MSN2100-CB2F Product Information

Nvidia Mellanox MSN2100-CB2F: High-density and Lowest Latency Compact 16-Port Non-blocking 100GbE Open Ethernet Switch offers a 3.2Tb/s of Wire-Speed Switching and scales up to 128 ports, ideally for storage and data center



The SN2100 switch offers a high-density, side-by-side 100GbE switching solution specifically designed to meet the growing demands of modern database, storage, and data center environments. With its compact 1RU form factor, it provides an impressive scaling capability of up to 128 ports.

The SN2100 switch offers an exceptional spine and top-of-rack (ToR) solution, providing maximum flexibility in data center deployments. It supports a wide range of port speeds, ranging from 10Gb/s to 100Gb/s per port, allowing for versatile connectivity options. With its high port density, it ensures full rack connectivity to any server, regardless of speed.

Powered by the Mellanox Spectrum™ ASIC and equipped with 16 ports running at 100GbE, the SN2100 delivers impressive switching capacity. With a remarkable 3.2Tb/s switching capacity and a processing capacity of 2.38Bpps, it ensures smooth and efficient data transmission. All of this is achieved within a compact 1RU form factor, saving valuable rack space in data center environments.
