STUTTGART, GERMANY: Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. has appointed Stordis as EMEA distributor for the Fujitsu XG series Ethernet switches, including the new XG2600 family of high performance ultra-low latency switches. The decision cements Stordis’ growing reputation as Europe’s leading distributor of high performance networking and storage products.
New to the European market, the Fujitsu XG2600 and XG2000 families offer users ultra-low latency 10GbE in a small 1U form factor. The use of advanced Fujitsu application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) technology has enabled industry-leading performance, with switch latency as low as 300 nanoseconds.
As network bandwidth increases, switching and network latency is increasingly important for maintaining true network performance, particularly for real-time applications. Low-latency networking solutions are a must-have technology in financial trading environments, live video streaming and communications, and in many other time-sensitive high performance application environments.
“We fought hard to win this distribution deal because the latest Fujitsu switches are the best products on the market. They are the perfect finish to our existing product portfolio, which is focused on low latency, high performance networking and storage infrastructure,” comments Alexander Jeffries, managing director at Stordis.
“By combining these switches with our large stock of best-in-class high performance networking cards, cabling and transceivers, we are now confident that we can offer resellers the lowest latency 10GbE networking solution on the market.”
“Stordis is the type of focused, value-added distributor we needed to deliver the Fujitsu XG Series of Ethernet switch products to the European market. The company’s high performance expertise combined with its significant stock of complementary cards, cables, and infrastructure gave us the confidence they could deliver a very comprehensive high performance solution to the channel.” comments Vic Herring, vice president of sales and marketing for Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc.
