Three Cisc o Nexus 3064 switches are available:
● Cisc o Nexus 3064-X (Figure 1): This 10-Gbps Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+)-based top‑of-rack switch has 48 SFP+ ports and 4 Quad SFP+ (QSFP+) ports. Each SFP+ port can operate in 100-Mbps, 1-Gbps, or 10-Gbps mode, and each QSFP+ port can
operate in native 40-Gbps or 4 x 10-Gbps mode. This switch is a true phy-less switch that is optimized for low latency and low power consumption.
● Cisc o Nexus 3064-T (Figure 2): This 10GBASE-T switch has 48 10GBASE-T RJ-45 ports and 4 QSFP+ ports. This switch is well suited for customers who want to reuse existing copper cabling while migrating from 1-Gbps to 10-Gbps servers.
● Cisc o Nexus 3064-32T (Figure 2): This switch is the Cisco Nexus 3064-T with 32 10GBASE-T ports and 4 QSFP+ ports enabled. The ports are enabled through software licensing. This switch provides a cost-effective solution for customers who require up to 32 10GBASE-T ports per rack. This switch comes with a 32-10GBASE-T port license preinstalled. To enable the remaining 16 10GBASE-T ports, the customer installs the 16-port upgrade license.
