UNH InterOperability Lab to Host 39th InfiniBand and RoCE Plugfest

April 5, 2022 - Durham, N.H.,-- The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), an independent provider of broad-based testing and standards conformance solutions for the networking industry, today announced they will be hosting the 39th Plugfest event for the InfiniBand & RoCE devices from May 2-6, 2022. This event will provide the opportunity to perform interoperability testing of selected RDMA/RoCE-based Ethernet switch systems and RNICS among a range of vendor switches and RoCE-based Ethernet NICs. 

 “The InfiniBand Trade Association (IBTA) and UNH-IOL have been collaborating together since 2003 and we are now conducting our 39th Compliance and Interoperability Plugfest, said Rupert Dance, Software Forge. "These events have been critical to the success of RDMA technologies. They result in InfiniBand Integrators’ Lists and RoCE Integrators’ Lists which have helped to guide end users, High Performance Computing (HPC) and Enterprise Data Centers (EDC) when building and deploying their latest supercomputer systems."

The UNH-IOL has been hosting Plugfests, or group test events, since its inception back in 1988. The lab provides a neutral test environment which brings together key players in the technology community to test devices across multi-vendor interoperability platforms. Working closely with the  InfiniBand Trade Association and The RoCE Initiative, this test event will provide participants a wide array of testing benefits including free participation, remote access, and a non-competitive environment for interop testing.
