Product Review

The Cisco N9K-X9464TX2 provides a high-performance networking solution with a throughput of 1.28 Tbps and 1.9 Bpps, supported by a packet buffer size of 12 MB, making it suitable for environments requiring fast data processing and transmission. With support for up to 128,000 LPM routes, 208,000 IP host entries, and up to 4096 VLANs, it offers extensive scalability for growing network demands. However, the requirement for four fabric modules to achieve maximum bandwidth and the relatively high power consumption of up to 350 W may increase operational costs and complexity for some network infrastructures.


The Cisco N9K-X9464TX2 is a high-performance network module designed to meet the demands of modern data centers. It features 32 ports of 40G QSFP, allowing for high-density, high-speed connectivity. This module is engineered to support up to 1.28 Terabits per second (Tbps) of bandwidth and 1.9 billion packets per second (Bpps), ensuring efficient data transfer and handling across the network. To achieve maximum bandwidth, the N9K-X9464TX2 requires four fabric modules. It comes equipped with a 12 MB packet buffer to manage data flow efficiently, reducing the risk of packet loss during peak traffic periods. The module supports a wide range of routing and switching capabilities, including: - Up to 128,000 Longest-Prefix-Match (LPM) routes - Up to 208,000 IP host entries - Up to 160,000 MAC address entries Furthermore, the Cisco N9K-X9464TX2 can handle between 4,000 to 32,000 multicast routes, with the range depending on whether Virtual Port Channel (VPC) is used. It also supports a similar range for Interior Gateway Management Protocol Snooping groups. The module's versatility extends to VLANs and routing, supporting up to 4,096 VLANs and 1,000 Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) instances. Network architects can utilize up to 512 port channels with as many as 32 links per channel. This flexibility allows for efficient network segmentation and load balancing. For monitoring and management, the N9K-X9464TX2 allows for 4 to 32 active Cisco SPAN sessions, enabling effective network traffic monitoring. It supports up to 64 MST instances, up to 507 RPVST instances, and up to 490 HRSP groups, providing comprehensive options for network redundancy and resilience. The module's design also includes support for up to 10,000 tunnel endpoints and VXLAN physical servers, facilitating scalable overlay networks and virtualized environments. The Cisco N9K-X9464TX2 is designed with operational efficiency in mind: - Weighing 10.01 lbs, it is relatively lightweight for easy installation and maintenance. - It operates on a typical power supply of 288 W, with a maximum power consumption of 350 W, optimizing energy use while maintaining high performance. - The module boasts an impressive Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 630,150 hours, indicating a reliable long-term operation. - It features hot-swappable capability, allowing for uninterrupted service during upgrades or replacements. - Designed with port-side intake airflow, it ensures optimal cooling for sustained performance. - The module is RoHS-6 compliant, adhering to strict environmental standards. In summary, the Cisco N9K-X9464TX2 is a powerful network module offering high-speed connectivity, extensive routing and switching capabilities, and efficient operation. Its design and features make it a suitable choice for data centers looking to enhance network performance and reliability.
