cisco nexus 6004Cisco has presented refreshment in its networking equipment line with a new focus on 40-Gigabit Ethernet, cloud-to-cloud management, open source networking and software-defined networking (SDN).

These new enhancement shows company’s commitment to provide high-density 40-GbE networking solutions to its clients so that they can easily migrate to cloud and can get access to expandable IT resources. The company has introduced innovative products like Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Switches, the industry’s highest density 40 Gigabit Layer2/Layer 3 fixed switch, to seamless, secure and simple hybrid cloud functionality of Cisco Nexus 1000V InterCloud for connecting private enterprise and service provider clouds. Additionally, the company also added rich services modules to its Nexus 7000 Series, and 40-gigabit uplink extensions to its Nexus 5000 and 2000 product lines.

Cisco’s Unified Fabric portfolio includes  an unequaled end-to-end 40-gigabit solution providing design flexibility for virtual and cloud deployments of converged networks with 10G and 40G FCoE support, while enabling greater visibility in the network.

Earlier last year, in June 2012, Cisco has offered Cisco Open Network Environment (Cisco ONE), the industry’s most comprehensive approach to open networking, programmability and application-awareness.

When trends such as cloud, video, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and big data are picking up, Cisco ONE, an open network platform plays central role in building programmatic control and application awareness within the network. It offers flexible, application-driven customization of network infrastructure to help enterprise and service provider customers’ business objectives such as increased service velocity, resource optimization, and faster monetization of new services.

These technological advancements are very crucial as these help scaleextend, and open the networking fabric of data center, cloud and provider environments.  These enable customers to connect to multi-cloud and hybrid environments.
