Cisco Nexus® 9508 Switch Performance Test
By Nick Lippis
Cisco recently launched its Nexus® 9500 series of data center switches which Cisco promises offers the highest port density of 10/40GbE and future 100GbE—the most power efficient, the
most programmable and fastest packet forwarding modular data center switch in the industry. To verify these claims, Cisco engaged the Lippis/Ixia team to test the new Nexus® 9508 modular data center switch. We found that the Nexus® 9508 sets new records in data center modular switch performance. In short, it’s the fastest modular switch under the Milky Way.
