Overview
Brocade VCS fabric technology helps organization create efficient data center networks that just works. Ethernet fabric built using Brocade VCS fabric technology provides unmatched automation, scalability, efficiency, and VM awareness compared to traditional network architecture and competitive fabric offerings. VCS helps eliminate many of the limitations of traditional Ethernet networks in the data center.

The ExaLINK Hydra the world’s highest density Layer 1 switch. Unlike traditional network switches that operate at the data-link layer (layer 2), the ExaLINK Hydra operates at the physical network layer (layer 1). Connections through the device are made electrically through a matrix switch (see overleaf). This allows the device to tap into connections (for network monitoring), patch connections between ports (for reconfiguration) and fan-out connections from one port to many (for high speed applications), at nearly zero latency (<5ns).
