Information about the Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for Dell

The Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for Dell provides an extension of the Cisco Nexus switch fabric 
to the Dell blade servers.

The Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extenders behave as remote line cards for a parent Cisco Nexus switch. 
The Fabric Extenders are essentially extensions of the parent Cisco Nexus switch fabric, with the Fabric 
Extenders and the parent Cisco Nexus switch together forming a distributed modular system. The Cisco 
Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for Dell support is limited to the Cisco Nexus 5500 series of switches.

Each Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender connects via 10-Gigabit Ethernet to up to 16 servers within a 
Dell BladeEnclosure and contains 8 10-Gigabit Ethernet fabric uplinks towards the parent Cisco Nexus 
switch. Multiple low cost options are available for fabric connections between the Cisco Nexus B22 and 
the parent Cisco Nexus switch. Low-cost connections up to 10 meters can be made with copper Twin-ax
