Innovium, Inc. a leading provider of high performance, innovative switching silicon solutions for Cloud and Edge data centers, announced today that it shipped over one million 400G TERALYNX® switch silicon ports in 2020. Innovium hit this significant milestone driven by rapid ramp of 400G connectivity by top cloud customers using its TERALYNX® based switches. As a pioneer in 50G PAM4 and 200/400G switch solutions, Innovium collaborated with optics and copper connectivity ecosystem to develop highly robust, scalable and power-efficient solutions to meet customers’ exploding networking needs.

“2020 was a great year for Innovium. Demand for bandwidth accelerated across all cloud data centers driven by worldwide growth in online businesses, remote everything and digitization efforts,” said Rajiv Khemani, Co-founder and CEO of Innovium. “We are delighted to have enabled cloud customers ramp their data center networks with 400G connectivity with our data center optimized and proven TERALYNX switch silicon. We shipped significantly more 400G ports than system vendors, and look forward to supporting OEMs and cloud customers with our highly robust, differentiated silicon.”

“Network traffic from data-centric and cloud-native applications continues to grow at a rapid pace inside Cloud service provider data centers, driving a continuous upgrade to higher performance switches. We expect 400G adoption by Cloud service providers to accelerate in 2021, resulting in a strong growth in their network spending,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Senior Research Director at Dell’Oro Group. “Innovium’s TERALYNX switch silicon is designed to address such speed transition.”

Based on a grounds-up design, Innovium delivers TERALYNX switch family, the only 1T – 25.6T programmable and data center optimized switch family, with support for 10G – 400G, as well as open-source SONiC OS and FLASHLIGHT® telemetry. It provides the most scalable and power-efficient data center ethernet switches, with 2x lower latency and largest on-chip buffers, resulting in the best application performance. Having quickly achieved over 20% market share in data center switches supporting 50G SerDes, Innovium is the only credible silicon diversity option in the market.
