Product Review

The Mellanox MSX6036F-2SRS offers a high-capacity, 36-port QSFP FDR InfiniBand switch with a switching capacity of 4Tb/s, ensuring efficient handling of data traffic with minimal latency of 200ns. However, the system's power consumption, which varies significantly between passive (126W) and active (231W) cables, could be a concern for energy-conscious deployments. Additionally, the switch's support for optional redundant power supplies and fan units enhances its reliability for critical network environments, though it adds to the overall cost and complexity of the setup.


The Mellanox MSX6036F-2SRS is a high-performance, 1U managed InfiniBand switch system, leveraging the advanced capabilities of the SwitchX®-2 chipset. It offers 36 QSFP ports capable of non-blocking throughput up to 4.032Tb/s, optimized for fast data transfer and efficient network management in enterprise data centers and high-performance computing environments. At the core of the MSX6036F-2SRS is its non-blocking switching capacity of 4Tb/s, ensuring data flows rapidly and efficiently through the network without bottlenecks. This switch is designed to facilitate rapid data exchange, featuring a port-to-port latency of just 200ns, making it an ideal solution for applications requiring high-speed data transmission. This switch is equipped with dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports and an RS232 port over DB9, providing versatile connectivity options for management and configuration. The system's dimensions are 1.72’’H x 16.84’’W x 24.7’’D, and it weighs 20.5lb (9.3kg), making it compact and easy to integrate into existing 19’’ rack environments. It supports a standard depth and conforms to C2P airflow direction for cooling efficiency. Key hardware specifications include: -
  • 36 QSFP non-blocking ports with FDR support
  • Dual power supplies for redundancy
  • Hot-swappable fan unit with auto-heat sensing
The switch is designed to be power efficient, with typical power consumption varying by cable type: 126W for passive and 231W for active cables. It operates within a broad power input range of 100-240VAC and is designed to function reliably within a wide temperature range, from 0ºC to 40ºC during operation, and from -40ºC to 70ºC when not in operation. For enhanced network management and prioritization, the MSX6036F-2SRS supports 9 virtual lanes: 8 for data and 1 for management. This feature enables the segregation and prioritization of data traffic, ensuring critical data is processed with minimal delay. The switch is compliant with IBTA 1.2.1 and 1.3 standards, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of InfiniBand hardware and software solutions. For environments requiring high availability, optional redundant power supplies and fan drawers can be added, enhancing the system's reliability and uptime. In summary, the Mellanox MSX6036F-2SRS combines high-speed data transfer capabilities with efficient cooling and power management features, making it a robust solution for demanding network environments. Its support for high data throughput, low latency, and redundancy options ensures that it can meet the needs of the most performance-sensitive applications, providing a scalable and reliable networking foundation.
