Nexus 6000 & 5600
This session presents an in-depth study of the architecture of the Nexus 6000 and 5600 families of Data Centre switches and the Nexus 2000 Fabric Extender. Topics include internal architecture of the Nexus 6004/6001, 5000 and 5500, the architecture of fabric and port extenders as implemented in the Nexus 2000 and Adapter FEX, Unified I/O, and 10G cut-thru Layer 2 and Layer 3 Ethernet. This year's content will include more focus on the Nexus 6004 architecture. This session is designed for network engineers involved in network switching design and Data Centre architecture. An understanding of switching technologies and the basic operation of the Nexus 5000/5500 Series is assumed. Basic knowledge of routing protocols as well as traditional switching design is recommended.
