Cisco ACI Nexus Part ID Naming Convention

Hello,

 

Does anyone know any doco explaining what all the letters/numbers mean in Nexus Part IDs?

Example: 

N9K-C93180YC-EX
N9K-C93108TC-EX
N9K-C93180LC-EX
N9K-C93180YC-FX

 

So what is T, L, Y, FX vs EX?

 

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

The naming convention can be mostly found in this doc: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/switches/nexus-9000-series-switches/white-paper-c11-739134.html#_Toc484532920

 

 

Following the naming conventions for the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series, the characters in the Cisco Nexus 9300-EX platform product names indicate supported port speeds or additional hardware capabilities:
●   Q: Native 40-Gbps front-panel ports
●   Y: Native 25-Gbps front-panel ports
●   C: Native 100-Gbps front-panel ports
●   L: Native 50-Gbps front-panel ports
●   T: 100M, 1GT, and 10GT
●   X (after the hyphen): Cisco NetFlow and data analytics capabilities

 

As for -EX and -FX in general, they are using different ASICs.

 

Thanks,

Jenny Ngo

T/P/Y - done the PHY type (Copper, Optic and speed etc).

T = BaseT

P = SPF+

Y = Fiber ports

The last notation (E/EX/FX) designates the generation of switch (ASIC capability).
