Mellanox switch | How is the Competitor and Alternative to Cisco, Juniper, Dell and Huawei Switches?

Premier Mellanox Selections: best-selling Mellanox Switches, Network Cards, and Cables

A fabless semiconductor manufacturer, as one of the biggest competitors and alternatives of Cisco, Juniper, Dell and Huawei, Mellanox offers goods based on semiconductor integrated circuits, sometimes known as “chips.” Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. has been producing its chips at least since 2011 (TSMC). Based on internally created integrated circuits, Mellanox Technologies offers Ethernet and InfiniBand network adapters, switches, and cables for servers and storage used in cloud and business data centers.

When high data rates and low latency are necessary, like in a computer cluster, Mellanox specializes in switched fabrics for business data centers and high-performance computing. A large database management system was one example application. RDMA over Converged Ethernet and remote direct memory access (RDMA) are supported by Mellanox network adapters and switches.

Product names include:

Virtual protocol connection is supported by the ConnectX product series of multi-protocol ASICs and adapters, offering support for Ethernet and InfiniBand traffic at rates up to 200Gbit/s. A few of the improved features of the ConnectX-6 and ConnectX-6 Dx adapters are high speed (up to 200Gb/s), OVS acceleration, Multi-Host compatibility, and inline crypto acceleration.

It has been said that the ConnectX architecture is “innovative,” offers good performance, and is “extremely well suited for current multi-core systems.” A maximum of 40 ports operating at 200 Gbit/s HDR are supported by the Quantum range of InfiniBand switches. The Quantum switches feature cutting-edge HPC offloads like SHARP (collective operation acceleration) and SHIELD (self-healing) technologies and provide unmatched latency and packet forwarding performance.

Ethernet switch products from the Spectrum product family.

The series of cables and transceivers is known as LinkX. These devices come in a variety of form factors and are available for both Ethernet and InfiniBand protocols.
