Import ban on Arista products goes into effect

Wednesday 24 August 2016 | 15:46 CET | News
The International Trade Commission's import ban and cease and desist order covering all Arista products went into effect on 23 August, Cisco said in a blog, citing a US trade representative. The ITC determined that Arista intentionally infringed three Cisco patents covering core, Cisco-proprietary network functionality. Cisco said the decision will affect Arista customers, partners, suppliers and investors as it will block the marketing, sale or distribution of all inventory of imported infringing products. It also means that Arista will be unable to honour the service and warranty contracts
