Under 1K for 48 10G ports?  Are you missing a decimal place?

I keep hearing how cheap 100G is compared to 40G and it doesn't seem to hold true. Prove me wrong.

Cisco Nexus and Arista both have switches with 48x 10G ports and 2x - 6x 40G ports for under $1k. Swap those 40G for 100G and you're at $5k - $7k.

Am I missing some cheap switches with 100G?

I ask this because the transport companies seem to have given up on 40G.
