The XG2600 is designed for low latency applications, such as storage, digital video, university research, Web hosting and content delivery networks. Latency on the switch is 300 nanoseconds, the company says.

The XG2600 also includes field-reversible cooling fans to reduce the overall cost of cooling.

The Fujitsu switch will go up against other small form factor, low latency 10G Ethernet switches from Cisco, Arista, BLADE Network Technologies, Extreme Networks, Brocade, Force10, HP ProCurve and other vendors.

The XG2600 costs $US18,000, or just less than $US700 per port.
