ExaLINK Fusion

The ExaBlaze ExaLINK Fusion is high performance switch and application platform. It enables you to:

  • Patch together any two ports, or fan out multicast data with less than 5 ns latency
  • Connect multiple servers to a single uplink port with 95 ns of port to port latency. Everything you need to get to the exchange with nothing you don’t
  • Switch packets at Layer 2 with 110 ns of latency, and a subset of full Layer 3 functionality
