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 SX1000-series of high-density 10 and 40GbE switches. Based on the company’s recently announced, performance-leading SwitchX™ switch silicon ICs, the SX-1000 series delivers up to 2.88Tb/s of switching in a single 1U device. The SX-1000 leverages Mellanox’s unique IC architecture to deliver industry-leading capabilities in bandwidth performance, density, scalability, latency (230ns) and power. SX-1000 switches combined with additional peripherals, such as cables and Quad-to-Serial Adapters (QSA), allow for configurations as either 10GbE or 40GbE connections. The flexibility of server and uplink connectivity options provide improved efficiency, future proofing, and savings versus alternative 10GbE solutions.
When using the SX-1000 family of switches in a 1,000-node configuration, data center operators can save up to 84 percent of the power, reduce rack space by 50 percent and consolidate up to 75 percent of inter-rack cables. The higher speed 40GbE backbone overcomes common bottlenecks and network congestion caused by east/west traffic and storage, and provides up to 10x lower latencies, thus ensuring faster application performance.SX-1000 Product Details The SX1035 and SX1036 of 40GbE 1U switches deliver industry-leading latency performance (230us at 40GbE and 250us at 10GbE) with ultra-low power (6.5W per 40GbE port and 3.6W per 10GbE port) and offer flexible configurations such as:
- 36-port 40GbE
- 64-port 10GbE – using QSFP to four SFP+ breakout cables
- 56 10GbE and eight 40GbE – using QSFP to four SFP+ breakout cables
- 48 10GbE and 12 40GbE – using QSFP to four SFP+ breakout cables
The risks and uncertainties that could cause our results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements include, the continued growth rate of the 10 and 40 Gigabit Data Center Ethernet Switch market from 2010 to 2015, the continued expansion of end-user applications for our InfiniBand, 10 and 40 Gigabit data center Ethernet switch products, our customer base and the total available market of our products, the continued growth in demand for our products, the continued, increased demand for industry standards-based technology, our ability to react to trends and challenges in our business and the markets in which we operate, our ability to anticipate market needs or develop new or enhanced products to meet those needs, the adoption rate of our products, our ability to establish and maintain successful relationships with our OEM partners, our ability to effectively compete in our industry, fluctuations in demand, sales cycles and prices for our products and services, our success converting design wins to revenue-generating product shipments, and our ability to protect our intellectual property rights.In addition, current uncertainty in the global economic environment poses a risk to the overall economy as businesses may defer purchases in response to tighter credit conditions, changing overall demand for our products, and negative financial news.
