Another first in the Open Ethernet space, the Mellanox SN2410B switch with Cumulus Linux allows customers with 10GbE attached servers to benefit from high capacity 100GbE inter-switch connectivity. By providing 2.5 times the bandwidth per uplink compared to traditional 10/40GbE switches, the SN2410B reduces cable complexity and facilitates significant cost savings by requiring 2.5 times fewer cables, transceivers, and aggregation (spine) switch ports. This high-speed switch is extremely affordable, with an MSRP that is half the cost of other 10/100 Gigabit Ethernet switch offerings.The Ethernet switch product portfolio, with the Mellanox Spectrum ASIC, are the only ultra-low latency switches that offer 10, 25, 50, or 100GbE speeds. The Cumulus Linux 3.1 release includes several new data center networking features, including Layer 3 multicast and congestion notification, that will convey ultra-low latency 25 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet into markets previously unserved by this class of high-performance switches. These features offer significant improvements for the media and entertainment industry where 4K and 8K video feeds are fast becoming the norm. This is also important for networks within the financial community who have the most to gain by leveraging the lowest latency in the market. Mellanox switches supported by Cumulus Linux 3.1 include the 100GbE SN2100 and SN2700; 40GbE SN2100B and SN2700B; 25G/100GbE SN2410 and 10G/ 100GbE SN2410B switches - all of which deliver full line rate zero packet loss solutions.
