Powered by the Mellanox Spectrum ASIC and packed with 8 ports running at 100GbE (can be split to 16 ports running 50GbE) and 48 ports running at 25GbE, the SN2410 carries a whopping throughput of 4Tb/s with a landmark 2.97Bpps processing capacity in a compact 1U form factor.
Lowest Latency For 100GbE Switching
Keeping with the Mellanox tradition of setting performance record switch systems, the SN2410 introduces the world’s lowest latency for a 100GbE switching and routing element, and does so while having the lowest power consumption in the market. The low latency is maintained while switching or routing between ports at different speeds, leveraging a smart cut-through architecture that performs on-the-fly optimized buffering and eliminating any dependency between ports. With the SN2410, the use of 25, 40, 50 and 100GbE in large scale is enabled without changing power infrastructure facilities.
The SN2410 is part of Mellanox’s complete end-to-end solution which provides 10GbE through 100GbE interconnectivity within the data center. Other devices in this solution include ConnectX®-4 based network interface cards and LinkX® copper or fiber cabling. This end-to-end solution is topped with Mellanox NEO®, a management application that relieves some of the major obstacles when deploying a network. NEO enables a fully certified and interoperable design, speeds up time to service and eventually speeds up ROI.
Superior Hardware Capabilities
The SN2410 introduces superior hardware capabilities including dynamic flexible shared buffers and predictable wire speed performance with no packet loss for any packet size. While Mellanox Spectrum provides the thrust and acceleration that powers the SN2410, the system gets yet another angle of capabilities while running with a powerful x86-based processor which allows this system to not only be the highest performing switch fabric element but also gives the ability to incorporate a Linux running server into the same device.
This opens up multiple application aspects of utilizing the high CPU processing power and the best switching fabric to create a powerful machine with unique appliance capabilities that can improve numerous network implementation paradigms. While the SN2410 Ethernet switch series is aimed for data centers which deploy 25GbE servers, Mellanox offers the SN2410B series for data centers with 10GbE servers. SN2410B switches are priced comfortably for the 10GbE servers market providing 100GbE uplinks which further save on cost and cabling along with the superior feature set of Mellanox Spectrum.
