InfiniBand/VPI Switch Silicon Overview

Mellanox's performance leading switch silicon ICs enable OEMs to build the highest performing server and storage system interconnect solution for Enterprise Data Centers, Web 2.0, Cloud Computing, High-Performance Computing, and embedded environments. With reduced power, footprint and fully integrated PHY capabilities, Mellanox's switch silicon ICs provide network architects critical feature-sets to enable fabric-flexible server and storage systems to meet the increasing performance demands of their customers.


SwitchX®-2 Virtual Protocol Interconnect® Optimized for SDN

SwitchX®-2, the sixth generation switching IC from Mellanox, further improves the company's tradition of leading bandwidth, low-latency, and scalability by integrating Virtual Protocol Interconnect® (VPI) technology - allowing InfiniBand, Ethernet and Fibre Channel traffic to exist on a single 'one-wire' fabric. The industry-leading integration of 144 SerDes which are flexible enough to run 1 Gigabit to 14 Gigabit speeds per lane, independent of network protocol, makes SwitchX-2 an obvious choice for OEMs that must address end-user requirements for faster and more robust applications.
