re: Mellanox to open source Ethernet software

NO RATINGS
They make their money on the hardware that they sell and the ASICs in there are fairly specific to them. Opening up their software stack is hardly a big step, most companies don't do it because their products can easily be cloned by nefarious manufacturers (this is quite common in China). If you have such a secure position that no one can copy your hardware (e.g Juniper & Cisco won't), then you can do this with impunity. If this software actually helped commoditise the high end product then I would be happy, but I doubt it will.

How so? Personally, I don't believe this initiative will upset Ether-giants such as Cisco, etc. but I see them trying.

they seem to have missed the point.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
