Mellanox Expands LinkXTM Family of Cables to Add Flexibility to Data Center Connectivity

July 21, 2014

New LinkX copper cables with innovative color scheme simplifies data center installations and management

SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced the general availability of Direct Attach Cables (DACs) with colored jackets and colored pull tabs, supporting interconnect speeds of 10, 40 and 56Gb/s for both Ethernet and InfiniBand data center networks. The new colored version reduces the chance of error in connecting server, switch and routing ports, shortens cluster installation time, and simplifies interconnect debugging and network management.

“The new colored cables can ease data center management and provide the ability to easily distinguish between different types of data traffic, applications or equipment, making data center deployments and maintenance more simple,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “The new cables are additions to our comprehensive portfolio of 10, 40, and 56Gb/s copper and fiber cables, serving both Ethernet and InfiniBand infrastructures.”

To ensure that every LinkX cable or transceiver works the first time and every time, Mellanox subjects its products to a full system test in a stressed environment. Network engineers save time by eliminating the tedious debugging time needed for new installations with untested products. With LinkX products, installation experts can bring up new clusters quickly, without worrying about interconnect problems or failures.

All LinkX interconnect products endure full system testing to Bit Error Rate (BER) 10-15 in order to maximize overall data center performance. BER 10-15 provides 1,000X fewer transmission errors than many competing products. Fewer transmission errors translate to higher system performance and more revenue generating traffic.

Whether the application is Ethernet or InfiniBand, cloud or Web 2.0, server to top-of-rack, server to storage or switch to switch, LinkX interconnect products maximize ROI with superior performance, flexibility and scalability.
