World-Class Ethernet Performance

ConnectX Ethernet SmartNICs offer best-in-class network performance, serving low-latency, high-throughput applications with one, two, or four ports at 10, 25, 40, 50, 100, 200, and up to 400 gigabits per second (Gb/s) Ethernet speeds.

  • Powered by NVIDIA ASAP2—Accelerated Switch and Packet Processing® technology, ConnectX SmartNICs accelerate network performance while reducing the CPU overhead of Internet Protocol (IP) packet transport, freeing more processor cycles to run applications.
  • With unmatched RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) performance, ConnectX SmartNICs deliver efficient, high-performance remote direct-memory access (RDMA) services to bandwidth- and latency-sensitive applications.
  • ConnectX SmartNICs offload and accelerate encryption/decryption a speedst up to 400Gb/s.
  • With industry-leading Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) performance, they deliver more throughput, with less CPU cycles.
  • They enable secure boot of the operating system with in-hardware root of trust.
  • ConnectX SmartNICS are certified in all major operating systems as well as top virtualization, and containerization platforms

Flexible Deployment

With the NVIDIA ethernet switching solution, you can purchase hardware from a variety of vendors, including HPE, Lenovo, Penguin, or direct. The NVIDIA Spectrum Ethernet Switch product family is a broad portfolio of top-of-rack and aggregation switches. Deploy in your layer-2 and layer-3 cloud designs, in overlay-based virtualized networks, or as part of high-performance, mission-critical ethernet storage fabrics. In any deployment, you’ll get:

  • Industry-leading performance and predictability
  • Comprehensive visibility
  • High-performance remote direct-memory access over converged ethernet (RoCE)
  • Advanced virtualization

End-to-End Open Networking

Open networking is about offering choice and flexibility while removing restrictions, and that means being open at all tiers of the stack. NVIDIA is the leader in end-to-end open networking at all layers of software and hardware.

  • Nearly all NVIDIA networking features, from adapters to switches to data processing units (DPU’s), can be accessed and managed with open interfaces. In fact, NVIDIA is a top contributor to projects such as SONiC, the Data Plane Developers Kit (DPDK), and Free Range Routing (FRR).
  • The Spectrum programmable ASIC enables flexibility to handle evolving networking technologies, including new protocols that may be developed in the future.
  • Spectrum’s Open SDK API enables the Ethernet community to build open-source networking applications and protocols faster and can be a base for a standard Ethernet switch interface, since NVIDIA doesn’t restrict usage or programming of the ASIC.

Ethernet Cables And Transceivers

10/25/40/50/100/200G and 400G
The NVIDIA® Networking LinkX® product family of cables and transceivers provides the industry’s most complete line of 10, 25, 40, 50, 100, 200, and 400GbE in Ethernet and EDR, HDR, and NDR in InfiniBand products for Cloud, HPC, Web 2.0, Enterprise, telco, storage and artificial intelligence, data center applications.

LinkX cables and transceivers are often used to link top-of-rack switches downwards to network adapters in NVIDIA GPUs and CPU servers, and storage and/or upwards in switch-to-switch applications throughout the network infrastructure.
