Arista AWE-7200R Series Advantages:

  • Enterprise Class Routing Systems: Aggregation, WAN Edge, Transit Hub, and Cloud Edge routing platforms designed for dual-router and carrier diverse deployments in critical sites, campus, and data centers as well as in carrier-neutral and cloud adjacent transit hubs.
  • EOS Based: Consistent OS capabilities across switching and routing platforms.
  • Dual Modality: Routers can operate in either traditional WAN mode or  CloudVision Pathfinder mode, which delivers a more managed operator experience by implementing SD-WAN features via open standards.
  • Open Standards: when deployed via CloudVision Pathfinder, all configurations are procedurally rendered using a reduced complexity protocol stack while delivering full configuration transparency.
  • Modular Network Interface Expansion: Increase available ports on the device through these expansion slots supporting 1GbE RJ45 and SFP+, 25GbE (SFP28), and 100GbE (QSFP28)
  • Zero Touch Provisioning: Secure remote hands and installation in ZTP or non-ZTP environments.
