Over the years, Bay Microsystems has built a solid reputation within the networking industry for the company’s IBEx™ Global Fabric Extender platforms*, meeting the need for seamless Ethernet and InfiniBand fabric extension across the globe with ultra-high network utilization, ultra-low latency and jitter, and deterministic/lossless transport.
The product portfolio utilizes Bay’s proprietary packet and transport processing technology along with enhanced buffering and end-to-end flow control to reliably extend native InfiniBand and lossless Ethernet Data Center Bridging (DCB) fabrics over campus, metro and wide area networks spanning from just a few miles to thousands of miles. This capability enables IT managers to maintain protocol continuity beyond a single site to virtually anywhere around the globe without the need to modify existing applications or the local InfiniBand or Ethernet DCB network.
Bay’s next generation FX Series (learn more about the FX Series here) builds on the success of the legacy IBEx platforms and ushers in a new, more advanced solution for extending high performance fabrics beyond the data center and over virtually any multipoint MAN/WAN configuration.
*Note: IBEx is no longer generally available for sale but maybe available in limited manner for some of the existing deployments.
