Accelink Adopts Mellanox's Low-Power, Silicon Photonics Optical
Engine to Meet Growing Demand of Hyperscale Web 2.0 and Cloud Optical
SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel & WUHAN, China--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of
high-performance, end-to-end smart interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, and Accelink Technologies,
Co., Ltd. (SHENZHEN: 002281.SZ), a leading Chinese manufacturer of
end-to-end optoelectronics components, today introduced a 1550nm
100Gb/s PSM4 transceiver based on the silicon photonics optical engine
from Mellanox. Serving the growing demand of hyperscale Web 2.0 and
cloud interconnects, the new Accelink transceiver provides customers
with an additional source and full interoperability with PSM4
transceivers from Mellanox.
"We are delighted to announce Accelink as a partner and customer for our
optical engine," said Amir Prescher, senior vice president of business
development and general manager of the interconnect business at
Mellanox. "PSM4 represents the highest volume, most cost effective and
flexible 100Gb/s transceiver for single mode fiber in data center
applications. Customers benefit by having more supplier options;
Mellanox and Accelink both benefit by expanding the market for 100Gb/s
"Chinese Web 2.0 and datacenters are transitioning to 100Gb/s networks
so the timing is perfect for us," remarked Zhang Jun, General Manager at
Accelink. "The fully qualified Mellanox optical engine significantly
reduced our time to market. With no lenses, isolators or hermetic
packages, the Mellanox solution is easier to assemble and lower cost
than competitor solutions."
The Mellanox optical engine solution was announced earlier this year at
OFC 2017. The components are fully qualified for use in low-cost,
electronics-style packaging, ensuring a low-risk, and quick time to
market. Because the Mellanox silicon photonics platform eliminates the
need for complex optical alignment of lenses, isolators, and laser
subassemblies, customers can scale to high volume manufacturing easier
and faster than using traditional technologies.
Mellanox will be exhibiting at the China International Optoelectronics
Exhibition (CIOE), September 6-9, 2017, Shenzhen, China. The new
Accelink transceivers will be showcased at the Mellanox booth #1A22-1,
The Mellanox booth will feature:
