Product Review

The Cisco N77-C7702 offers a versatile port configuration, including 48 x 10 Gbps, 24 x 40 Gbps, and 12 x 100 Gbps, catering to diverse network demands while ensuring compatibility with all Cisco Nexus 7700 switch modules. However, the lack of power supply and fabric modules necessitates additional investments for full operation and scalability. Its integrated cable management system and front-to-back airflow design facilitate efficient cable organization and thermal management within a compact 3 RU form factor, optimizing space and cooling in dense network environments.


The Cisco N77-C7702 is a vital component in the Cisco Nexus 7700 series, designed to meet the demands of modern data centers. This product is a two-slot chassis offering efficient cable management and a front-to-back airflow system that ensures optimal cooling for high-performance operations. Despite lacking an inbuilt power supply, this chassis accommodates a variety of switch modules, enhancing its adaptability in diverse networking environments. Key hardware specifications include: - Chassis with two available slots for enhanced modularity and scalability. - A fan tray to support the system's cooling requirements. - Integrated cable management system for organized and efficient cable routing. The port configuration of the Cisco N77-C7702 is versatile, featuring 48 ports of 10 Gbps, 24 ports of 40 Gbps, and 12 ports of 100 Gbps, ensuring high-speed connectivity options for a wide range of network demands. This chassis is compatible with all Cisco Nexus 7700 Switch Modules, allowing for a highly customizable setup according to specific network requirements. In terms of software, the chassis operates on Cisco NX-OS Software Release 7.2 or later, providing a stable and secure operating system designed to support advanced features and protocols. The system forwarding capacity is optimized for line-rate performance on all I/O modules, highlighting its capability to handle extensive data without bottlenecks. The maximum local switching capacity of the chassis is 2.4 Tbps, underlining its high-performance credentials. However, it's important to note that the maximum inter-slot switching capacity is not applicable due to the absence of fabric modules in this configuration. Physically, the chassis has a 3 RU form factor, with dimensions of 5.15 x 17.3 x 29.1 inches and a weight of 37.5 lb for the chassis only. It is designed to operate within a temperature range of 0 °C to 40 °C and can function in environments with relative humidity levels from 5% to 95% (noncondensing). The operating altitude range extends from -500 to 13,123 feet, and it meets seismic zone 4 per GR63 standards, ensuring reliability in a variety of physical conditions. Regarding storage, the chassis can be kept in temperatures ranging from -40 °C to 70 °C, with a relative humidity range of 5% to 95% (noncondensing), offering flexibility in storage conditions. The heat dissipation maximum of 6650 BTU/Hour indicates the chassis's efficiency in managing thermal output, crucial in maintaining performance stability. In summary, the Cisco N77-C7702 chassis is a compact yet powerful solution for modern data center networking needs. Its support for a wide range of switch modules, combined with a high-capacity port configuration and compatibility with advanced Cisco software, makes it a versatile foundation for building scalable, high-performance networks.
