InfiniBand; For 40G, 56G, 100G and 120G

A Brief Overview of InfiniBand

InfiniBand™ has grown its market share over the past few years and is now the I/O fabric interconnect of choice for many organisations deploying virtualised or HPC platforms.

Primarily used to co-ordinate server and processing resources, InfiniBand™ greatly increases the efficiency of storage area networks and servers. The lane speeds for InfiniBand™ connectivity continue to increase at a pace in order to keep up with the demands for enhanced and robust performance whilst being able to process complex application data quickly and without error.


Transmission Over Both Copper and Fibre

M400 MTP 12 Fibre Trunk Cable

InfiniBand™ architectures can support both active and passive copper cables (up to 30 meters) as well as a wide range of optical cables (up to 10 km).

Complete Connect InfiniBand® cables provide connectivity for 1x, 4x and 12x speeds covering all data rates; SDR, DDR, QDR, FDR and EDR

Parallel Optics With the QSFP+ Transceiver

The most common optical cable connector is the QSFP+ (SFF-08436). This is used primarily for 4x speeds at QDR or FDR data rates and gives a combined aggregate bandwidth of 40Gb/s (QDR) or 56Gb/s (FDR).

The QSFP+ interface from major manufacturers use the MT ferrule. This 12 fibre ferrule is the same ferrule used in the MTP connector by US Conec and is the same ferrule used across Complete Connect’s M Series.

Fibre Optic InfiniBand Connectivity

Complete Connect fibre InfiniBand™ solutions are available for deployment where shorter reach copper solutions are not viable.
Fibre InfiniBand™ cables can offer significant deployment advantages over copper cables such as a significantly extended link lengths a smaller diameter and tighter bend radius and more flexible routing options in tighter infrastructure spaces.
