Arista Comments on Cisco ITC Litigation

In a press statement, Arista Networks reiterated its view that the two complaints made by Cisco before the the International Trade Commission (ITC) lack merit.  Arista said Cisco’s unorthodox methods of publicizing them suggest a deliberate effort by Cisco to use the courts to gain a marketing opportunity.

“The Commission institutes an investigation in response to virtually every complaint that is filed. Thus, the decision to institute based upon Cisco’s complaints is an expected procedural event,” said Marc Taxay, Vice President and General Counsel for Arista Networks. “Naturally, we will aggressively defend against Cisco’s allegations and look forward to presenting our case to the Commission.”

Arista will report its financial results on Thursday, February 19th.

Sckipio's G.fast Hits 500 Mbps at 200m

Sckipio Technologies, a start-up based in Israel, successfully demonstrated G.fast at speeds greater than 500Mbps for 200 meters – double the official ITU targets for this new broadband standard, according to the company.

Sckipio said laboratory trials with multiple broadband access service providers globally achieved more than 200 Mbps at 400 meters, again doubling the target distance for the given rate.

“G.fast was optimized to deliver up to 1Gbps in short distances,” said David Baum, CEO of Sckipio Technologies. “Yet, we tuned our technology to allow telcos to reach more customers with higher performance from farther away.”

The initial test results are preliminary and based upon lab evaluations over real binders. Sckipio expects additional performance improvements as the solution is further optimized.
