I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The Cisco Nexus 5672UP offers 48 fixed 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports of which 16 ports can be unified ports (UP). All 48 fixed ports support classical Ethernet and FCoE. In addition, the 16 unified ports provide 8/4/2-Gbps Fibre Channel as well as 10 Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE connectivity options. The Cisco Nexus 5672UP also offers 6 ports of 40 Gbps using QSFP transceivers for Ethernet and FCoE support.

So, in short, it's a mix of things but the switch actually supports almost anything. From 1Gb to 10Gb Ethernet ports, just pick the correct transceiver (see below)


By the way, if you should not know, Unified Ports are ports which can support either Fibre Channel, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), or Ethernet (1Gb).

For transceivers, check the table with supported hardware in the latest release notes here

If my understanding is correct i can use 48 10Gbps ports with SFP+ modules.
Let me know if my understanding is correct.

Is there any document where i can refer for the type of SFPs which i can use this on the 48 ports 10G link.
If you have the link for this kindly share me the same.
Zephyr ICTCloud ArchitectCommented:
I gave the link in my first post, they are to be found in the release notes ... Follow the link and scroll down to the table, they will be under SFP+ Optical  or SFP+ Copper, depending on which you'll be using.
