Mellanox Quantum™

Quantum is the world’s smartest network switch silicon, designed to enable in-network computing through the Co-Design Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol (SHARP) technology. The Co-Design architecture enables the usage of all active data center devices to accelerate the communications frameworks, resulting in order of magnitude applications performance improvements.

Quantum offers industry-leading integration of 160 SerDes, with rich speed flexibility ranging from 2.5Gb/s to 50Gb/s per lane, making this Mellanox switch an obvious choice for OEMs that must address end-user requirements for faster and more robust applications. Quantum leverages Mellanox’s innovative solution called SHIELD™ (Self-Healing Interconnect Enhancement for Intelligent Datacenters) to overcome link failure, enabling network recovery 5000x faster than any other software-based solution.

Network architects can utilize Quantum's reduced power and footprint, and a fully integrated PHY capable of connectivity across PCBs, backplanes, and passive and active copper/fiber cables, to deploy leading, fabric flexible computing and storage systems with the lowest total cost of ownership.
