Mellanox Open Ethernet Switches

Building Innovation into Cost-effective Predictable Data Centers

Flexibility, Speed and The World of Open Ethernet!

From SwitchX®-2 to Spectrum, Mellanox family of Open Ethernet switches provides the most efficient network solution for the ever-increasing performance demands of Data Center applications. Mellanox provides the highest performing Open Ethernet switch systems at speeds of 10/25/40/50/56/100Gb/s, enabling Data Centers, Cloud Computing, Storage, Web2.0 and High Performance Computing applications to operate at maximum functionality at any scale.

In addition to running with the home grown MLNX-OS software, Mellanox Spectrum based devices are introducing the Linux experience with running Cumulus-Linux operating system. A revolutionary approach to switch operating systems using native Linux tools within a switch operating system and a rich set of L3 features to provide a wide range of data center applications to enjoy the Spectrum advantage.

The Open Ethernet family includes a broad portfolio of 1RU-sized switches, ranging from 12 ports to 64 ports and with speeds from 1Gb/s to 100Gb/s, allowing the construction of purpose-built data centers at any scale with any desired blocking ratio.

SN2010 - Half width 18-port 10GbE + 4-port 100GbE Open Ethernet ToR Switch System

Height 40/56/100GbE Ports 10/25GbE Ports 50GbE Ports Switching Capacity
1U (half-width) 4 18 8 1.7Tb/s

The SN2010 switch is the ideal top of rack (ToR) solution for small hyperconverged and storage deployments. Packed with 18 ports of 10/25GbE and 4 splittable ports of 40/100GbE, the SN2010 can deliver up to 580Gb/s aggregate throughput in a non-blocking environment.


SX1012 - High density, side-by-side, ideal storage/database switch

Height 40/56GbE Ports 10GbE Ports Switching Capacity
1U (half-width) 12 48 1.34Tb/s

The SX1012 switch system provides the highest-performing top-of-rack (ToR) solution in a half-width 1U form factor by delivering up to 1.3Tb/s of non-blocking throughput with 10GbE or 40/56GbE form factor. The SX1012 is the ideal top-of-rack (ToR) switch for small pods connecting a small number of servers with 40GbE. Based on Mellanox’s SwitchX®-2 silicon and advanced hardware design, each QSFP port can be used with a passive breakout cable to create four discrete SFP+ interfaces to be used as 10GbE ports, for a total of 48-ports on the smallest form factor 10GbE ToR in the industry.
