To ensure the highest quality of service, latency on both switches is minimal at maximum distance. The accepted industry standard for VoIP is 150 milliseconds. Both switches perform at 0.128-0.134 milliseconds (128-134 microseconds) of latency at the maximum frame size tested. This is more crucial for real time applications like voice calls or video conferencing.
Using eight Cisco Catalyst switches to span 2,000ft would result in approximately 1.024 milliseconds (1024 microseconds) of latency, compared to 0.133 milliseconds (133 microseconds) with the FLEX8 switch at the maximum frame size tested.
