Upon the comparative study of modern switches which has been conducted by Miercom, the independent test laboratory, the Cisco Nexus 9508 and Nexus 9516 switches had been evaluated as the fastest ones in the world and characterized by the lowest latency and power consumption compared to similar competitive products.
According to the results of the study the Cisco Systems switches demonstrated superior performance when transferring data via 40GE ports and they also stand out for their IT solutions speed. Regardless of frame sizes, these switches are identified by low latency and show a 65% better result than its competitors. In addition to these, the mentioned model-Cisco Nexus 9508 needs 36% lower of power consumption per 40GE port compared with the most energy efficient solutions in the industry.
This is important to mention that Cisco Nexus 9000 Series switchers are designed to support large data centers, large-scale cloud infrastructure and corporate networks.
