Switch-IB™ 2

Switch-IB 2 is the world’s first smart network switch 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.

Switch-IB 2 offers industry-leading integration of 144 SerDes, with rich speed flexibility ranging from 1 to 25 Gb/s per lane, making this Mellanox switch an obvious choice for OEMs that must address end-user requirements for faster and more robust applications. Network architects can utilize Switch-IB 2’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, fabricflexible computing and storage systems with the lowest total cost of ownership.
