From a networking perspective, the Cisco UCS 6200 series uses a cut-through architecture, supporting deterministic, low-latency, line-rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet on all ports, independent of packet size and enabled services. The product family supports Cisco low-latency, lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet unified network fabric capabilities, which increase the reliability, efficiency, and scalability of Ethernet networks. The fabric interconnect supports multiple traffic classes over a lossless Ethernet fabric from the blade through the interconnect. Significant TCO savings come from an FCoE-optimized server design in which network interface cards (NICs), host bus adapters (HBAs), cables, and switches can be consolidated.
The Cisco Nexus 6248UP fabric interconnect is a one-rack-unit (1 RU) 10 Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE switch offering up to 960-Gbps throughput. The switch has 32 1/10-Gbps fixed Ethernet and FCoE ports and one expansion slot.
