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).

Force10 TeraScale E-Series leverages a unique three CPU architecture that distributes switching, routing and management functionalities between three distinct processors, ensuring that an attack on one function does not impact the rest of the system. Additionally, by providing separate data and control planes, the TeraScale E-Series also allows network managers to always access the system, even under attack. And with advanced rate limiting algorithms, the TeraScale E-Series is able to prevent traffic floods that could cripple the system.
