Product Review

The Cisco N55-D160L3-V2 is a high-density 160 Gbps network module designed for the Cisco Nexus 5500 series switches. Its hardware features include support for up to 32 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity using SFP+ transceivers, as well as support for 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity through QSFP+ transceivers. The module also features advanced traffic management and Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities, including support for up to 32,000 concurrent VLANs. Its unique selling point is its ability to provide high-speed connectivity and advanced traffic management features in a high-density module, making it ideal for data center and cloud environments that require high-bandwidth connectivity.


The Cisco N55-D160L3-V2 is a line card designed for use with Nexus 5500 series switches. It features 16 ports of 40 Gigabit Ethernet, allowing for high-speed data transfer rates between connected devices. The card uses quad small form-factor pluggable (QSFP) connectors, which can be used to connect to other QSFP-enabled devices, such as switches or servers. The line card supports a range of advanced features, including virtual port channels (vPCs) and FabricPath technology. vPCs allow multiple physical links to be combined into a single logical link, increasing bandwidth and providing redundancy in case of link failure. FabricPath is a scalable data center interconnect technology that enables efficient forwarding of traffic between data centers. The N55-D160L3-V2 also supports Cisco's Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) software, which provides centralized management and monitoring of network devices. The line card is hot-swappable, allowing it to be replaced or added to the switch without disrupting network traffic. Overall, the Cisco N55-D160L3-V2 is a high-performance line card that is well-suited for data center environments that require fast and reliable connectivity. Its advanced features and compatibility with other Cisco devices make it a versatile and valuable addition to any network infrastructure.
