Eye On Mellanox: Spectrum Ethernet Switches

Mellanox Spectrum® SN4000 Ethernet Switch Series

The SN4000 Ethernet switches combine industry-leading 400GbE density with rich features for the modern data center. Powered by Spectrum®-3 ASIC, the SN4000 series carries a whopping bidirectional switching capacity of up to 25,6Tb/s. The SN4000 platform complements the SN3000 platforms as high-density 400/100GbE spine switches. Alternatively, the SN4000 can also function as a high-density leaf switch for dense interconnected high performance clusters or classic end of the row data center designs.

Mellanox Spectrum® SN3000 Ethernet Switch Series

The SN3000 Ethernet switches are ideal for leaf and spine data center network solutions, allowing maximum flexibility, with port speeds spanning from 1GbE to 400GbE per port and port density that enables full rack connectivity to any server at any speed. Powered by the 50G PAM-4 based Spectrum®-2 ASIC, the SN3000 series carries a whopping bidirectional switching capacity of up to 12,8Tb/s with a landmark 8,33Bpps packet processing rate.

Mellanox Spectrum® SN2000 Ethernet Switch Series

Powered by Mellanox Spectrum switch silicon, the SN2000 Open Ethernet switches combine enterprise-class performance with entry-level economics. With industry-leading performance, scale and features, SN2000 Ethernet switches are ideal to build small, medium and large Layer-2/Layer-3 and virtualized data center networks. SN2000 switches feature a fully-shared packet buffer architecture that provides a robust high-bandwidth data path for Ethernet Storage Fabric and other hardware-accelerated RoCE based applications such as NVMe-OF and Deep Learning. Additionally, SN2000 switches support comprehensive network virtualization capabilities with its FlexFlow packet processing pipeline.
