N3K-C3016Q-40GE Overview

The Cisco Nexus® 3016 Switch (Figure 1) is a 40 Gigabit Ethernet switch platform. It is a high-performance, ultra‑low-latency Ethernet switch providing line-rate Layer 2 and 3 switching in a compact one-Rack-Unit (1RU) form factor. The switch runs the industry-leading Cisco® NX-OS Software operating system, providing customers with robust features and functions that are widely deployed globally.

The line-rate Layer 2 and 3 switching at ultra-low latencies along with the serialization benefits of 40 Gigabit Ethernet switching make the Cisco Nexus 3016 an ideal switch platform for financial co-locations. This switch supports both forward and reversed airflow schemes with AC and DC power inputs.
