Mellanox (MLNX +1.7%) strengthens its 100G hand some more by acquiring IPtronics, a Danish maker of components for high-speed optical interconnects, for $47.5M in cash. Mellanox says the deal, which follows its May purchase of silicon photonics interconnect firm Kotura, will help it deliver "end-to-end optical interconnect solutions at [100G] and beyond." Both purchases appear aimed at dealing with the long-term threat posed by Intel (INTC), which (with the help of acquisitions) wants to integrate InfiniBand controllers onto its server CPUs, and bake 100G silicon interconnects into its server platforms.
