Mellanox and ProLabs Collaborate to Shake up Data Centre Establishment

CIRENCESTER, England, August 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Mellanox Technologies, a leading supplier of end-to-end InfiniBand and Ethernet interconnect solutions, and ProLabs, the leading independent provider of global optical network infrastructure products, jointly announced  that ProLabs has been appointed to supply Mellanox's comprehensive LinkX™ product portfolio of 10/40/56Gb/s InfiniBand and Ethernet QSFP+ and SFP+ cables and modules in the EMEA  region and the United States.

"It's a very significant strategic opportunity for both firms," said ProLabs CEO Nick Moglia.  "Mellanox is synonymous with highly advanced and innovative interconnect technology and ProLabs have established themselves as one of the leading innovators in providing reliable, cost-effective components in the network product space. Together we believe we develop high-quality technology, which is reliable, robust and cost-effective."

"We are pleased to collaborate with ProLabs to deliver our combined high-speed interconnect solution in the EMEA market," said Darrin Chen, vice president of worldwide channel sales at Mellanox Technologies. "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 cables and modules maximize ROI with superior performance, flexibility and scalability."

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. All LinkX interconnect products endure full system testing to Bit Error Rate (BER) 10-15 in order to maximize overall data centre 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.

Product Advantages: 

Mellanox/ ProLabs aim to provide clear advantages with the following:

  • A low bit error rate (BER) better than 10-[15]
  • 100 percent production tested cables
  • Expanded range of cables and transceivers up to 56Gb/s products (a 40 percent improvement over more orthodox 40Gb/s solutions)
  • Direct Attach Cables (DACs) with colored jackets and colored pull tabs to reduce the chance of error in connecting server, switch and routing ports, shortens cluster installation time, and simplifies interconnect debugging and network management.

Further details of the ProLabs and Mellanox agreement will be communicated at the 2014 ECOC Exhibition in September.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications?
