Cisco (CSCO) announces the Nexus 3548, a 10-gig Ethernet switch it claims offers superior latency thanks to proprietary technology called Algo Boost (video). The switch is particularly aimed at latency-sensitive financial institutions. Startup Arista Networks, which just happened to announce new switches of its own today, has taken a decent chunk of the low-latency market. Cisco boasts the Nexus 3548 sports a latency of 190nm, better than the 350nm claimed for Arista's gear.
