Introducing the NEXCOM Single Port 200GbE Network Card


This week, NEXCOM introduced its new 200GbE network card in the form of the NL 110FM-OS which features the NVIDIA ConnectX-6 Dx SmartNIC silicon and a PCIe Gen4 interface. Featuring a single QSFP56 port to enable double-bit data transmission through a new signal modulation format called PAM4. The network card can deliver 200 gigabits per second of data traffic in each direction using a single 4-lane copper or fiber cable.

While the NVIDIA ConnectX-6 Dx SmartNIC provides additional features including advanced networking and security to accelerate mission-critical applications, making the network card perfect for security, virtualization, SDN, NFV, the Big Data, machine learning, storage and network performance testing. and emulation applications.

“In response to the growing demand for increased network traffic bandwidth, NEXCOM, a leading network appliance vendor, has launched a compact single-port 200GbE network interface card (NIC). The NL 110FM-OS leverages the award-winning NVIDIA ConnectX-6 Dx SmartNIC silicon and a PCIe Gen4 interface that doubles the data transfer speed, compared to the previous generation PCIe standard. Network connection is enabled via a QSFP56 port to utilize double-bit PAM4 data transmission, and the NIC card is compatible with NEXCOM’s latest rack-mount network devices.

“The sheer volume of data circulating on the computer network leaves service providers no choice but to adapt to the new reality. One of the ways to solve the problem is to increase the number of servers and another is to migrate to more compact solutions based on the latest technologies. The first method will require the purchase of additional servers, resulting in increased maintenance staff and increased power consumption, while the second method is simply to increase the bandwidth of existing network nodes. The latter option offers a greener solution and should be preferable for all communication service providers, whether or not they have environmental concerns in reducing their carbon footprint. »

“By adopting the latest 200GbE NIC powered by ConnectX-6, our customers can dramatically increase their server throughput and switch to massive data processing without much effort,” said Matthew Liu, CTO of Network & Communication Solutions. at Nexcom. “We have been working with NVIDIA for a long time on adapting previous generation LAN controllers and look forward to our next successful joint projects.”
