Does CISCO Nexus 3548P-10G L3 Switch Supports IVP6? What are some other alternative L3 Switches with same or slightly higher hardware configuration as CISCO Nexus 3548P-10G and IPV6 support

    Surprisingly (at least I was surprised), it does not run any v6 routing protocols. So I'd say support was "limited." Other product recommendations are off-topic for this forum.

I'm responding because you're asking for alternatives. Have you considered the Brocade VDX 6740 or 6740-T? Both come with a very similar CLI to the Nexus, and are extremely affordable when compared to the N5K, yet way more solid than the N3K.

They also come with the layer 3 capabilities available off the bat. No need for additional licensing or hardware modules for routing.

  • Product or resource recommendations are explicitly off-topic here, as they are on most SE sites. There is Hardware Recommendations for this sort of thing.
