Mellanox Expands LinkXTM Family of Cables to Add Flexibility to Data Center Connectivity
SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel --(Business Wire)--
Mellanox (News - Alert)® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of
high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center
servers and storage systems, today announced the general availability of
Direct Attach Cables (DACs) with colored jackets and colored pull tabs,
supporting interconnect speeds of 10, 40 and 56Gb/s for both Ethernet
and InfiniBand data center networks. The new colored version reduces the
chance of error in connecting server, switch and routing ports, shortens
cluster installation time, and simplifies interconnect debugging and
"The new colored cables can ease data center management and provide the
ability to easily distinguish between different types of data traffic,
applications or equipment, making data center deployments and
maintenance more simple," said Gilad Shainer, vice president of
marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "The new cables are additions to our
comprehensive portfolio of 10, 40, and 56Gb/s copper and fiber cables,
serving both Ethernet and InfiniBand infrastructures."
To ensure that every LinkX cable or transceiver works the first time and
every time, Mellanox subjects its products to a full system test in a
stressed environment. Network engineers save time by eliminating the
tedious debugging time needed for new installations with untested
products. With LinkX products, installation experts can bring up new
clusters quickly, without worrying about interconnect problems or
All LinkX interconnect products endure full system testing to Bit Error
Rate (BER) 10-15 in order to maximize overall data center
performance. BER 10-15 provides 1,000X fewer transmission
errors than many competing products. Fewer transmission errors translate
to higher system performance and more revenue generating traffic.
Whether the application is Ethernet or InfiniBand, cloud or Web 2.0,
server to top-of-rak, server to storage or switch to switch, LinkX
interconnect products maximize ROI with superior performance,
flexibility and scalability.
