Arista may face import ban after losing Cisco patent ruling

Friday 24 June 2016 | 12:38 CET | News
Arista Networks uses technology owned by Cisco Systems in networking gear made in Asia, according to a decision by the US International Trade Commission in a patent case. The trade commission upheld a finding of infringement by a US trade judge in February, Reuters reports. The ITC also recommended an import ban against Arista's products that infringe the patents. The ITC's ruling must now be reviewed by the US Trade Representative, who can approve or reject the commission's orders. Arista can also file a court appeal against the import ban.
