Mellanox Technology Solutions
High Performance Computing (HPC)
High-performance computing encompasses advanced computation over parallel processing, enabling faster execution of highly computing intensive tasks such as machine learning, climate research, molecular modelling, physical simulations, cryptanalysis, geophysical modelling, automotive and aerospace design, financial modelling, virtual reality and more.
Mellanox’s networking solutions based on InfiniBand, Ethernet, or RoCE (RDMA over Converged Ethernet) provide the best price, performance, and power value proposition for network and storage I/O processing capabilities up to 56GbE/s.
Mellanox has supported the government's IT networking needs for more than 10 years and established itself as a trusted leader in delivering high-performance connectivity solutions.
As new, faster storage technologies have evolved, the storage bottleneck has moved from the storage media to the I/O interconnect. While interconnect technologies have sped up considerably, they commonly remain the limiting factor in increasing the performance of many data centres.
InfiniBand has emerged as an ideal solution for many embedded applications such as high-speed I/O links, reliable backplanes, and scalable switch fabrics.
High-performance computing clusters require a high-performance interconnect technology that provides high bandwidth, low latency, and low CPU overhead, resulting in high CPU utilization for the application’s computing operations.
ConnectX®-6 EN Single/Dual-Port Adapter Supporting 200Gb/s Ethernet
Intelligent ConnectX-6 adapter cards, the newest additions to the Mellanox Smart Interconnect suite and supporting Co-Design and In-Network Compute, introduce new acceleration engines for maximizing Cloud, Web 2.0, Big Data, Storage and Machine Learning applications.
ConnectX-6 EN supports two ports of 200Gb/s Ethernet connectivity, sub-600 nanosecond latency, and 200 million messages per second, providing the highest performance and most flexible solution for the most demanding applications and markets.
ConnectX-6 offers Mellanox Accelerated Switching and Packet Processing (ASAP2) Direct technology to offload the vSwitch/vRouter by handling the data plane in the NIC hardware while maintaining the control plane unmodified. As a result, significantly higher vSwitch/vRouter performance is achieved without the associated CPU load.
ConnectX-6 offers a crucial innovation to network security by providing block-level encryption. Data in transit undergoes encryption and decryption as it is stored or retrieved. The encryption/decryption is offloaded by the ConnectX-6 hardware, saving latency and offloading CPU. ConnectX-6 block-level encryption offload enables protection between users sharing the same resources, as different encryption keys can be used.
Machine learning relies on especially high throughput and low latency to train deep neural networks and to improve recognition and classification accuracy. As the first adapter to deliver 200Gb/s throughput, ConnectX-6 is the perfect solution to provide machine learning applications with the levels of performance and scalability that they require.

LinkX® Cables and Transceivers
The Mellanox LinkX product family of cables and transceivers provides the industry’s most complete line of 10, 25, 40, 50, 100, 200, and 400Gb interconnect products for Cloud, Web 2.0, Enterprise, telco, and storage data centers applications. They are often used to link top-of-rack switches downwards to servers, storage & appliances and upwards in switch-to-switch applications.
Products are available in both Ethernet and InfiniBand protocols and SFP & QSFP form factors.
Copper Direct Attach Cables (DAC)
Mellanox LinkX DACs make 100Gb/s deployments as easy as 10Gb/s. DACs are widely used in data centers to connect servers to the Top of the Rack (TOR) switch because they are passive, consume zero power and have the lowest latency. DAC cables are the lowest cost way to create 100G links. Mellanox offers a wide range of products for 0.5m to 7m reaches and in SFP and QSFP form factors.
LinkX certified cables are 100% tested in actual Mellanox systems to ensure optimal signal integrity and the best end-to-end performance. Mellanox DAC cables are designed for use in super computers that have very stringent requirements. IEEE standards require 1E-12 Bit Error Ratio (BER), but all Mellanox cables are tested to 1E-15 which is 1,000 times fewer bit errors than competitors. Mellanox passive copper cables offer trouble free installation, long-term reliable operation and they work with 3rd-party switches and adapters.
Check out our new low-loss LSZH DAC cables supporting the IEEE CA-N and CA-L specifications that when used at <2 meters enables running with no FEC or reduced FEC to save latency.
DAC splitter cables & adapters
Mellanox LinkX DAC Splitter cables make it easy to connect 10, 25, and 50Gb/s servers/storage and appliances using network adapters to 40G & 100G Top-Of-Rack (TOR) switches. Passive DAC copper cables consume zero power and offers the lowest signal latency. Mellanox offers a wide range of products to support reaches from 0.5m to 7m for every application need.
In addition to meeting or exceeding IEEE standards, LinkX certified products are 100% tested in actual Mellanox systems to ensure optimal signal integrity and the best end-to-end performance. IEEE standards require 1E-12 Bit Error Ratio (BER), but all Mellanox cables are tested to 1E-15 which is 1,000X fewer bit errors than competitors. Mellanox DAC splitters offer trouble free installation, long-term reliable operation and they work with 3rd-party switches and adapters.
Active Optical Cables (AOCs)
Active Optical Cables (AOC) are widely used in HPCs and have more recently became popular in hyperscale, enterprise and storage systems as a high-speed, plug & play solution with longer reaches than Direct Attach Copper (DAC) cables.
Optical transceivers convert electrical data signals into blinking laser light which is then transmitted over an optical fiber. Optical transceivers have a detachable optical connector to disconnect the fiber from the transceiver. AOCs bond the fiber connection inside the transceiver end, creating a complete cable assembly much like a DAC cable, only with a 3-200-meter reach capability. AOCs main benefit is the very long reach of optical technology, while acting like a simple, “plug & play” copper cable. A complete 2 transceiver AOC including fiber cable assembly is usually priced near the price of only a single connectorized transceiver.
