SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel — Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLNX) today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2017.
“We are pleased to achieve a record revenue quarter and resume our growth. Our third quarter Ethernet revenues achieved double digit sequential growth, driven by increasing deployments of our 25 gigabit per second and above products, which demonstrates our leadership position in these markets,” said Eyal Waldman, President and CEO of Mellanox Technologies. “During the third quarter, InfiniBand revenues declined seven percent sequentially mainly due to a large Department of Energy CORAL deployment in the second quarter. On a year-over-year basis, our InfiniBand high-performance computing and artificial intelligence revenues increased by double digit percentages. We believe Mellanox is well positioned to meet our customers’ expanding performance needs with the introduction of multiple new products. We see multiple growth engines for our Ethernet and InfiniBand products.”
