Mellanox Provides Complete Portfolio of 40Gb/s Cable Interconnect Products

Superior Signal Integrity and Low Bit Error Rate Ensures the Highest Performance for 40Gb/s InfiniBand Connections

SUNNYVALE, CA. and YOKNEAM, ISRAEL – April 12, 2010 – Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX; TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end connectivity solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced the availability of its complete family of 40Gb/s InfiniBand cable solutions that complements its portfolio of InfiniBand adapter cards and switch systems. The cable product line provides cost effective connectivity with signal integrity and bit error rates (BER) that exceed industry standards, ensuring trouble-free cluster installation, bring-up and performance over the life of the network.

“Mellanox 40Gb/s cables enable a world-class out-of-the-box experience with our InfiniBand adapter cards and switch systems,” said Shai Rephaeli, vice president of interconnect products at Mellanox. “Mellanox’s 40Gb/s InfiniBand products deliver the highest throughput, lowest latency and highest message rate available to high performance computing, enterprise and cloud data center environments ensuring significant productivity benefits for enterprise and scientific computing users. Mellanox cables, with superior features, performance and reliability, eliminate bit errors that cause data corruption and the resulting application performance degradation.”

Mellanox 40Gb/s cables exceed the IBTA 1.2.1 and SFF-8436 QSFP connector standards and are 100 percent tested to strict quality requirements. Cables are available in a variety of options to suit the different power, length, and flexibility needs of the data center. Passive copper cables are available in lengths from half-meter to eight meters. These cables are preferred by IT managers for top-of-rack switch connections or small server cluster installations due to their low cost and use of no additional power. Low power active copper cables are available from eight meters up to 12 meters. These cables, using less than 500mW per end, extend the distance between servers and switches to build data centers consisting of thousands of servers. The eight meter active cable is slimmer and lighter than the passive version reducing the weight that the cable management needs to support. Assembled optical cables with the industry’s lowest power of less than one Watt per end are available up to 300 meters providing very lightweight and flexible connectivity between servers and switches and extends the reach to across the room or between floors.
