Cisco C9300-NM-8X= Network Switch Module 10 Gigabit Ethernet

Cisco® Catalyst® 9300 Series

The Cisco® Catalyst® 9300 Series switches are Cisco’s lead stackable enterprise switching platform built for security, IoT, mobility, and cloud. They are the next generation of the industry’s most widely deployed switching platform. Catalyst 9300 Series switches form the foundational building block for Software-Defined Access (SD-Access), Cisco’s lead enterprise architecture. At up to 1TB, they are the industry’s highest-density stacking bandwidth solution with the most flexible uplink architecture. The Catalyst 9300 Series is the first optimized platform for high-density Wi-Fi 6 and 802.11ac Wave2. It sets new maximums for network scale. These switches are also ready for the future, with an x86 CPU architecture and more memory, enabling them to host containers and run third-party applications and scripts natively within the switch.

The Catalyst 9300 Series is designed for Cisco StackWise® technology, providing flexible deployment with support for nonstop forwarding with Stateful Switchover (NSF/SSO), for the most resilient architecture in a stackable (sub-50-ms) solution. The highly resilient and efficient power architecture features Cisco StackPower®, which delivers high-density Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), 60W Cisco Universal Power over Ethernet (Cisco UPOE) and 90W Cisco UPOE®+ ports. The switches are based on the Cisco Unified Access™ Data Plane 2.0 (UADP) architecture which not only protects your investment but also allows a larger scale and higher throughput. Catalyst 9300X models are based on a new ASIC, UADP 2.5sec, which adds Crypto support in hardware, including IPSEC. A modern operating system, Cisco IOS® XE with programmability offers advanced security capabilities and Internet of Things (IoT) convergence.

Switch models and configurations

Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series switches (C9300 SKUs) support optional network modules for uplink ports (Figure 2). These field-replaceable network modules with 25G and 40G speeds in the Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series enable greater architectural flexibility and infrastructure investment protection by allowing a nondisruptive migration from 10G to 25G and beyond. The default switch configuration does not include the network module.

Power supplies

Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series switches support dual redundant power supplies. The switches ship with one power supply by default, and the second power supply can be purchased when the switch is ordered or at a later time. If only one power supply is installed, it should always be in power supply bay #1. The switches also ship with three field-replaceable fans.


Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series switch models are designed for stacking switches as a single virtual switch, enabling customers to have a single management plane and control plane for up to 448 access ports.

SD-Access architecture

What if you could give time back to IT? Provide network access in minutes for any user or device to any application – without compromise? SD-Access is the industry’s first policy-based automation from network edge to cloud. Your foundation for your digital network, Cisco SD-Access. Built on the principles of the Cisco DNA, SD-Access provides end-to-end segmentation to keep user, device and application traffic separate without a redesign of the network. It automates user access policy so organizations can make sure the right policies are set for any user or device with any application across the network. This is accomplished with a single network fabric across LAN and WLAN which creates a consistent user experience anywhere without compromising on security.

There are many challenges today in managing the network to drive business outcomes. These limitations are due to manual configuration and fragmented tool offerings. SD-Access provides:

  • A transformational management solution that reduces operational expenses and enhances business agility
  • Consistent management of wired and wireless network provisioning and policy
  • Automated network segmentation and group-based policy
  • Contextual insights for fast issue resolution and capacity planning
  • Open and programmable interfaces for integration with third-party solutions
