The new products include the following:
In addition, there were live demonstrations of 200G HDR AOCs, dual-port 200GbE/HDR and dual-port 100G SFP-DD ConnectX-6 network adapters.
"Our 200G HDR InfiniBand cables and transceivers have begun volume shipments for use in critical low-latency applications such as HPC, Hyperscale, and Artificial Intelligence", Eyal Babish, Senior Vice President of Operations and Hardware Engineering of Mellanox Technologies, stated. "Our full line of 25/50/100G cables and transceivers are receiving tremendous adoption in China, Webscale businesses, Cloud computing networks, and with OEMs worldwide. We are seeing the transition to 200G just beginning and 400G will soon follow. Customers select Mellanox because of our high-speed experience, our capacity to ship in volume, and the quality of our products."
All Mellanox cables and transceivers are designed for very low Bit Error Ratios (BER) of 1E-15, about 1,000 times lower than the IEEE industry standard of 1E-12. They are being demonstrated with Ixia Solutions Group, Keysight Technologies' AresONE 8-port, 400GbE QSFP-DD test system.
"Ixia is pleased to work closely with Mellanox to evolve the emerging interconnect solutions such as OSFP, QSFP-DD, and QSFP56 for live demonstrations at OFC this year. Showing line rate Ethernet traffic over Mellanox's 200GbE and 400GbE interconnects using Ixia's AresONE test system validates the low BER performance that exceeds the requirements of the 400GbE and 200GbE standards for these Mellanox products", stated Charles Seifert, Senior Manager, Product Management at Ixia Solutions Group, Keysight Technologies.
