Cisco Nexus 7000 and Nexus 7700 Line Cards

Nexus 7000 and Nexus 7700 support various types of I/O modules.

And there are two types of I/O modules: the M-I/O modules and the F-I/O modules.


Each has different performance metrics and features.

Table 1-8 shows the comparison between M-Series modules.
