Modern data center network challenges require innovative solutions offering high scale and high bandwidth. These enterprises require a flexible, reliable solution that efficiently manages, troubleshoots and analyzes their IT infrastructure. These solutions should provide security, automation, visibility, analytics and assurance.

Greater Ethernet speeds, virtual data center builds, Internet of Things (IoT), and hybrid/multi-cloud expansion are putting the pedal to the medal on data center networking resources. When you add in burgeoning 5G and video-based data transport growth, the pressure is on for data centers to upgrade capacity to fulfill delivering these quickly growing data and bandwidth-intensive applications.

400G is essential to meeting new data center networking demands and data center challenges. These challenges include meeting mushrooming data center interconnect (DCI) traffic demand, handling and securing uncompressed 4K/8K/16K video, scaling HPC clusters, and easing adoption of new must-have storage and memory technologies.

The new Cisco Nexus 400G and 800G switches are built for the most demanding environments, 400G/800G provides high flexibility and customer choice, while preparing you for the next frontier of cloud networking, can help large cloud and data center customers stay ahead of these demands. These switches provide Cost-effectively build high-density 100/400G/800G fabrics for web-scale customers.

Also, they can Gain investment protection with flexible options across web-scale and enterprise workloads. By using Nexus 800G Cisco ACI architecture, they would get high-bandwidth fabrics with the automation, visibility, assurance, and security functions of ACI fabrics.

The Nexus 400G portfolio includes following switches:
