Arista 7060 and 7260 Series


The Arista 7060X and 7260X Series are a range of 1RU and 2RU high performance 40GbE and 100GbE high density, fixed configuration, data center switches with wire speed layer 2 and layer 3 features, and advanced features for software driven cloud networking. The Arista 7060X and 7260X deliver a rich choice of interface speed and density allowing networks seamlessly evolve from 10GbE and 40GbE to 25GbE and 100GbE. With support for advanced EOS features these switches are ideal for traditional or fully virtualized data centers. Arista 7060CX2-32S provides support for IEEE 25GbE and supports a larger shared packet buffer pool of 22 MB with the same low latency of 450ns.

The 7060X and 7260X support a flexible combination of speeds including 10G, 25G, 40G and 100G in compact form factors that allows customers to design networks to accommodate the myriad different applications and east-west traffic patterns found in modern data centers whilst providing investment protection.
