Modular Ethernet Switches

Increased adoption of 10GbE servers and applications requiring higher bandwidth is driving rapid adoption of 10 and 40GbE switching. The Arista 7300 Series Data Center Switch supports high-density line cards with wire speed L2/3/4 performance. This gives a flexible combination of 100M, 1G, 10G and 40G switching to design large leaf and spine networks for scale-out of east-west traffic patterns with low latency and power efficiency. With reversible front-to-rear airflow, redundant and hot swappable supervisor, power, fabric and cooling modules, the 7300 is ideal for your data centers.

  • A flexible combination of 100M, 1G, 10G and 40G switching.

Features

Switching Performance for Large Leaf and Spine Networks

The Arista 7300 Series Data Center Switch is designed around an internal clos with line cards and fabric modules fully interconnected via vertical fabric modules for over 40 Tbps of capacity.

Dual redundant supervisor modules provide centralized control plane and management functionality.

The 7300 supports up to 30 billion packets per second and up to 2.56 Terabits per second per line card.

Based on configuration, the 7300 has 2,048 wire-speed 10GbE ports or 512 wire-speed 40GbE ports. In cut-through mode, the 7300 switches forward packets with a latency of less than 2usec.

The flexibility of the L2 and L3 multi-path design options combined with support for open standards, provides greater flexibility, scalability and network wide virtualization.

High Hardware Availability and Energy Efficiency

The Arista 7300 Series Data Center Switch has multiple redundancies including N+N Grid redundant power system, 1+1 supervisor redundancy, redundant fabric modules, and N+1 fan module redundancy.

The 7300 Series is energy efficient with typical power consumption of under 3 Watts per 10GbE port for lower total cost of ownership.

With front-to-rear airflow, redundant and hot swappable supervisor, power, fabric and cooling modules the system is purpose built for your data centers.
