Product Review

The Mellanox Technologies MSX6002TBR switch stands out for its high-performance capabilities, offering an aggregate switching capacity of 72.52 Tb/s and supporting up to 648 FDR (56Gb/s) ports within its 29U modular chassis, making it suitable for high-density networking environments. However, the switching latency ranges from 165ns to 495ns, which might affect performance in scenarios requiring ultra-low latency. Additionally, the switch provides flexibility with its power supply options, supporting both 1KW and 1.6KW hot-swappable units for redundancy, but its power requirements and operational temperature range necessitate careful consideration in planning for data center environmental controls.


The Mellanox Technologies MSX6002TBR is a high-capacity networking switch designed to meet the demands of intensive data and storage environments. This switch offers a comprehensive solution for data centers requiring high bandwidth and low latency connectivity. It supports 36 ports of FDR10/QDR VPI, making it versatile for a wide array of network configurations. The MSX6002TBR is capable of scaling up to 648 FDR (56Gb/s) ports in a single 29U switch configuration, providing an impressive aggregate switching capacity of 72.52 Tb/s. This capability ensures that data flows efficiently through the network, reducing bottlenecks and improving overall system performance. Switching latency on the MSX6002TBR ranges from 165ns to 495ns, ensuring rapid data transfer and processing within the network. This feature is particularly beneficial for applications requiring real-time processing and high-speed data transmission. The switch also offers an N+N power supply option, enhancing its reliability and uptime by providing redundant power supplies to safeguard against hardware failures. The MSX6002TBR is housed in a 29U modular chassis, making it a scalable solution that can grow with your network needs. It complies with IBTA 1.21 and 1.3 standards, ensuring interoperability and consistent performance across InfiniBand networks. Network administrators can create up to 8 switch partitions, allowing for efficient allocation of resources and improved network management. The switch supports a Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) range from 256 to 4Kbyte, accommodating various data sizes for optimized transmission. Key features of the MSX6002TBR include Adaptive Routing, Congestion Control, and Port Mirroring. Adaptive Routing automatically adjusts the data paths within the network to ensure efficient data flow, while Congestion Control prevents network bottlenecks by managing data traffic effectively. Port Mirroring enables network monitoring and troubleshooting by allowing the mirroring of traffic to another port for analysis. - QSFP+ connectors on the MSX6002TBR comply with SFF-8436 and INF8438i, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of network cables and devices. - The switch offers two power supply options: 1KW hot-swappable units with N+2 slots for redundancy and 1.6KW hot-swappable units with N+N slots for redundancy (at 220VAC only), providing flexibility and reliability in power management. - Hot-swappable fan trays, auto-heat sensing fans, and an operating temperature range from 0ºC to 45ºC, coupled with a humidity tolerance of 10-90% non-condensing, ensure the switch operates efficiently under various environmental conditions. The power supplies support an input range of 90-264VAC and operate on a 47-63Hz frequency, accommodating a wide range of power sources and ensuring the switch remains operational in diverse settings. The inclusion of hot-swappable components, such as power supplies and fan trays, allows for easy maintenance and upgrades without disrupting network operations. This design consideration ensures that the MSX6002TBR can maintain continuous operation, a critical requirement for mission-critical data center environments.
