Cisco introduced additions to its data center networking portfolio that address these needs and deliver unmatched architectural flexibility and scale for physical, virtual or cloud computing environments.
One new highlight of many is the Second generation of Cisco Nexus 7000 Series.
Many of today's emerging applications require data centers to scale from a few hundred to several thousand server nodes, while also meeting the unique demands of new IT models such as Cloud Computing, the growth of video traffic and high expectations of more connected mobile users.

The new Fabric 2 module and new high density L2/L3 10GbE F2 Series line card for the Nexus 7000 Series offer the industry's highest performance (768 Line Rate L2/L3 10GbE ports in a single Nexus 7000 Series chassis) and reduced power per port (less than 10W per 10GE port.) Combined with integrated FabricPath and Fabric Extender (FEX) support, the Cisco fabric architecture delivers unparalleled scale and operational simplicity.
