Built for security, IoT, and Cloud. The Cisco Catalyst 9500 Series Switches are the next generation of enterprise-class core
and aggregation layer switches, supporting full programmability and serviceability. Based on an x86 CPU, the Catalyst 9500
Series is Cisco-*-s lead purpose-built fixed core and aggregation enterprise switching platform, built for security, IoT, and cloud.
The switches include a 4-core, 2.4-GHz CPU, 16-GB DDR4 memory, and 16-GB internal storage. The Catalyst 9500 Series is
the industry-*-s first purpose-built 40 Gigabit Ethernet line of switches targeted for the enterprise campus. These switches
deliver unmatched table scale (MAC/route/ACL) and buffering for enterprise applications.The Catalyst 9500 Series includes
nonblocking 40G Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable (QSFP) and 10G Small Form-factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+) switches
with granular port densities that fit diverse campus needs. The switches support advanced routing and infrastructure services;
software-defined access border capabilities; and network system virtualization with Cisco StackWise virtual technology that
are critical for their placement in the campus core. The platform also supports all the foundational high-availability capabilities
such as patching, Graceful Insertion and Removal (GIR), Cisco Nonstop Forwarding with Stateful Switchover (NSF/SSO),
redundant platinum-rated power supplies, and fans.
