The Cisco Nexus 6004, the first switch in the family of Cisco Nexus 6000 Series, is a critical component of the Cisco Unified Data Center architecture, complementing the existing Cisco Nexus Family of switches. The Cisco Nexus 6004 platform extends the industry-leading innovations and versatility of the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series purpose-built 10 Gigabit Ethernet data center-class switches. In addition, the Cisco Nexus 6004 offers the industry's highest 40/10 Gigabit Ethernet and Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) port density in a compact energy-efficient form factor with integrated Layer 2 and Layer 3 features at wire speed, and low latency of ~1 microsecond for any packet size. With a choice of front-to-back or back-to-front airflow options, the switch is designed for a broad range of traditional data center and large-scale virtualized cloud deployments. It runs the industry-leading Cisco NX-OS software operating system, offering features and capabilities that are widely deployed worldwide.

The Cisco Nexus 6004 is a 4-rack-unit (4RU) 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet switch offering wire-speed performance for up to ninety-six 40 Gigabit Ethernet ports or three hundred eighty-four 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports (using QSFP breakout cables) for Ethernet and FCoE traffic with an overall throughput of 7.68 Tbps. The Cisco Nexus 6004 offers 48 fixed ports of 40 Gigabit Ethernet with the base of the chassis and 4 line-card expansion module (LEM) slots. Although the base chassis has 48 fixed 40 Gigabit Ethernet ports, customers can purchase a convenient twenty-four 40 Gigabit Ethernet port entry option to address the small-scale deployments. With two additional 12-port 40 Gigabit Ethernet software licenses, remaining 24 ports can be enabled to use all 48 ports of 40 Gigabit Ethernet on the base chassis. Thus Cisco Nexus 6004 chassis along with the LEMs offer incredible flexibility to scale the deployments, making it the only fully extensible fixed 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet platform in the industry.

The Cisco Nexus 6004 switch as a high-density 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE platform can be deployed in multiple scenarios: direct-attach 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet server-access and high-density FEX aggregation deployments, leaf and spine architectures, or compact aggregation to build a scalable Cisco Unified Fabric across a diverse set of physical and virtual server environments in data centers.
