus 5596UP switch has four fan modules. Although the switch can function when a fan stops functioning within a fan module, if a whole fan module stops functioning, you must replace the fan module. The Cisco Nexus 5596UP supports the reverse air flow fan tray (N5596UP-FAN-B).

Figure 1-12 shows a fan module.

Caution Cisco NIB N55-M16UP Cisco Network Module All of the power supply and fan modules in the same chassis must use the same airflow direction or an error will occur with possible over heating and shut down of the switch. If you power up the switch with more than one airflow direction, you must power down the switch and replace the modules with the wrong airflow direction (modules not taking in coolant air from the cold aisle) before powering up the switch.

This section describes the Cisco Nexus 5596T switch and its components. This section includes the following topics:

Features

The Cisco Nexus 5596T switch is a 2RU switch, with 32 fixed ports of 10GBASE-T and 16 SFP+ fixed ports. The switch also supports up to three expansion slots. The switch supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet (fiber and copper), Fibre Channel, and FCoE, offering up to 1920 Gbps of throughput and up to 96 ports. The switch supports unified ports on all SFP+ ports. The hardware for the 10GBASE-T ports is capable of supporting FCoE. FCOE on 10GBaseT ports is supported only for lengths less than or equal to 30m.

The Cisco Nexus 5596T switch has the following features:

  • 32 fixed ports of 10GBASE-T and 16 fixed ports of SFP+ on the back of the switch
  • Three slots on the back of the switch for optional expansion modules
  • Two slots on the front of the switch for hot swap-capable power supplies, which provide back-to-front (port-side exhaust) or front-to-back (port-side intake) airflow for cooling (this switch supports only one direction of airflow at a time for all modules)
  • Four slots on the front of the switch for hot swap-capable fan modules, which provide back-to-front (port-side exhaust) or front-to-back (port-side intake) airflow for cooling (this switch supports only one direction of airflow at a time for all modules).
  • Layer 2 or Layer 3 I/O modules
  • One USB port on the front of the switch

Chassis

The Cisco Nexus 5596T chassis is 2 RU or 3.47 inches (8.8 cm) tall, 17.3 inches (43.9 cm) wide, and 29.5 inches (74.9 cm) deep. It is designed to be mounted in a standard 19-inch wide rack. The front of the switch is shown in Figure 1-13.

Expansion Modules

Expansion modules allow the Cisco Nexus 5596T switch to be configured as cost-effective 10-Gigabit Ethernet switches and as I/O consolidation platforms with native Fibre Channel connectivity.

The Cisco Nexus 5596T switch has three slots that can be used for the following optional expansion modules:

  • Ethernet module that provides sixteen 1- or 10-Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE ports using the SFP+ interface
  • Fibre Channel plus Ethernet module that provides eight 1- or 10-Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE ports using the SFP+ interface, and eight ports of 8/4/2/1-Gbps native Fibre Channel connectivity using the SFP+/SFP interface
  • Unified port module that provides up to sixteen 1- or 10-Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE ports using the SFP+ interface or up to sixteen ports of 8/4/2/1-Gbps native Fibre Channel connectivity using the SFP+ and SFP interfaces. The use of 1- or 10-Gigabit Ethernet or 8/4/2/1-Gbps Fibre Channel on a port is mutually exclusive but can be selected for any of the 16 physical ports per module
  • Ethernet module that provides twelve 10GBASE-T ports (N55-M12T). The hardware is FCoE capable

You can hot swap the expansion modules during operations.
