The Cisco Nexus 3172TQ switch is a dense, high-performance Layer 2 and 3 10 and 40-Gbps switch that is a member of the Cisco Nexus 3100 switches. The Nexus 3100 switch is the Cisco Nexus 3000 series switches and offers improved port density, scalability, and features compared to the first-generation switches. It supports both forward and reverse airflow schemes with AC and DC power inputs. The Cisco Nexus 3172TQ is well suited for data centers that require a cost-effective, power-efficient line-rate Layer 2 and 3 top-of-rack (ToR) switch.

Cisco Nexus 3172TQ is a 10GBASE-T switch with 48 10GBASE-T ports and 6 Quad SFP+ (QSFP+) ports. This switch is well suited for customers who want to reuse existing copper cabling while migrating from 1-Gbps to 10-Gbps servers.
