Cisco Nexus 2248PQ 10GE Fabric Extender

Cost Effective Access Layer, 40 GE Connectivity

The Cisco Nexus 2248PQ provides 48 1 or 10 Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel Over Ethernet (FCoE) Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+) server ports, and four QSFP+ (16 10 GE SFP+) uplink ports in a compact one-rack-unit (1 RU) form factor.

The combination of the Cisco Nexus 2248PQ and upstream Cisco Nexus 5000 Series Switches and Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Switches provides a cost-effective access layer and scalable strategy for 10 GE and FCoE at the server access layer. It also helps to enable a smooth migration to a 40 GE network fabric.
