Arista Expands its Cognitive Campus with the Latest Generation Wi-Fi 6E Solution
New access point extends the benefits of Arista’s cognitive unified edge to meet enterprise IoT and collaborative applications requirements
SANTA CLARA, Calif.,--October 6, 2021--Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET), a leader in data-driven networking, announced today the expansion of its cognitive campus edge portfolio with a new Wi-Fi 6E access point. As a result, customers can take advantage of the greater capacity, higher bandwidth and lower latency of Wi-Fi 6E to support high definition video collaboration applications and IoT proliferation.
The C-360 wireless platform for next generation campus edge infrastructures is Arista’s cognitive unified edge solution with advanced AI/ML capabilities for understanding which devices are on the wired and wireless network, what they're doing, and whether they're properly segmented. Arista CloudVision® leverages the C-360’s built-in, application-aware telemetry to deliver the critical information necessary to provide the network operator with a consolidated view of endpoint inventory, device type, connection status, traffic patterns, and application quality of experience connected to both the wired and the wireless network.
“We are seeing a notable acceleration in users refreshing their Wi-Fi networks to accommodate the post-pandemic remote and in-office workforce. Video collaboration is the new “must-have,” triggering significant upgrades in both wireless and wired networks. Arista’s new C-360 Wi-Fi 6E access point is perfectly timed to address the bandwidth and latency-sensitive applications like video,” said Tam Dell'Oro, CEO and WLAN analyst of the Dell'Oro Group.
The C-360 delivers the Wi-Fi capacity required for Enterprises challenged with increasing requirements including IoT proliferation, video collaboration applications, and multimedia, including dual 10Gb ethernet ports with MACsec for secured connectivity. The C360 operates in the 2.4, 5 and 6 GHz frequency bands, supporting both legacy Wi-Fi infrastructure and Wi-Fi 6E enabled clients. The C-360 also includes a dedicated multi-function radio which, in addition to the regular spectrum scan for Radio Resource Management and Wireless Intrusion Detection, provides for over-the-air threat mitigation and active network assurance functions in all the three Wi-Fi bands (2.4, 5 and 6 GHz).
Arista’s new C-360 Wi-Fi 6E access point delivers the performance and low latency required for today’s video intensive applications and the capacity for the proliferating IoT requirements by leveraging the new 6 GHz spectrum available with Wi-Fi 6E. Deployed in conjunction with Arista’s Cognitive Wi-Fi, the C-360 provides end-to-end application visibility with the Application Quality of Experience dashboard, automated network troubleshooting, client visibility, and zero trust security with Wireless Intrusion Protection Services (WIPS), MACsec encryption and WPA3/OWE Wi-Fi security.
