Cisco Nexus 9200 Series
Cisco Nexus 9200 Series
The Cisco® Nexus® 9200 Series switches provide the spine-leaf IP network infrastructure required for all of Grass Valley's IP-enabled products. These switches provide a tested solution for reliable audio and video data flows over an IP network. Unlike competitive solutions which are restricted to a specific protocol or network solution, the combination of Grass Valley with a Cisco network provides a best-in-class Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) solution with the scalability and performance required of a true IP broadcast data center.
  • High performance and scalability:
    • The platform provides wire-rate Layer 2 and 3 switching on all ports with up to 7.2 Tb/s and over 5.35 bp/s of bandwidth
    • With up to 30 MB of shared buffer, the platform is an excellent choice for scalable data centers and big data applications. The ability to fine tune buffer allocation for non-drop multi cast is essential for broadcast applications
  • Hardware and software high availability:
    • Patching ensures undisruptive upgrade in most cases
    • The switches use hot-swappable power-supply units (PSUs) and fans with N+1 redundancy
  • Purpose-built NX-OS operating system with comprehensive, proven innovations:
    • Cisco NX-API supports a common programmatic approach across Cisco Nexus switches
    • Power-on autoprovisioning (POAP) enables touchless bootup and configuration of the switch, drastically reducing provisioning time
    • Advanced buffer monitoring reports real-time buffer utilization per port and per queue, which allows organizations to monitor traffic bursts and application traffic patterns
    • Complete Layer 3 unicast and multicast routing protocol suites are supported, including BGP, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Routing Information Protocol Version 2 (RIPv2), Protocol Independent Multicast sparse mode (PIM-SM), Source-Specific Multicast (SSM), and Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP)
    • Segment routing allows the network to forward Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) packets and perform traffic engineering without Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) traffic engineering (TE). It provides a control-plane alternative for increased network scalability and virtualization
