Mellanox Ships More Than 100,000 Cables for Next Generation 100Gb/s Networks
Milestone Signals Broad Adoption of 100Gb/s Networks by Hyperscale
SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel--(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, today announced that it has
shipped more than 100,000 units of its Direct Attach Copper Cables
(DACs) to serve the growing demand of hyperscale Web 2.0 and cloud
"Hyperscale customers are selecting Mellanox cables due to our advanced
manufacturing automation technologies which enable us to achieve higher
quality, lower costs and to deliver in high volume," said Amir Prescher,
senior vice president of business development and general manager of the
interconnect business at Mellanox. "Copper cables are the most cost
effective way to connect new 25G and 50G servers to TOR switches as they
enable the entire new generation of 100Gb/s networks."
Mellanox offers a full line of 10, 25, 40, 50 and 100Gb/s copper cabling
for server and storage interconnect. The two most popular options are
splitter cables, which feature a 100Gb/s connector at one end for
plugging into a switch port and either two 50Gb/s connectors or four
25Gb/s connectors at the other end for connecting to 25G or 50G servers.
Widely used by hyperscale customers to connect servers to the top of the
rack (TOR) switch, DACs have lower cost and zero power consumption when
compared to optical cables and transceivers. The superior performance
and low 1E-15 BER eliminates the need for FEC, which would add latency
to the critical server-TOR link.
Mellanox has ramped up into high volume production for 100Gb/s products
faster than its competitors because of in-house design expertise for key
interconnect components. Mellanox designs their own copper cables, as
well as the drivers, TIAs, silicon photonics chips, packaging, and
modules for optical products. All qualification and testing is performed
by Mellanox. Deploying advanced manufacturing automation technologies
helps to achieve higher quality and lower costs. This, "end to end"
control of the supply chain and manufacturing lines ensures Mellanox can
scale to meet market demand.
Mellanox Technologies (NASDAQ: MLNX) is a leading supplier of end-to-end
