Cisco Ups Its Switching Game With Low-Latency Nexus 3548
Cisco launched its Nexus 3548, a low-latency Ethernet switching system it claims is 60 percent faster than competitors' counterparts. Cisco's Nexus 3548 features a technology called Algorithm Boost, or Algo Boost, which gives users a detailed view of how the switch is performing during production.
Earlier this week, David Yen (pictured), senior vice president and general manager of Cisco's Data Center Group, told The Wall Street Journal Cisco is planning to "give Arista a very, very significant challenge."
"Today, Cisco has leapfrogged our competitors in delivering a full-featured switch that offers the lowest latency Ethernet in the networking industry," Yen said in a prepared statement.
