Arista Gear Improperly Uses Cisco Technology, Trade Agency Says

Arista Networks Inc. uses technology owned by Cisco Systems Inc. in networking gear made in Asia, a U.S. trade agency ruled in a patent case, setting the stage for an import ban.

The ruling Thursday by the U.S. International Trade Commission leaves Arista to ask the Obama administration to veto the import ban, or request that an appeals court throw out the case.
