Arista Delivers 400G Routers for Cloud Network Transformation
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Arista Networks today announced the new Arista 7800R family for demanding 400G cloud networks and the next generation of the Arista 7500R, 7280R Series. The new platforms support 100G and 400G Ethernet with compelling throughput, density and price-performance and offer new telemetry and intelligence embedded into the network for service provider, edge, 5G and IoT solutions. Enhancements in routing, security, and automation are delivered through Arista EOS (Extensible Operating System).
"As the leading provider of interconnection services in the Nordics, and the number one choice for access to the Russian and Baltic markets, Netnod provides the most flexible interconnection services available," said Mattias Karlsson, Head of Engineering, Netnod. "The Arista R3-Series expands our capacity for high performance peering and colocation services. It provides power efficient systems offering 400G and a rich feature set enabling us to offer industry-leading interconnection services at our Internet Exchanges throughout the Nordics."
The new 7800R3 Series provides 36 400G ports per line card, a 4X increase compared to prior modular systems, to address the largest cloud datacenter routing requirements. Enhancements to the 7500R3 Series deliver density and performance improvements with investment protection. The 7280R3 Series offers up to 48 400G ports that can be split into up to 192 100G ports. All R3-Series feature the proven VoQ deep buffer architecture, with support for 400G, increased route scale and new telemetry functions.
"The expansion of the R-Series to 400G and the new 7800R3 provides customers with increases in performance to handle exponential traffic growth, network segmentation, telemetry and cybersecurity challenges," said Anshul Sadana, Chief Operating Officer of Arista Networks.
Secure Proven Platforms
The 7800R3 Series is initially available in 4 and 8 slot modular chassis, with up to 576 ports of 400G or 460Tbps of capacity for the largest scale environments, with a choice of both 100G and 400G modules with optional MACsec for secure interconnect across datacenters.
The 7500R3, the latest generation of the award-winning 7500 Series, offers compelling improvements with 400G and 100G line card options while protecting customer investments. The latest innovations include Inband Network Telemetry (INT), IPFIX and Network Address Translation (NAT) along with increased capacity and scale while improving power efficiency.
The 7280R3 is the third generation of fixed systems using the R-Series architecture with 3X higher performance, 2X the scale and power efficiency, supporting 400G for environments where space and power are at a premium.
