Arista Debuts Data Center Switches for 25/50/100GbE

Arista Networks introduced its new line-up of data center switches for 25/50/100GbE switching.

The new family of Arista 7060X, 7260X and 7320X fixed-leaf and modular-spline form factor switches offers a range of options at 1GbE to 100GbE along with Arista EOS (extensible operating system) features such as Smart System Upgrade with hitless software upgrades, hitless speed change and network rollback.  Highlights:

  • 7060CX-32S - offers multi-speed 10/25/40/50/100GbE on all 32 ports in a 1RU leaf switch along with flexible L2 and L3 features and wirespeed performance.
  • 7260QX-64 - 64 ports of 40GbE in a compact 2RU system with low latency and power per port of under 5W per port.
  • 7260CX-64 - delivers a new standard for 100GbE port density within a fixed form factor chassis offering 64 line rate 100GbE interfaces in 2RU.
  • 7320X-32C - brings high density 40/100GbE connectivity options to the 7320X series of modular switches with 32 ports of 100GbE for a total of 256 ports of 100GbE per system. Each port can support a choice of 100GbE, 40GbE, 2x50GbE, 4x 10GbE or 4x 25GbE.

New 7050X fixed switch models are the 7050SX-72Q and 7050TX-72Q that offers a flexible combination of 48 10GbE ports with 6 QSFP+ 40GbE ports that are both power efficient and low latency with support for wire speed VXLAN routing.

Significant, Arista said pricing for the 7060X and 7260X start at under $1000 per 100GbE port.

Arista also announced availability of new optics at both 40G and 100G including an industry compatible 40GbE BiDi transceiver that operates over multi-mode fiber and a choice of cost effective solutions for 100GbE connections for server to leaf and leaf to spine connections including Active Optical Cables, 100GBASE-SR4 and 25GbE breakout cables.


As part of the new product launch, Arista hosted an event with key ecosystem partners at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). The event concluded with the closing bell ceremony. http://www.arista.com
