Extending Cisco Unified Fabric to the data center, the Cisco Nexus 3000 series of fabric extenders provides 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) wire-speed Layer 2 and 3 switching for data center top-of-rack deployments. Made up of the Nexus 3000, high-density Nexus 3100, and the ultra-low-latency Nexus 3500, the Cisco Nexus 3000 series brings new capabilities to the data center. As highly programmable, dense fixed-port switches, Cisco 3000 switches deliver simplified management, advanced monitoring, enhanced network visibility, and lower power consumption that is all supported by a consistent NX-OS.

Cisco Nexus 3100 switches are next-generation ToR switches that provide 1/10/40 GE high performance, density, mobility, and rich programmability. Ideal for deployments that have a wide range of densities at line-rate and connectivity speeds, the Nexus 3100 series assists in enabling mobility of virtual workloads at scale. The Cisco 3100 series also features operational efficiency, enhanced programmability, improved agility and resiliency, and flexible deployment options.
Offering the lowest latency in the industry, Cisco Nexus 3500 series switches provide line-rate Layer 2 and 3 switching that takes use of the unique Cisco Algo Boost technology. Ideal for deployments that require ultra-low-latency switching, the Nexus 3500 series consists of 1/10 GE Tor switches that contain performance visibility, simplified deployment and configuration, and mission-critical features such as Network Address Translation (NAT), and multicast support.
