With the expanding bandwidth needs that virtualization and cloud technologies have applied to the data center network, staying ahead of the curve is important to maintain a competitive advantage. This WP introduces products from Cisco and Panduit that address these needs, maps the logical designs to the physical layout and displays these products deployed within the data center network. The first section of this document introduces the Cisco Nexus® 9000 Series Switches and typical deployment scenarios and use cases. The second section describes the cabling scenarios and the optics needed for the interworking of the products from both companies. The last section of the document summarizes some Panduit product offerings and next steps.
