Proliferation of cloud architectures and principles are transforming the traditional routing landscape. New business models around Service Provider NFV, Cloud WAN, Content Edge and data center interconnect (DCI) are disrupting the traditional approaches to networking.

Arista's Routing solution applies the cloud networking principles of "scale-out, simplify, software-driven networking" beyond the data center to routing use-cases. These solutions are based on Arista’s 7280R Universal Leaf and 7500R Universal Spine platforms, powered by Arista EOS® and CloudVision®. Customers can leverage these platforms for roles that require high performance Routing, combined with high port density and deep buffers, integrated DWDM with wirespeed MACSec encryption and cloud automation, which traditional Routers are unable to offer. With the Arista FlexRoute™ engine in Arista's R-series portfolio, customers can now architect, transform and modernize their Routing layer for different applications. Additionally, with the advanced telemetry solutions along with security at scale, delivered with Arista AlgoMatch, customers can avail highest visibility and security for their networks.
