The 30 Hottest Tech Releases In September


Cisco Nexus 3548

Cisco's much anticipated new Nexus switch is also a benchmark in the market for low-latency switching, which is favored by financial institutions and other customers where fractions of seconds in data transfer can mean big money. Key to the Nexus 3548 is a technology called Algorithm Boost, which gives users a detailed view of how the switch is performing while in action. Cisco built Algo Boost into its proprietary ASIC and claims it can deliver 190-nanosecond latency in environments with small-to-medium Layer 2 and Layer 3 scaling requirements.
