NVIDIA Quantum CS8500 Modular Switch Series
Today’s rapid data growth, real-time data processing, and mission-critical application environments fuel demand for faster, more efficient interconnect solutions. The high-density NVIDIA Quantum™ CS8500 switch provides up to 800 ports of HDR 200 gigabits per second (Gb/s) InfiniBand connectivity, enabling high throughput, availability, and scalability.
Streamlining Network Design and Topologies
By implementing NVIDIA port-split technology, the CS8500 switch provides a double-density radix for 100Gb/s (HDR 100) data speeds, reducing the cost of network design and network topologies. Supporting up to 1,600 ports of 100Gb/s, CS8500 is an ultra-dense chassis switch perfect for medium-to-large deployments that require lower power, latency, and space.

WORLD-CLASS INFINIBAND PERFORMANCE
NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand SHARP, In-Network Computing offloads collective communication operations from the CPU to the switch network, decreasing the amount of data traversing the network, dramatically reducing the time of Message Passing Interface (MPI) operations, and 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.
