Lanner today announced the release of the N2S-MHM203, a NIC module powered by Mellanox (now NVIDIA Networking) ConnectX®-6.
The introduction of the N2S-MHM203 is to fulfill the demand for zero-latency and zero-compromise network performance as such demand can not be fulfilled by software alone because latency elimination and packet rates optimization must also be handled by hardware implementations.
The N2S-MHM203‘s onboard ConnectX®-6 dual-port (QSFP28) adapter delivers 2x 100Gb/s connectivity, speedy packet rates and almost zero latency performance for optimizing load-balancing and for achieving real-time zero-latency, two of the most essential prerequisites for data centers that handle high data volume applications such as telecom, CORD and Cloud RAN.
According to Mellanox (now NVIDIA Networking), ConnectX-6 “supports sub-800 nanosecond latency, and 215 million messages per second, plus block-level encryption and NVMe over Fabric offloads, providing the highest performance and most flexible solution for the most demanding applications and markets.”
The N2S-MHM203‘s features can be summarized as below:
- Mellanox ConnectX-6
- Lanner N2S Standard
- 2x 100 GbE QSFP28 Ports
- 2x Gen4 PCIe x8
