Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) today announced continued expansion in
cloud-grade routing with the latest Arista
EOS ® (Extensible Operating System) and CloudVision
® software. Arista EOS version 4.20 delivers new routing and
management software capabilities, helping customers evolve to modern,
software-driven routing principles.
Arista is driving down operational and capital costs with modern routing
and cloud automation, enabling architectural transformations across
cloud, content delivery, Internet exchange and service provider network
function virtualization (NFV) routing use-cases, including
next-generation cable architectures.
Driving Routing Transformations
Massive scale and growth of services is effectively driving a
re-architecture of the Internet to support bandwidth-hungry consumers.
The traditional Internet, based on rigid, fixed-purpose routers,
disparate LAN-WAN interfaces, protocols and inconsistent operational
models are cumbersome and costly. Arista's cloud networking principles
from the datacenter are extending into these routing applications. The
ubiquity of IP + Ethernet networking, combined with programmable
software control, delivers compelling alternatives to legacy routers.
Arista is focused on addressing the routing transformations in cloud
networks, Internet exchange fabrics, and NFV transitions at the consumer
An example of the consumer edge transformation to NFV is cable access
networks. Arista is transforming routing in these networks to deliver
high-bandwidth integratd services with technology partner Harmonic,
the worldwide leader in video delivery technology and cable edge
virtualization. For cable access, operators are transitioning their
traditional headend to a more cost-effective and service-rich
virtualized Remote-PHY architecture. Offering a scale-out and
software-driven approach, Arista's EOS and R-series platforms are now
certified with Harmonic's (News - Alert) CableOS™ virtualized CCAP solution.
"Leveraging its expertise in IP and in developing software-based
technologies, Harmonic is leading the architectural shift to a
virtualized cable headend based on Ethernet and IP. By partnering with
Arista, our joint customers can utilize Arista's R-Series and
software-driven approach to migrate to more scalable and cost-effective
cable architectures," said Nimrod Ben-Natan, Senior Vice President and
General Manager, Cable Edge Business, Harmonic.
Building Flagship Routing with Arista EOS
With the latest Arista EOS 4.20 release, Arista supports the following
capabilities for the transition to cloud-grade routing:
The Arista EOS 4.20 release is available now as a single software train
across all of Arista's products.
