Mellanox has become one of the leaders in Infiniband solutions. GigaTech supports a full line of Mellanox compatible DAC and AOC solutions including 40, 56, 100, and 200Gb/s port speeds. GigaTech standard and custom length cables fit the unique needs of any installation. We can offer unique connections to other manufacturers’ hardware through our “dual coding” capabilities. Our Mellanox compatible InfiniBand solutions offer a new level of price, performance, and flexibility and are backed by an industry leading lifetime warranty.

What is InfiniBand™

InfiniBand (IB) is a computer networking communications standard used in high-performance, multi-purpose network architecture.  The InfiniBand protocol is based on switched fabric computing that features very high throughput and very low latency and has become a leading standard in high-performance computing. Over 200 of the world’s fastest 500 supercomputers use InfiniBand. InfiniBand leverages switched, point-to-point channels with data transfers that generally lead the industry, both in chassis backplane applications as well as through external copper and optical fiber connections. The low-latency, high-bandwidth interconnect requires only minimal processing overhead and is ideal to carry multiple traffic types (clustering, communications, storage, management) over a single connection.

Features and Advantages

Superior performance

Superior performance: Most of the world’s fastest commercially available supercomputers leverage the InfiniBand interconnect.


InfiniBand’s ultra-low latencies, with measured delays of 1µs end to end, greatly accelerate many data center and high performance computing (HPC) applications.


InfiniBand provides direct support of advanced reliable transport protocols such as Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) to enhance the efficiency of customer workload processing.

Cost effectiveness

InfiniBand Host Channel Adapters and switches are very competitively priced and create a compelling price/performance advantage over alternative technologies.

Fabric consolidation and low energy usage

InfiniBand consolidates networking, clustering, and storage data over a single fabric lowering the overall power, real estate and management overhead.

Reliable, stable connections

InfiniBand meets the mission-critical needs of today’s enterprise by enabling fully redundant and lossless I/O fabrics, with automatic path failover and link layer multi-pathing abilities to meet the highest levels of availability.

Never Sourced. Never Recycled.

All components in GigaTech Product optics are manufactured under the same roof and represent the gold standard for reliability and consistency in performance. This vertical manufacture chain allows GigaTech to avoid unnecessary variances in transceiver casing or laser quality often found with online resellers who source their components from an ever changing vendor list. The transceiver is guaranteed to be built from A-Stock never used components overseen by GigaTech Products,

Rigorous Testing & Standards Compliance

The quality and standards of our hardware is one the base foundations of GigaTech Products. All of our components comply with MSA (Multi-Source Agreement) output standards and, in many cases, excel beyond those certification standards. Every transceiver we produce is tested on active network devices to ensure they comply with OEM equipment and are verified to be plug-and-play and do not require work arounds.
