How We See IT:

The 2248TP GE Fabric Extender expands the Cisco Nexus 2000 line to provide unified server access across a wide range of environments, leaving you with a scalable, easy-to-manage and cost-effective outfit.


The 2248TP GE Fabric Extenders can work alongside parent Cisco Nexus 5000 series or 7000 switches making them a useful piece of equipment regardless of your current equipment level. The extenders can be mixed and matched with a parent switch to configure various connectivity options. The 2248TP GE Fabric Extender behaves as a remote I/O module for the parent switch. Since the 2248TP GE Fabric Extender is simply an extension of the parent Cisco Nexus switch fabric, it works together with the parent to form a Virtual Modular System. This unified system allows you to easily scale and customize your configurations to fit your unique infrastructure needs.

Simplified Operation

Within the modular system created by the 2248TP GE Fabric Extender, the Cisco Nexus 2000 series forwards all traffic to the parent over 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks. Handing over the traffic to the parent switch enables traffic to be tailored to the regulations established on the parent switch with a single point of management. The 2248TP GE Fabric Extender also includes auto configuration, ensuring that your system will be concise and easy to manage.

Cost-Effective Functionality

By utilizing fabric extenders, you’ll optimize your inter-rack cabling, resulting in reduced data center costs and a smaller footprint for your business. The 2248TP GE Fabric Extender’s scalable server access layer strategy for Gigabit, Ethernet, and mixed Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet environments allows efficient scaling to help you decrease operational expenses.
