Cisco Nexus C3264C-E

2 rack unit switch beauty shot

Data Sheet date Oct 19, 2018

As of Oct 25, this switch is not on the price list and so not quite orderable. It is a 64-port 100 Gb/s switch with 16 ports capable of MACsec and two SFP ports. Two RJ-45 ports for console and management Enet are on the rear [not shown]. Internally it uses a single Tomahawk-II switch ASIC. A slide deck from a June 2018 talk at CiscoLive! in Orlando explains the role of merchant silicon in the Nexus product line.
