TX6240 - RDMA Long-Haul Solutions for the Metro

Overview

The MetroX™ TX6240 series extends Mellanox's InfiniBand and Ethernet RDMA solutions metro applications. The TX6240 supports 2 long-haul ports running 40Gb/s to a distance up to 40km.

While Mellanox products have been traditionally deployed for their high-performance interconnect benefits within the data center, Mellanox's MetroX solutions, implementing long-haul RDMA, enable connections between data centers deployed across multiple geographically distributed sites, extending the same world-leading interconnect benefits of Mellanox switches beyond local data centers and storage clusters.

Mellanox's MetroX is the perfect cost-effective, low power, easily managed and scalable solution that enables today’s data centers and storage to run up to 40km over local and distributed fabrics, managed as a single unified network infrastructure.
