Mellanox Copper and Optical Cables
Supporting data rates up to 56Gb/s
Mellanox cables are a cost-effective solution for connecting high bandwidth fabrics, extending the benefits of Mellanox’s high-performance InfiniBand and 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet adapters throughout the network. In addition to meeting or exceeding IBTA and IEEE standards, Mellanox Certified cables are 100% tested on Mellanox equipment to ensure optimal signal integrity and the best end-to-end performance. With Mellanox cables you will experience trouble-free installation and long-term operation.
Hybrid Copper Cables
Hybrid cables connect network equipment with different connector types. These cables can connect InfiniBand switch or HCA ports with the original microGiGaCN connector to equipment with the newer QSFP connector. Hybrid cables also enable Mellanox’s VPI adapters and 40 Gigabit Ethernet NIC to connect to 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches with either CX4 or SFP+ ports.
Mellanox cables are available with a wide range of connector types, complying with the different protocols in the market. CX4, QSFP or SFP+ cable solutions provide highest flexibility for network installations. Hybrid cables allow you to make connections when the adapter card port doesn’t match the switch port. For example, hybrid cables can connect between DDR adapters with CX4 connectors to high density switches with QSFP connectors. With a QSFP to SFP+ cable, you can connect a VPI adapter card to a 10GbE switch.
