Overview

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).

Ixia Bypass Switches provide fail-safe, inline protection designed to fit a network of any size. These switches safeguard a network with automated failover protection, preventing temporary tool outages from escalating into costly network outages.

  • Prevent unnecessary network downtime for tool servicing and failures
  • Ensure reliability and minimal device downtime with high MTBFs/MTTRs 
  • Supports the deployment of active-standby and active-active network and security architectures for maximum flexibility
  • >High available feature support and fail-to-wire network port architecture, ensures that traffic is never interrupted by device failure
  • Support network speeds of up to 40Gbps
