INTRODUCING THE WORLD'S FASTEST LAYER 2+ SWITCH


5 NS FAN-OUT

Icon showing ExaLINK Fusion fanout and tapping capabilities using arrows.

Patch together any two ports, or fan out multicast data with less than 5 ns latency.

46 NS AGGREGATION

Icon showing ExaLINK Fusion aggregation, in this example, 3 ports into 1 uplink port.

Connect multiple servers to a single uplink port with 46 ns of port to port latency. Everything you need to get to the exchange with nothing you don't.

95 NS LAYER 2+

Icon showing ExaLINK Fusion Layer 2 Switching capability.

Switch packets at Layer 2 with 95 ns of latency, and a subset of full Layer 3 functionality.

THE PLATFORM THAT GROWS WITH YOUR BUSINESS

Featuring a modular architecture that scales with your network. Three line card bays provide the flexibility to grow to 48 SFP+ ports for 10GbE and 1GbE.

Each 10GbE line card includes 16 SFP+ ports, all of which have access to the 5 ns patching and fanout, 46 ns aggregation or 95 ns Layer 2+ switching functionality. Four port, 40 GbE line cards and other standards are on the product roadmap.

LOGGING

Icon of clock demonstrating ExaLINK Fusion timestamping capability.

Replicate packets to any port for logging, and optionally replace the Ethernet checksum with a nanosecond accurate timestamp. Synchronise to PTP or GPS via a pulse-per-second input.

STATISTICS

Know your network. Full packet statistics for all ports so you know how much data is flowing and how fast your infrastructure is running.

FLEXIBLE

Icon of a plus indicating the flexible nature of the product.

Create multiple virtual switches and routers to segment your network, and share resources between segments as necessary.

THE ULTIMATE DEVELOPMENT PLATFORM

Get closer to the wire than ever. Deploy your network application directly to a plug-in FPGA module on the ExaLINK Fusion. In addition to the Layer 2 switching module which comes standard, a user application module can be fitted in a second internal bay.

The current version of this module features a latest generation Xilinx Ultrascale FPGA; future modules will include other FPGAs and network processors. The application module can be configured to connect to any of the front panel ports or Layer 2 switch ports.

This module also includes multiple QDR-IV SRAM devices from Cypress Semiconductor. The high operating frequency and dual port operation of this SRAM enables ultra low latency packet buffers for demanding network environments. In addition, the unrivalled random transaction rate of QDR-IV facilitates custom applications where immediate lookups into large tables or other data structures is required. For applications requiring much higer density, two DDR4 DIMM sockets are onboard providing gigabytes of RAM.
