Achieving Low Latency in Different Types of Wireless Networks Requires an End-to-end Focus
Latency is a function of the proper network design. Radio latency must be considered alongside end-to-end IP latency and round-trip delay. The closer applications are located to where data is being processed in data centers, clouds, or at the network edge, the lower the possible latency.
Product Innovation in Ultra Low Latency Applications
Cisco’s new Nexus 3550-T FPGA switch platform is the first switch with Layer 3 capabilities that can also run multiple application personalities.
Blink: You’re Too Slow
When playing in the high speed switching game – timing is everything. Timing ‘sets the pace’ for visibility to established the ‘where and when,’ correlation across a broad computing environment plus compliance and digital forensics with precision time stamps. Every element of the data center requires accurate timing at a level that leaves no room […]
Benchmarking at Ultra-Low Latency
Since we started shipping the Nexus 3548 with AlgoBoost to our customers in the beginning of November, there has been more and more interest in testing and verifying the switch’s latency in different traffic scenarios. What we have found so far is while network engineers might be well experienced in testing the throughput capabilities of a […]
Algo Boost Series: Part 3 Commitment to Innovation with Nexus 3548
On November 5th I posted part 2 of the Algo Boost series with a fantastic discussion around Customer proof points on the Nexus 3548. In our third and final segment in the series I interviewed Chih-Tsung Huang, Director of Engineering in the Server, Switching, & Virtualization Product Group to shed some light on Cisco’s continued […]
Cisco Nexus 3548 with Algo Boost is now Shipping
Alas… the much anticipated FCS (First Customer Shipment) of the earth shattering Cisco 3548 Switch is now available. When your business depends on nanoseconds, this switch enables unprecedented advantages in lowest latency with a full feature set. Customers should also bear in mind that in conjunction to announcing shipping units, our ecosystem partnership is more […]
