IEEE 1355 HS-Links and their support devices have been investigated as part of the ESPRIT projects Macramé and Arches. A description of the HS-Link technology and initial experience with the RCube 8-way packet router and the Bullit HS-Link interface device are presented. A 64 node HS-Link switching network based using these devices is being constructed at CERN. We report on the the design and construction of the network testbed.
