The Cisco Nexus 6001T switch is a 1 RU 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet switch offering wire-speed performance for up to sixty-four 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports (using Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable breakout cables) for Ethernet and FCoE traffic, with an overall throughput of 1.28 terabits per second. The Cisco Nexus 6001T offers 48 fixed 1/10G BASE-T and four 40 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP+ ports. Each 40 Gigabit Ethernet port can be split into four 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports using a QSFP breakout cable. The Cisco Nexus 6001T delivers low port-to-port latency of approximately 3.3 microsecond and low jitter independent of packet size using cut-through switching architecture and with features enabled. QSFP interface supports 1 microsecond latency. The hardware of 6001T is capable of supporting FCoE over 10G BASE-T interface.
The Cisco Nexus 6001T can be deployed in multiple scenarios - direct-attach 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet server access and high-density fabric extender aggregation deployments, leaf and spine designs, and
