10Gb Ethernet Transceivers

The adoption of 10Gb Ethernet is growing rapidly. For the majority of cabling runs up to 8.5 meters, clients can use Direct Attach Cable (DAC), especially when connecting servers within the same rack between closely located racks. For longer distances, use short or long range transceivers and optical cables.

IBM SFP+ SR Transceiver

IBM Part # 46C3447, EB28*
Connector: SFP+
Speed: 10Gb
Distance: Up to 300m
Cable: Optical
IBM SFP+ LR Transceiver

IBM Part # 90Y9412
Connector: SFP+
Speed: 10Gb
Distance: Up to 10km

40Gb Ethernet Transceivers

While 40Gb Ethernet is an emerging technology, there are many options. To increase the number of available 10Gb ports, use QSFP+ DAC Break Out Cables to split out each 40Gb port and connect up to four 10Gb SFP+ external ports.

IBM QSFP+ SR Transceiver

IBM Part # 49Y7884, EB27*
Connector: QSFP+
Speed: 40Gb
Distance: Up to 150m

Systems

IBM offers a broad systems and storage portfolio combined with decades of experience solving real business problems. With x86, POWER and mainframe systems, disk, tape and network storage systems, IBM can offer the right combination of systems to meet the challenges of your business.

Storage

Storage efficiency is more vital than ever. Your disk utilisation rate may be as low as 20% — while the amount of data you are required to store is exploding. IBM Storage can help.

Networking

The smarter data centre with improved economics of IT can be achieved by connecting servers and storage with a high-speed and intelligent network fabric that is smarter, faster, greener, open and easy to manage. IBM takes an open, standards-based approach to implement the latest advances in today's flat, converged data centre network designs.

Software

IBM's comprehensive Systems Software solutions help to centralise, streamline and automate your physical and virtual infrastructure, allowing you to optimise workloads and increase your ability to deliver IT services that align with business goals. Let us show you how IBM Systems Software helps you realise the value of IBM smarter computing, by allowing a more effective use of the advanced features in IBM hardware and operating systems.

Integrated solutions

The reality is that you need an IT infrastructure designed for data, tuned to the task and managed in the cloud. If your IT staff spends all of their time managing IT, they won't be working with you to drive innovation. You need your infrastructure to help you in the marketplace, to help you innovate, to help you be more competitive, to help you succeed.

Systems-related services

IBM Systems-related services offers a full range of services to help design, develop, integrate, optimise, validate and deploy comprehensive solutions that support On Demand Business.
