MetaMux 48E «NEW»

MetaMux 48E is a hybrid multi-layer switch designed for the most latency critical networks such as trading environments.

It is multiple switches in one – performing layer 1 switching in only 5 ns and multiplexing/aggregation in 55 ns, making it extremely useful for connecting trading machines directly to exchanges.

Features and Benefits:

  • Fast multiplexing: Aggregate streams from multiple sources into a single stream for hand-off to exchanges, microwave links, or WAN links. Also configurable as multiple many-to-one multiplexers.
  • Integrated layer 1 switching: Patching, media conversion, tapping replication and packet statistics. Wire-once to reduce visits to the data center. Use Layer 1 broadcast to implement a return path with a latency of just 5 ns and virtually no jitter.
  • Deterministic: Replaces taps to monitor or share feeds such as market-data with full regeneration and no additional overhead.
  • Flexible SFP/SFP+ support: Allows the use of less expensive modules, including direct attached copper cables, that are boosted by MetaMux’s high-performance signal recovery and regeneration.
  • Protocol flexibility: Protocol agnostic at layer 1 while layer 2 packet features support 1GbE and 10GbE with 100M. 100M Ethernet and rate conversion are planned for a future software release.
  • Packet statistics: Advanced monitoring. Captures high-level packet statistics across all ports. Supports detailed switch statistics via SNMP or CLI. Provides tcpdump and LLDP on every port.
  • FPGA Development: Flexible platform with all 48 ports connected to the onboard Xilinx® Ultrascale™ or Ultrascale+ FPGA(s) for custom applications.
  • x86-64 Linux management: Uses open standards platform and MOS operating software to provide user extensible solutions.
