Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) is a data center networking solution that offers a unique approach to networking. ACI uses a centralized policy model to allow administrators to define networking policies once and have them automatically applied to all devices in the network. This simplifies network administration and reduces the possibility of human error.
Cisco ACI switches are available in a variety of form factors, including fixed-port and modular switches. Fixed-port switches are available in 1, 10, 25, 40, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet versions. Modular switches are available in 1, 10, 25, 40, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet versions, and they offer the ability to add additional ports as needed.
Cisco ACI switches offer a number of features that make them well-suited for data center networking. They offer high bandwidth and low latency, and they can be easily scaled to support very large networks. Cisco ACI switches are purpose-built for use in switched fabric architectures, and they offer a number of features that make them well-suited for data center networking.
