Product Review

The Cisco N9K-X9464PX offers a high-performance networking solution with its 1.28 Tbps throughput and support for up to 48 1/10G SFP+ plus 4 QSFP ports, catering to dense networking environments requiring high bandwidth. However, achieving maximum bandwidth necessitates the installation of four fabric modules, potentially increasing the total cost of ownership for some deployments. Additionally, its comprehensive feature set, including support for up to 208,000 IP host entries and 10000 VXLAN tunnel endpoints, makes it versatile for complex network architectures, though the requirement for significant power consumption (up to 300 W) and adequate cooling might limit its deployment in smaller or power-constrained setups.


The Cisco N9K-X9464PX is a high-performance network switch designed for modern data centers, offering a blend of speed, flexibility, and efficiency. It is equipped with 48 1/10G SFP+ ports complemented by 4 QSFP ports, catering to diverse networking requirements. This switch is engineered to facilitate high-density, multi-rate, data center interconnectivity, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. To unlock its maximum bandwidth potential, the N9K-X9464PX requires the installation of four fabric modules. It delivers impressive performance metrics, including a throughput of 1.28 terabits per second (Tbps) and a forwarding rate of 1.9 billion packets per second (Bpps), ensuring swift data transmission across the network. The device is designed with a 12 MB packet buffer to accommodate high-volume traffic, reducing congestion and improving overall network efficiency. The N9K-X9464PX supports a large number of routing and networking features: - It can manage up to 128,000 longest-prefix-match (LPM) routes, facilitating efficient network routing and addressing. - The switch is capable of handling up to 208,000 IP host entries, allowing for extensive device connectivity within networks. - It supports up to 160,000 MAC address entries, providing ample capacity for device identification and management across the network. In terms of scalability, the Cisco N9K-X9464PX shines with its ability to accommodate a wide range of network configurations and sizes. It supports up to 4,096 VLANs, enabling extensive network segmentation and security. The switch can also manage up to 1,000 virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) instances, offering significant flexibility in traffic segmentation and routing. For larger setups, it allows for up to 512 port channels and 32 links per port channel, enhancing link aggregation and redundancy. The switch also excels in multicast routing, with support for 4,000 to 32,000 multicast routes, varying with the use of Virtual Port Channel (VPC) configurations. This flexibility ensures optimized multicast data distribution and network efficiency. Additionally, it can manage a considerable number of Interior Gateway Management Protocol Snooping groups, further enhancing its multicast capabilities. Other notable features of the N9K-X9464PX include: - Support for up to 64 Multiple Spanning Tree (MST) instances and 507 Rapid Per-VLAN Spanning Tree (RPVST) instances, ensuring robust network resilience and loop prevention. - The ability to manage up to 490 HSRP (Hot Standby Router Protocol) groups, providing high availability through failover capabilities. - Support for up to 10,000 tunnel endpoints and VXLAN physical servers, enabling scalable network virtualization and segmentation. The device is designed with operational efficiency in mind, with a typical power consumption of 160W and a maximum of 300W. It boasts an impressive mean time between failures (MTBF) of 880,290 hours, indicating high reliability. The N9K-X9464PX is hot-swappable and features port-side intake airflow, allowing for easy maintenance and optimal cooling. It is also compliant with RoHS-6 standards, ensuring environmental safety.
