  • Virtually No Jitter

7130 Connect Series Layer 1+ Switches

Arista’s 7130 Connect Series Layer 1+ switches are powerful network devices designed for ultra-low latency of just 4 nanoseconds. Available in 16, 48 or 96 port device options, they combine a multitude of network functionality on a single device:

  • Signal regeneration
  • Media conversion
  • Port mirroring
  • Telemetry
  • Dynamic patching/link management
  • Layer 1+ statistics on every link
All network devices are deterministic with virtually undetectable jitter as they neither buffer or queue data, hence utilizing 100% of available bandwidth. The 7130 Connect Series platform is packet-aware providing comprehensive packet statistics, signal quality monitoring including eye diagrams, and diagnostics. Packet replication provides the ability to sniff packets without affecting the data path.

Feature Description

Ultra-low Latency

Fan-out, tap, or patch with a latency of 4 ns, equivalent to a single meter of fibre or copper interconnect, and insignificant jitter.

Ethernet Media Conversion

Reduce costs by converting between different Ethernet media types. E.g. one end of a link can be 10G twinax and the other 10G-BASE-LR single-mode fber.


Save rack space and reduce complexity by leveraging dynamic patching, tapping, 1:N replication, telemetry, and comprehensive port statistics on a single device.

Flexible SFP/SFP+ Support

Make significant cost savings through the support of most SFP/SFP+ transceivers including DWDM and direct attached copper cables; boosted by high-performance signal recovery and regeneration.


Replace taps to monitor or share feeds such as market-data with full signal regeneration and no additional overhead.

Packet Statistics

Leverage advanced monitoring and capture high-level packet statistics across all ports. Receive detailed switch statistics via SNMP or CLI and obtain tcpdump and LLDP on every port.

64-bit x86 Management Processor and MOS

Leverage an open standards platform and MOS operating system to provide user extensible solutions.

Remote Configuration

Change mappings between ports at any time via a number of standard APIs with no physical reconfiguration required. Wire-once to reduce visits to the data center and save on remote hands.

Why use Arista 7130 L1+ switching devices?

  • Leverage the lowest latency network devices on the market
  • Troubleshoot and manage your network by receiving packet statistics and monitoring across all ports
  • Save cost through remote patching, fexible SFP/SFP+ support and media conversion
  • Simplify your network architecture by replacing a rack loaded with separate devices

MOS Operating System

MOS provides a core set of features that are common across the 7130 platform. It is based on Linux and provides a command line and web interface as well as support for other management protocols. MOS provides a standard, mature and powerful platform with the commands, tools and packages such as syslog, net-snmp, daemons, RPMs, Bash, Python, authentication, and security.
400Gbe Low Latency Network Switches
7130 Connect Series Layer 1+ device

MOS has a number of tools and features including:

  • Command-line interface (CLI), web user interface & JSON-RPC API via HTTP/HTTPS
  • Integrated telemetry via the InfuxData TICK Stack (Telegraf, InfuxDB, Chronograf and Kapacitor)
  • Application monitoring e.g. the Layer 1 switch or telemetry
  • SNMP support including traps on environmental, authentication, link state, memory, disk, load
  • Tcpdump on any interface for diagnostics
