Arista's AlgoMatch Targets Advanced Network Enforcement

Arista Networks introduced an advanced network enforcement mechanism for providing customers with more flexible and scalable access control, telemetry and secure cloud networking.

Arista AlgoMatch combines general purpose memory technology with advanced software algorithms. The company said its AlgoMatch innovation provides more scale, performance and efficiency compared to TCAMs (Ternary Content Addressable Memories) commonly used in traditional silicon chipset architecture. AlgoMatch provides a packet matching algorithm that enables flow matching for access control, policy and visibility. Benefits include a high performance network policy engine with increased functionality and scale delivered in a cost and power efficient manner.


The company also introduced its new Arista 7160 Series 25/100GbE programmable platforms, including three models, all featuring 25/100GbE ports. The new platform delivers operational consistency and automated efficiency through the same common Arista EOS (Extensible Operating System) and CloudVision software.

The 7160 Series is available in three models:

  • 7160-32CQ - 32 x 100GbE, 1RU, or 128 x 25GbE with 6.4Tbps of performance
  • 7160-48YC6 - 48 x 25GbE, 6 x 100GbE with 3.6Tbps of performance
  • 7160-48TC6 - 48 x 10GbE BASE-T, 6 x 100GbE and 2.16Tbps of performance

“25GbE offers a 2.5X performance improvement over 10GbE at a significant price-per-gigabit discount while using the same cabling infrastructure,” said Seamus Crehan, president of Crehan Research. “Unrelenting traffic growth, large scale cloud adoption and the recent release of the IEEE standard are already starting to drive the demand for server networking upgrades to speeds of 25, 50 and 100GbE where we expect combined shipments to surpass two million ports by 2017. This, in-turn, is fueling the strong demand for next generation 25GbE and 100GbE switches.”

AlgoMatch will ship on the Arista 7160 Series in Q1 2017.
