Credo and Innovium Announce Interoperability of Credo’s 400G Active Ethernet Cables with TERALYNX™ Switch

, a global innovation leader in high performance, low
power connectivity solutions for 100G, 200G, and 400G port enabled
networks, and Innovium, Inc., a leading provider of networking switch
solutions for data centers, today announced the successful
interoperability of Credo’s Active Ethernet Cable (AEC) connectivity
solutions with Innovium’s industry-leading 12.8Tbps TERALYNX™ switch
silicon. Interoperability includes support for 400G/200G based QSFP-DD
to QSFP-DD, QSFP-DD to 4xQSFP28 and QSFP56 to 2xQSFP28 Active Ethernet
Cables. The companies will demonstrate their products live at Optical
Fiber Communications (OFC) Conference and Exhibition, to be held March
5-7, 2019 at the San Diego, CA Convention Center.

As customers adopt 400G for data center connectivity, the ability to use
AEC’s to deploy lighter gauge, lighter weight, and superior bend radius
solutions that also deliver longer reach for 50G PAM4 technology offers
customers a major cost savings for high-bandwidth intra-rack and
inter-rack connectivity vs currently-available optical solutions.

“The extended reach capability of Credo’s Active Ethernet Cables enables
data center customers to drastically reduce cap-ex by leveraging high
radix 12.8Tbps switch solutions from Innovium to span across multiple
server-storage racks”, said Amit Sanyal, VP of Product Management and
Marketing at Innovium. “Innovium, the only provider of a low-latency,
programmable 12.8Tbps switch silicon in the market, is excited to
partner with Credo to announce the successful demonstration of 100-400G
interoperability with Credo’s unique portfolio of Active Ethernet

“Credo’s Active Ethernet Cables in conjunction with innovative 12.8T
switch solutions from Innovium are intended to help accelerate the
deployment of 400G Data Center infrastructure. In addition to superior
cost and power performance, Credo AEC’s are uniquely capable of
providing Gearbox functionality within the cable to increase Data Center
architecture flexibility”, said Job Lam, Credo Co-Founder and inventor
of the AEC. “The AEC’s allow for easy retrofit upgrade paths as the 400G
eco-system evolves. The deterministic nature of the solution also
eliminates copper variability inherent in Direct Attached Copper Cables
(DACs) and insures error free data transfer”.
