Arista infringes Cisco networking patents, U.S. trade agency rules

By Andrew Chung NEW YORK (Reuters) – Network equipment maker Cisco Systems Inc won a key victory in a sprawling legal battle with rival Arista Networks Inc on Thursday after the U.S. International Trade Commission ruled Arista infringed three of Cisco's patents with its ethernet switches used in computer data centers and servers. The ITC, which investigates complaints of violations of U.S. intellectual property, also recommended an import ban against Arista's products that infringe the patents. The ITC's ruling must now be reviewed by the U.S. Trade Representative, who can approve or disapprove of the commission's orders.
