Mellanox Technologies Ltd of Sunnyvale, CA, USA and Yokneam, Israel (a supplier of end-to-end Ethernet and InfiniBand interconnect solutions for servers, storage systems and hyper-converged infrastructure) has begun shipping 200GbE Ethernet and InfiniBand HDR LinkX optical transceivers, active optical cables (AOCs) and direct attach copper cables (DACs) for use in upcoming 200Gb/s systems. Additionally, Mellanox has begun shipping 400G QSFP-DD DAC cables for next-generation systems.

LinkX is part of the Mellanox ‘end-to-end’ ecosystem including Spectrum2 200GbE and Quantum HDR systems and ConnectX-6 network adapters. The new LinkX 200Gb/s product line provides comprehensive options for switch, server and storage network connectivity for HDR InfiniBand and 200/400GbE infrastructures.

Mellanox is showcasing its complete LinkX product line of 100G, 200G and 400G products in booth 1A22-1 at the China International Optoelectronic Exposition (CIOE 2018) in Shenzhen, China (5-8 September) and in booth 432 at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC 2018) in Rome, Italy (24-26 September):

  • 200G SR4/HDR transceiver: Designed and manufactured by Mellanox, the 4x50G PAM4 transceiver uses the QSFP56 form factor and forms the basis for transceivers and AOC products for Mellanox’s upcoming 200G systems.
  • 200GbE and HDR DAC and AOC cables: Designed and manufactured by Mellanox, both straight and y-splitter 100GbE and HDR100 form factors are being exhibited.
  • 400GbE DAC Cables: Mellanox kicks off its LinkX 400GbE line by shipping its 400G 8x50G PAM4 DAC cables in the QSFP-DD form factor.
  • Live demos: At ECOC, Mellanox is hosting a live demonstration with Keysight/Ixia showing 200Gb/s SR4 transceivers and 400Gb/s QSFP-DD DAC cables.
  • 400G SR8 transceiver: Mellanox-designed, 8-channel parallel transceiver are on display.
  • Low-loss DAC cables: The firm is extending what is claimed to be one of the industry’s largest offerings of interconnect products, with new low-loss DAC cables that enable simplified or even FEC-less links for Mellanox’s SN2000 series of 25/50/100G network switches and ConnectX network adapters. The new cables offer lengths up to 5m and support the IEEE CA-N and CA-L specifications, enabling considerable interconnect latency savings.

Mellanox is also displaying its full line of 25/50/100Gb/s cables and transceivers for hyperscale and data-center applications:

  • LinkX 25G/50G/100Gb/s DAC & AOC cables and SR, SR4, PSM4, CWDM4 and LR4 transceivers;
  • DAC and AOC breakout cables for 100Gb/s to 4x25Gb/s and 2x50Gb/s;
  • DynamiX QSA Adapter, to convert any QSFP port to support an SFP-based DAC, AOC or transceiver available in 10G and 25G versions
