Zeptonics has released a statement in response to the recent court order by the Federal Court of Australia:
Lately, Cisco has been making a big deal about a new 250ns switch that can sometimes break the 200ns "barrier" if it's in "warp mode". Our ZeptoMux operates at 130ns or faster, all the time, in regular mode.
So if you make a living from high frequency trading - as a trader, broker or market operator - you should consider buying switching gear from us. Zeptonics devices are the purpose-built, low-latency benchmark, and no amount of PR can warp that reality.
( Having said that, if you don't need the lowest latency, the new Cisco switch sounds like a great product. )
Initial sales of Zeptonics switching devices confirm lowest-latency claims - 18 September 2012
World's fastest switching device goes to beta testing - ZeptoMux - 3 September 2012
Zeptonics recently won the grand prize - the $40,000 Innovation Excellence Award - at the prestigious Tech23 innovation awards in Sydney. We also won the ATP Innovations Explorer Award which pays for a week of investor meetings in Silicon Valley. Read our press release.
Low-Latency.com chose Zeptonics as its "Best in Show" at the SIFMA Tech Leaders Expo in New York in June, where we first demonstrated the ZeptoMux.
See our news and events section for details of our upcoming activities.

We have been able to verify the functionality of the ZeptoMux and the latency numbers have been spot on.
I’m extremely impressed.
We are now taking orders - see how to buy.
ZeptonicsTM is developing a range of network devices that will minimise latency at a number of critical points in modern trading scenarios. See some example use cases and some answers to frequently asked questions.
The first network appliance we've brought to market is the world's fastest 10GbE switching device, optimised for trading. The ZeptoMuxTM is a 23-to-1 multiplexing switch that operates with a fibre-to-fibre latency (including SFP+s) of ~130ns.
Future devices on our roadmap include a firewall and a network interface card. All of them will be purpose-built for advanced trading applications.
Zeptonics plans to offer a range of best-in-class market solutions, including trade matching, DMA gateways, risk management and bespoke consulting.
Projects still in the Zeptonics lab include a market data broadcast solution and a network tap for security and performance monitoring.

The Zeptonics team of hardware, firmware and software engineers are perhaps better described as re-engineers. They're re-thinking all aspects of trading technology in order to crush latency at every possible opportunity.
They've joined Zeptonics for the chance to build lean, mean "race car" devices for market participants who, until now, have had to use all-purpose "sports car" solutions cluttered with non-essential features.
Their solutions are fresh, creative and, in some cases, actually kind of mind-blowing. If latency has a butt, these are the folks who just might end up kicking it.
Zeptonics is an official FIX Protocol member firm - badge number 7742.
