[PLUG] Two node Infiniband connection hardware

Is it possible to make a two node Infiniband connection with Infiniband cards in the two servers and a cable between them, or is a switch always required? There are hints (e.g., https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19787-01/819-2993/bhcfghcc/index.html and http://www.bussink.ch/?p=1183 suggesting it is possible), but I can't find anything definitive. Vendors of course want one to purchase a switch.

Thank you very much.
