Introducing The New LinkX Mini-Website!


Mellanox’s LinkX® team  has completely remodeled the cables, transceivers and IC Interconnect portion of the Mellanox website. We’ve simplified 175 different individual product Sku’s into an easy-to-read and quick-to-find selection guide – complete with updated pictures and other content.  It is much simpler and easier to navigate and only 3-4 clicks, start to finish, and you are at the product brief PDF downloads.

It is a very intuitive interface:

1) Select product protocol (Ethernet, InfiniBand)

2) Select product type (DAC, AOCs, Transceivers)

3) Select line rate, reach, form factor, PDFs etc. and includes the part number.

Unlike other websites that show cryptic or very limited information, we designed our site to provide just the right amount of information you need to make a buying decision and get the information you need to make a buying decision to meet your needs.  Also, there is a menu link to actually buy online and have it delivered to your door.
