Mellanox has introduced a new ebook that describes the latest developments in Direct Attach Copper (DAC) cables, Active Optical Cables (AOCs) and both multi-mode and single-mode optical transceivers for use in modern high-speed data centers. With 33 pages of descriptive text and diagrams, this ebook is a must-read for anyone involved in high-speed networking.
The new Mellanox ebook tries to simplify all the various buzz-words and acronyms and boil it all down to simple-to-understand concepts. It is designed as a quick-read, is blessedly equation free and includes a variety of artwork and photos to make complex issues more understandable and visually interesting.
With a focus on the latest 25Gb/s line rates, the ebook examines the latest copper and optical interconnect technologies for linking top-of-rack, leaf, and spine switches to servers, storage and network appliances using network adapters. These system design techniques have been recently adopted by many hyperscale data center builders and the techniques they are using are rippling throughout the data center industry, migrating to small and large enterprise data centers, and even new telecom data centers as they represent the most cost-effective high-speed interconnect solutions available.
The ebook focuses on the SFP28 and QSFP28 form-factors and interconnect reaches from 0.5 meters to 10 km in both copper and optics which covers the majority of data center links.
