Mellanox 12-Port 40/56GbE and up to 48-Port 1/10GbE Switch System
Part code: SX1012

The SX1012 switch system provides the highest-performing top-of-rack (ToR) solution in a half-width 1U form factor by delivering up to 1.3Tb/s of non-blocking throughput with 1/10GbE or 40/56GbE form factors.The SX1012 is the ideal top-of-rack (ToR) switch for small pods connecting a small number of servers with 40/56GbE. Each QSFP port can be used with a passive breakout cable to create four discrete SFP+ interfaces to be used as 10GbE ports, for a total of 48-ports on the smallest form factor 10GbE ToR in the industry.

The SX1012 switch has a rich set of networking and application performance features that excel and enable Software Defined Networking in any data center, making this switch the perfect solution for your network.The SX1012 carries a unique design to accommodate the highest performance at a small form factor. The unique design allows placement of two switches positioned side-by-side in a standard 19” rack to occupy 1RU height with high availability from the network interface card level.

Key features:

  • High Density - 12 40/56GbE ports in 1RU & up to 48 1/10GbE ports
  • Lowest Latency - - 220nsec for 40GbE & 280nsec for 10GbE
  • Lowest Power - - Maximum power consumption:


  • Unprecedented Performance- Storage and server applications run faster
  • Smallest form factor ToR switch
  • 48 x 10GbE ports in half-width 1RU
