Mellanox Doubles Silicon Photonics Ethernet Transceiver Speeds to 200Gb/s
Mellanox (News - Alert) Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLNX), a leading supplier of
high-performance, end-to-end smart interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, today introduced a new
line of 200Gb/s silicon photonics and VCSEL-based transceivers in the
same QSFP28 package as today's 100Gb/s products. These new transceivers
double the bandwidth for hyperscale Web 2.0 and cloud 100Gb/s networks.
Mellanox is also introducing 200Gb/s Active Optical Cables (AOCs) and
Direct Attach Copper Cables (DACs), including breakout cables, to allow
for end-to-end 200Gb/s Ethernet networks.
"Our hyperscale customers can double their bandwidth and scale to 200G
while using their existing installed fiber and without changing to a new
form factor," said Amir Prescher, senior vice president of business
development and general manager of the interconnect business, Mellanox
Technologies. "There is no need to wait for a new 400G form factor.
Using the same QSFP package as 100G, Mellanox's 200Gb/s products provide
better ROI and compelling cost advantages today."
Specifically, Mellanox is announcing the following products:
200Gb/s 1550nm DR4 QSFP28 silicon photonics transceiver for reaches of
500m on single mode fiber
200Gb/s SR4 VCSEL QSFP28 transceiver for reaches of 100m on OM4
200Gb/s QSFP28 Active Optical Cable for reaches to 100m
200Gb/s QSFP28 Direct Attach Copper (DAC) cable for reaches of 3m
200Gb/s QSFP28 to 4 x 50Gb/s SFP28 copper splitter cables to connect
50Gb/s servers to TOR switches
The next generation of switches and servers will run at 50G per lane
interfaces. These transceivers and DACs support the new IEEE (News - Alert) 200GAUI
electrical standard, using 25GBaud PAM4 signaling, literally doubling
the lane speed.
Mellanox will be exhibiting at the Optical Fiber Conference (OFC), March
21-23, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, CA (News - Alert), booth no.
3715. Mellanox will showcase live demonstrations of all its end-to-end
solutions in switching, network adapter and copper and optical cables
and transceivers, including:
Live 200Gb/s silicon photonics demonstration
Spectrum SN2700, SN2410 and SN2100 100Gb/s QSFP28/ SFP28 switches
ConnectX®-4 and ConnectX-5 25G/50G/100Gb/s QSFP28/SFP28
LinkX™ 25G/50G/100Gb/s DAC & AOC cables and 100G SR4 & PSM4
New Quantum (News - Alert) switches wth 40 ports of 200Gb/s QSFP28 in 1RUchassis
New ConnectX-6 adapters with two ports of 200Gb/s QSFP28
