IBTA Updates Integrators’ List Following PF23 Compliance & Interoperability Testing

September 25th, 2013

We’re proud to announce the availability of the IBTA April 2013 Combined Cable and Device Integrators’ List – a compilation of results from the IBTA Plugfest 23, during which we conducted the first-ever Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) 100Gb/s InfiniBand standard compliance testing.

IBTA’s updated Integrators’ List and our newest Plugfest testing is a testament to the IBTA’s commitment to advancing InfiniBand technology and ensuring its interoperability, as all cables and devices on the list successfully passed the required compliance tests and interoperability procedures. Vendors listed may now access the IBTA Integrators’ List promotional materials and a special marketing program for their products.

Plugfest 23 was a huge success, attracting top manufacturers and would not have been possible without donated testing equipment from the following vendors: Agilent Technologies, Anritsu, Molex, Tektronix and Wilder Technologies. We are thrilled with the level of participation and the caliber of technology manufacturers who came out and supported the IBTA.

The updated Integrators’ List is a tool used by the IBTA to assure vendors’ customers and end-users that manufacturers have made the mark of compliance and interoperability. It is also a method for furthering the InfiniBand specification. The integrator’s list is published every spring and fall following the bi-annual Plugfest and serves to assist IT professionals, including data center managers and CIOs, with their planned deployment of InfiniBand solutions.

We’ve already begun preparations for Plugfest 24, which will take place October 7-18, 2013 at the University of New Hampshire’s Interoperability Laboratory. For more information, or to register for Plugfest 24, please visit IBTA Plugfest website.
