Product Review

The Cisco N9K-C92304QC offers a high-density configuration with 56 40G QSFP+ ports and 8 100G QSFP28 ports, catering to environments requiring extensive bandwidth and connectivity. However, its limit of 6,000 LPAM routes and 4,000 ingress ACL entries might not meet the needs of larger, more complex networks. The device supports a wide range of features including 1000 VRF instances and up to 64 ECMP paths, making it versatile for various network configurations, but the operational temperature range of 0 °C to 40 °C may restrict its deployment in environments with extreme temperature conditions.


The Cisco N9K-C92304QC is a high-capacity switch designed for demanding data center environments, offering a comprehensive blend of speed and density with its extensive connectivity options. This switch features 56 40G QSFP+ ports and 8 100G QSFP28 ports, providing ample bandwidth for high-throughput applications and scalability for future growth. It supports up to 6,000 LPAM routes, ensuring efficient network traffic management and routing capabilities. With support for 96,000 IP host entries and 92,000 MAC addresses, the N9K-C92304QC can handle large numbers of devices without compromising performance. Its capability to manage 8,000 multicast routes and the same number of IGMP Snooping Groups enables efficient distribution of multicast traffic across the network. The switch also offers comprehensive access control lists, with 4,000 ingress and 2,000 egress ACL entries, providing granular security controls to protect against unauthorized access and traffic. The hardware is designed to support a wide array of network configurations and requirements: - Accommodates a maximum of 4,096 VLANs, allowing for extensive network segmentation and security. - Supports 1,000 VRF instances, enabling multiple virtual routing and forwarding instances on the same physical device for network isolation and segmentation. - Allows for up to 32 links in a port channel, increasing bandwidth and providing link redundancy. The Cisco N9K-C92304QC excels in path diversity and redundancy, supporting up to 64 maximum Equal-Cost Multi-Path (ECMP) paths, 256 ECMP groups, and a remarkable 64,000 ECMP members, ensuring high availability and reliability of network connections. Additionally, the switch can configure up to 512 port channels, enhancing bandwidth and redundancy. For network monitoring and troubleshooting, the device supports four active SPAN sessions, allowing for real-time traffic analysis. It also supports a large number of VLANs in Rapid Per-VLAN Spanning Tree (RPVST) instances and numerous High Availability protocols, including 490 HSRP groups, ensuring network resilience and uptime. Other notable specifications include: - Support for 64 Multiple Spanning Tree (MST) instances and 1,023 Network Address Translation (NAT) entries, offering flexibility in network design and IP address management. - An operating temperature range from 0 °C to 40 °C and a storage temperature range from -40 °C to 70 °C, ensuring reliable operation in varied environmental conditions. - A maximum humidity tolerance from 5% to 85% (noncondensing) and an altitude operation range from 0 to 4000 meters, accommodating different atmospheric conditions without affecting performance. - A weight of 25.4 lbs, making it a substantial yet manageable component in any data center rack. In summary, the Cisco N9K-C92304QC is engineered to meet the needs of modern data centers, offering high-density connectivity, extensive routing and security features, and scalable performance to accommodate growth and technological advancements, making it a valuable asset for any organization looking to optimize their network infrastructure.
