Modular Ethernet Switches

Specifications

Technical Specifications

Differentiator

  • Modular switches delivering over 50Tbps of switching with up to 256 wire speed 100GbE ports. Scalable high performance for software-defined cloud networking supporting comprehensive features for network monitoring, precision timing and network virtualization. All Arista switches run on the same Arista EOS modular switch operating system with a unique state sharing architecture that cleanly separates switch state from protocol processing and application logic.
