Arista 5000 Series Advantages:

  • Enterprise Class Routing Systems: Aggregation, WAN Edge, Transit Hub, and Cloud Edge routing platforms that are designed for dual-router and carrier diverse deployments in critical sites, campus, and data center 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 traditional WAN mode and CloudVision Pathfinder mode which delivers a more managed operator experience delivering SD-WAN features via open standards implementation.
  • 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)
  • Bluetooth Enabled: Mobile application supported smart-hands for secure remote hands and installation in ZTP or Non-ZTP environments.
