High-performance networking for Digital Manufacturing

Harness the power of workload acceleration

Manufacturers have always relied on technology to gain competitive advantage. Today, AI and HPC are accelerating that impact from advanced modeling and simulation to design and build new products, to processing information from millions of IoT devices or sensors in the field, to using advanced analytics for predictive maintenance and supply chain optimization – making it possible to deliver better products, more efficiently and in less time. 

Rockport helps manufacturers get the most out of their infrastructure investments, with an advanced direct interconnect solution that improves overall cluster efficiency, is simple to deploy and manage, scales in line with business needs and reduces environmental impact. 


Manufacturers can take advantage of HPC infrastructure to enable advanced modeling, simulation, and data analytics to overcome manufacturing challenges, optimize processes and design, improve quality, predict performance envelopes and points of failure, and accelerate testing using applications such as: 

  • Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
  • Computer-aided engineering (CAE)
  • Computer structural mechanics 
  • Emissions modelling 
  • Finite element analysis (FEA)
  • Pre/post mesh creation and visualization

High-performance computing has become a critical enabler of innovation, new product design and development, and product testing and validation in virtually all manufacturing companies, meaning HPC is helping manufacturers both cut costs and create new revenues. "

Modern architecture for complex workloads

Designed as the fabric of the future, the Rockport Scale Fabric has a fully distributed architecture ready for the next generation of AI and HPC.

By eliminating centralized switching, Rockport helps manufacturers accelerate time to market and improve application performance without increasing operational burden or compromising on sustainability targets: 

Faster results, predictably

Complete more workloads with fewer idle resources, by accelerating cluster performance.

Reduce overhead and operational burden

Rockport deploys in a fraction of the time of traditional networks, while advanced telemetry ensures complete system transparency.

A greener data center

Meet or exceed green targets by distributing the switching function and consuming less energy than traditional networks.
