AddOn Networks Transceivers: Ideal for AI/ML Apps


Enhanced Data Center Capabilities for Industry Demands

AddOn Networks introduces a new lineup of 800G transceivers, facilitating AI, ML, and automation in data center applications. Compatible with InfiniBand and Ethernet, the range provides customers with a compelling alternative to NEMs for building and maintaining advanced optical networks.

Data centre operators need extensive data, storage and compute capabilities to ensure the enhanced speeds and low latency required to overcome growing industry demands. AI and ML tools optimise existing infrastructure and establish accurate data analytics for faster decision-making and increased automation. Yet the amount of bandwidth necessary for these to operate successfully, and the lack of compatible solutions in the market, makes selecting the right product a challenge. With this product launch, AddOn Networks will provide operators with the means to optimise their existing networks, alongside a premium support service and a reduction in part lead times.

Our 800G transceivers are parallel tested in our customers’ environments to ensure performance matches what is offered by the NEMs

“This family of transceivers mark an exciting new era for AddOn Networks,” said AddOn Networks’ Director of Product Line Management Ray Hagen. “Businesses operating in the data centre industry may already be aware of the benefits of 800G transceivers, but when ordering these directly through NEMs, they often experience long lead times and unnecessary delays in delivery. With our new range of transceivers, we will compress the timeline from order to delivery to ensure customers get solutions exactly when they require them. As a result, operators can maximise data centre output through AI and ML tools while making essential cost and time savings.”

The transceiver range will enhance the handling and processing of bandwidth-intensive data flows when migrating from serial Central Processing Unit (CPU) based architecture towards parallel data flow in the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). Once implemented within existing infrastructure, the transmission of data is accelerated, with additional capabilities to increase storage and compute capacity available to operators.

“Our 800G transceivers are parallel tested in our customers’ environments to ensure performance matches what is offered by the NEMs,” continued Hagen. “Our global leadership in third-party optics and expertise in testing means we can offer our customers not just a best-in-class transceiver, but a best-in-class service too. ”

AddOn Networks carries out 100% testing in its laboratory to guarantee the family of transceivers mirror the customers’ data flows and their front-end environments to ensure full compatibility and performance while offering a lifetime warranty. As a result, customers can benefit from adaptable and reliable products, tailored to meet the specific demands of their data centre.
