NVIDIA Quantum-2 CS9500 Modular Switch Series
As artificial intelligence (AI) and increasingly complex applications demand faster, smarter, and more scalable networks, NVIDIA 400 gigabits per second (400Gb/s) InfiniBand provides the fastest networking solution available, offered on the world’s only fully offloadable in-network computing platform.
The Era of Data-Driven Computing
Complex workloads demand ultra-fast processing of high-resolution simulations, extreme-size datasets, and complex, highly parallelized algorithms that require real-time information exchanges. As the highest-performing fabric solution in a 29U form factor, the CS9500 delivers 1600 terabits per second (Tb/s) of full bidirectional bandwidth with ultra-low port latency. The CS9500 modular switches create the highest scalability for large data aggregation through the network, with the highest application performance of complex computations while data moves through the data center network.
Switch system options

WORLD-CLASS INFINIBAND PERFORMANCE
NVIDIA Mellanox Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol (SHARP)™ In-Network Computing technology offloads collective communication operations from the CPU to the switch network, improving application performance by an order of magnitude.
NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand with self-healing networking capabilities overcomes link failures and achieves network recovery 5,000X faster than any software-based solution—enhancing system performance, scalability, and network utilization.
NVIDIA Mellanox Unified Fabric Management (UFM®) platforms combine enhanced, real-time network telemetry with AI-powered cyber intelligence and analytics to realize higher utilization of fabric resources and a competitive advantage, while reducing OPEX.
- Three versions of switches to choose from based on number of ports : 2.048, 1.024, or 512
- Flexible pay-as-you-grow design enables data center infrastructures to start small ans scale according to need
- Single point of management for each switch
