SX6005 12-port Non-blocking Unmanaged 40Gb/s InfiniBand SDN Switch System

SX6005 switch system provides the highest performing fabric solution in a 1U half-width form factor by delivering up to 1.3Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth with 170ns port-to-port latency.

Scaling-Out Data Centers with Fourteen Data Rate (FDR) InfiniBand

Faster servers based on PCIe 3.0, combined with high-performance storage and applications that use increasingly complex computations, are causing data bandwidth requirements to spiral upward. As servers are deployed with next generation processors, embedded system environments and fast storage will need every last bit of bandwidth delivered with Mellanox’s next generation of FDR InfiniBand high-speed, low port density smart switches.


FDR InfiniBand technology moves from 8b/10b encoding to a more efficient 64/66 encoding while increasing the per lane signaling rate to 14Gb/s. Mellanox end-to-end systems can also take advantage of the efficiency of 64/66 encoding using Mellanox FDR-10 link speed supporting 20% more bandwidth over QDR using the same cables/connectors designed for 40 GbE.

Sustained Network Performance

Built with Mellanox’s 6th generation SwitchX®-2 InfiniBand switch device, the SX6005 provides up to twelve 56Gb/s full bi-directional bandwidth per port. The SX6005 is an ideal choice for smaller departmental or back-end clustering uses with high-performance needs, such as storage, data base and GPGPU clusters.

Smart Switches for Smart Clusters

The SX6005 has no Field Replaceable Units (FRUs), this simplifies the usage and maintenance of the switch. All connectors and cables including the power connector are on the same side of the switch making it unnecessary to require access to the non-connector side of the switch. A unique rail mounting kit allows two SX6005 switches to be mounted side-by-side in the same 1U space while allowing the switches to be serviced independently using less rack space for redundant switch configurations.

The SX6005 supports reversible airflow making the design fit into data centers with different thermal designs.

Building Efficient Clusters & Grids

The SX6005 is the industry’s most cost-effective building block for embedded systems and storage with the need for a low port density switch. Whether looking at price-to-performance or energy-to-performance, the SX6005 offers superior performance, power and space reducing capital and operating expenses, providing the best return-on-investment.
