Product Review

The Mellanox Technologies SN2700 switch offers a flexible range of Ethernet speeds, including 10/25/40/50/56/100GbE, catering to diverse network demands and facilitating high throughput at 6.4Tb/s and 4.76 billion packets per second. It supports advanced networking features such as Multi Chassis LAG (MLAG), comprehensive VLAN, spanning tree protocols, and both IPv4 & IPv6 routing, making it suitable for complex network architectures. However, its power consumption at 150W with passive cables and a weight of 11.1kg may be considered high for some deployments, necessitating careful consideration of power efficiency and rack space.


The Mellanox Technologies SN2700 switch presents a high-performance networking solution, catering to a wide range of data speeds and connectivity requirements. This switch is designed to support configurations of 10, 25, 40, 50, 56, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), providing flexible options for network architects. The hardware is optimized for high throughput, with a capacity of 6.4 Terabits per second (Tb/s) and processing up to 4.76 billion packets per second (Bpps), ensuring efficient data flow across networks. Key features of the SN2700 include support for Multi Chassis LAG (MLAG), enhancing network resilience and bandwidth through link aggregation across multiple switches. The switch supports Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) Versions 2 and 3, with snooping and querier capabilities, facilitating efficient multicast traffic management. For network segmentation and security, the SN2700 offers VLAN 802.1Q with up to 4,000 VLAN IDs, and Q-in-Q tunneling, allowing for layer 2 domain isolation. The SN2700 is equipped with advanced routing features including support for both IPv4 and IPv6, with 64 Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) instances for multi-tenancy environments. Routing protocols such as Border Gateway Protocol (BGP4) and Open Shortest Path First version 2 (OSPFv2) are supported, alongside route maps for customized routing policies. It also provides DHCP relay for both versions 4 and 6, facilitating dynamic IP address allocation across networks. Redundancy and network stability are addressed through features like 802.1W Rapid Spanning Tree, Loop Guard, and BPDU Guard, preventing network loops and ensuring reliable connectivity. The switch also supports Jumbo Frames up to 9216 bytes, enabling efficient large data packet transmission. From a hardware perspective, the Mellanox SN2700 offers a typical power consumption of 150W with passive cables, according to ATIS standards. It operates within a power input range of 100-127 VAC and 200-240VAC, at a frequency of 50-60Hz. The single-phase AC power requires 4.5A at 100-127VAC and 2.9A at 200-240VAC. The physical dimensions of the switch are 1.72 inches in height, 16.84 inches in width, and 27 inches in depth, with a weight of 11.1kg (24.5lb), making it suitable for standard rack mounting.
