LinkX Ethernet Splitter and Adapter Cables

Mellanox LinkX Splitter and Adapter cables make it easy to connect 10, 25, and 50Gb/s servers/storage and appliances using network adapters to 40G & 100G Top-Of-Rack (TOR) switches. Passive DAC copper cables consume zero power and offers the lowest signal latency. Mellanox offers a wide range of products to support reaches from 0.5m to 7m for every application need.

In addition to meeting or exceeding IEEE standards, LinkX certified products are 100% tested in actual Mellanox systems to ensure optimal signal integrity and the best end-to-end performance. IEEE standards require 1E-12 Bit Error Ratio (BER), but all Mellanox cables are tested to 1E-15 which is 1,000X fewer bit errors than competitors. Mellanox splitters and adapters, offer trouble free installation, long-term reliable operation and they work with 3rd-party switches and adapters.
