Invitation to Chicago Latency Summit

Due to the Feb 2nd Blizzard in Chicago, Force10 Networks has rescheduled our product launch and Latency Summit  for 4:30-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 23 at the Trump Hotel, Grand Salon Room, 401 North Wabash Avenue.

Please join us for this event hosted by Force10 CEO, Henry Wasik.

Simply click here to register for this event and avoid getting stuck in rush hour traffic! Instead join Henry and your Chicago based Force10 Team for this event which will include a cocktail reception, followed by a presentation and discussion of new approaches to switch architectures by WW Technical Marketing V.P. Arpit Joshipura.

Trading organizations and financial institutions continue to hunt for new ways to drive down network latency while improving network visibility and instrumentation. Register for the Chicago Latency Summit, and hear what Force10 is doing to meet these requirements.

This event is the public launch of our new S4810 switch which incorporates the latest in chip technologies to provide our customers a competitive advantage.

Leveraging a non-blocking, cut-through switching architecture, the S4810 delivers line rate L2 and L3 forwarding capacity with ultra-low latency to maximize network performance. The compact design provides industry-leading density of 48 dual-speed 1/10GbE (SFP+) ports as well as four 40 GbE QSFP+ uplinks to conserve valuable rack space and simplify the migration to 40 Gbps in the data center core. The switching latency of this product is sub 700 nanoseconds (currently undergoing final testing).


Cocktail and Appetizer Reception will follow where there will be plenty of time to ask questions and socialize among the influential individuals of Chicago’s trading and financial institutions.

Seating is limited so please register to ensure that you will be part of this informative industry event.
