Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of
high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers
and storage systems, today announced the general availability of Direct Attach
Cables (DACs) with colored jackets and colored pull tabs, supporting
interconnect speeds of 10, 40 and 56Gb/s for both Ethernet and InfiniBand data
center networks. The new colored version reduces the chance of error in
connecting server, switch and routing ports, shortens cluster installation
time, and simplifies interconnect debugging and network management.

“The new colored cables can ease data center management and provide the
ability to easily distinguish between different types of data traffic,
applications or equipment, making data center deployments and maintenance more
simple,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox
Technologies. “The new cables are additions to our comprehensive portfolio of
10, 40, and 56Gb/s copper and fiber cables, serving both Ethernet and
InfiniBand infrastructures.”

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. Network engineers save time by eliminating the tedious debugging
time needed for new installations with untested products. With LinkX products,
installation experts can bring up new clusters quickly, without worrying about
interconnect problems or failures.

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

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 interconnect
products maximize ROI with superior performance, flexibility and scalability.
