Arista 7500E Series Introduction

Combining high density 10/40 and 100GbE with low latency and wire speed performance the Arista 7500E Series Network Switches are designed for large virtualized data centers, cloud networks and mission critical environments. A deep buffer VoQ architecture and compact design deliver a highly scalable and power efficient system that scales to 1,152 ports of 10GbE or 288 ports of 40GbE and support for 96 ports of wire-speed 100GbE. The flexible 100G port options provide single mode or multi mode capabilities up to 10km and 10G distances up to 80km.

With a choice of a 4 slot and 8 slot system the 7500E series deliver scalable L2 and L3 resources with advanced features for network monitoring, precision timing and network virtualization to deliver flexible and deterministic network performance for the most demanding data center networks.

With front-to-rear airflow, redundant and hot swappable supervisor, power, fabric and cooling modules the system is purpose built for high availability and continuous operations.

7500E Advantages

  • Support for over 1,000 10Gb Ethernet ports - 1,152 x 10G, 288 x 40G and 96 x 100G Ethernet interfaces
  • Seamless investment protection with the first generation 7500 Series
  • Unique monitoring and provisioning features – LANZ, DANZ, AEM, IEEE 1588 PTP, ZTP, VM Tracer, VXLAN, and eAPI
  • Embedded 100G optical modules enable a high density multi-speed capability with flexible support for 10G, 40G and 100G on a single interface to support mixed modes and investment protection during migration from 10G to 100G
  • Dense 10/40/100G modules with removable transceivers for flexible short and long reach connectivity options supporting a full range of IEEE interfaces and cost effective options including copper and optical cables.
  • Comprehensive L2 and L3 feature set for open multi-vendor networks with no proprietary lock-in
  • Balanced L2 and L3 table resources allow deployment flexibility in both large L2 and L3 environments with any workload suitability
  • Network–wide virtualization platform for next generation cloud bursting with wire-speed VXLAN hardware-based Tunnel Endpoint (VTEP) termination

Arista EOS

Arista EOS is a modular switch operating system with a unique state sharing architecture that cleanly separates switch state from protocol processing and application logic. Built on top of a standard Linux kernel, all EOS processes run in their own protected memory space and exchange state through an in-memory database. This multi-process state sharing architecture provides the foundation for in-service-software updates and self-healing resiliency.

7500E Series Systems

Arista 7500E Series deliver powerful EOS innovations for advanced traffic control, performance monitoring and virtualization features in addition to L2 and L3 multi-pathing scalability that improve the agility of modern high performance environments, with solutions for data monitoring, precise timing and next-generation virtualization.
