Mellanox will supply the Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange with Spectrum switches running Cumulus and Mellanox Onyx operating systems, and the Mellanox NEO management system.

Mellanox's ConnectX-5 network cards will provide the best communication access to the stock exchange servers. The use of built-in data acceleration technology in the adapter cards will enable the maximum return on investment for the TASE's data centres.
The choice by Eli Kars, the communication and hardware infrastructure manager, and the technical staff of the Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange in Mellanox's advanced solutions was made primarily on the basis of technological leadership, which enables them to address both the immediate and future needs of the stock exchange.
