Simple, Scalable, Secure

Wi-Fi is the primary access mechanism for devices in enterprise networks, and the number of devices continues to expand along with the amount of data being transferred. Ensuring devices have seamless connectivity and smooth application experience is critical and requires the Wi-Fi network to perform flawlessly. Arista’s Cognitive Wi-Fi provides reliable connectivity, automatically optimizes connections as network conditions change and delivers actionable intelligence to network administrators.

Unmatched Visibility

Arista Wi-Fi provides network administrators full visibility of the entire wireless network through a single graphical network topology map. Every state of client connectivity is tracked to provide rich telemetry data that allows admins to understand the root cause of any issues. Multi-function radios in access points and the patented AI/ML driven App Quality of Experience engine provides auto root cause analysis and auto remediation while also providing a whole new level of visibility into user experience. As networks scale up with more access points, this visibility is crucial to efficiently manage and maintain the network.

Centralized Management with CloudVision CUE

Wi-Fi access points are centrally managed without the need for additional hardware appliances. Access points directly connect to CloudVision CUE, Arista’s centralized cloud management solution for wireless access points, that offers seamless scalability as your network expands.

CloudVision CUE is at the core of Arista’s cloud-native approach to enterprise Wi-Fi networks. It enables centralized management of wireless access points (APs) simplifying policy management and provisioning of Wi-Fi networks. At the network edge, APs are equipped with distributed algorithms to handle control plane functions locally. This decoupling of management and control planes, along with a flexible data plane that allows wireless access points to provide customizable traffic redirection at the network's edge, results in a more robust network, without single points of failure. Coupled with zero-touch provisioning, CloudVision CUE enables seamless scaling of the network from a few to 100,000s of APs.

Virtually unlimited and elastic availability of storage and compute resources eliminates artificial boundaries inherent in controller-based WLAN architectures. Many innovative and previously unforeseen applications in big data analytics, machine learning and cognitive computing are now possible with Arista Wi-Fi.

Cognitive Management Plane

The Arista Wi-Fi cognitive management plane simplifies configuration and troubleshooting while delivering rich telemetry information to network administrators. Arista leverages the power of the cloud and the massive data sets available across the user base to continuously perform supervised and unsupervised learning to apply AI concepts. Inference models are created to arrive quickly at the root cause of any poor experience and proactively provides this information along with suggested remediation to provide the smallest mean time to resolution.

Key Wi-Fi Features

Network Baselining Baselines network behavior and automatically detects and highlights anomalies, using ML algorithms.
Root Cause Analysis Engine Automatically detects and classifies Wi-Fi clients’ connection failures and pinpoints the root cause in real-time.
Single Client Inferencing Identifies clients facing poor QoE, based on RF, network and application KPIs and performs root cause analysis as well as providing remediation recommendations for specific clients.
Automatic Packet Capture Proactively captures packet traces to help diagnose problems; traces are stored alongside related failures or symptoms to simplify troubleshooting later.
Client Emulation and Network Profiling Takes advantage of the multi-function radio, present in most Arista Wi-Fi APs, turning it into a client to run a wide variety of tests and proactively identify problems before users do.

The Cognitive Management Plane is driven by Arista’s NetDB, a state-based, cloud-hosted, network-wide database that collects real-time data streamed from wired and wireless devices for cognitive analytics. CloudVision CUE’s capabilities can be extended further by integration with 3rd party applications using OpenConfig via Webhooks and Arista’s ReST API framework.

Wireless Intrusion Prevention

With a multi-function radio acting as a wireless intrusion prevention (WIPS) sensor, wireless threats are detected and blocked almost instantly in your network. CloudVision CUE works with the APs, which are powered by patented techniques such as Marker PacketsTM, to enable surgical over-the-air intrusion prevention, automatically and accurately creating alerts and automatically classifying wireless threats. CloudVision CUE uses behavior based detection of threats; rather than a signature based approach; to enable zero day protection without chasing exploits, tools and their signatures.
