SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) today introduced new software and hardware for the Arista R-Series platforms, accelerating cloud transformation for customers deploying routing technology. Based on merchant silicon, that is twice the density and half the power of custom routing silicon, the latest R-Series platforms deliver more than 150 Tbps of capacity for switching and routing applications with cloud-driven Arista EOS software technologies including Arista FlexRoute and AlgoMatch.

"Working together with Arista has helped Netnod to develop a flexible, future-proof infrastructure that accommodates significant increases in capacity at the same time as reducing the cost per terabit compared with traditional routing platforms,” said Lars Michael Jogbäck CEO at Netnod. “Arista 7500R/7280R and EOS support our next-generation platform as we develop industry-leading IX services and offer Netnod customers more connection options than ever before.”

With the 2016 introduction of the Arista 7280R Universal Leaf and 7500R Universal Spine platforms, the first phase of cloud transformation is underway across multiple routing use cases across cloud providers, Content Delivery Networks (CDN) and Internet service providers. Arista is focused on the next phase of this transformation with the 7500R2 line cards for the 7500R systems and the 7280R2 fixed platforms, delivering significant enhancements in scale, telemetry, security and routing.

“We selected Arista EOS and the 7500R2 as a part of our new edge architecture, which will become the foundation for our hyper-scale security platform. This was based on the combination of deep telemetry, dense 100G, and large routing scale, while providing stability and extensibility with Arista EOS,” said Wen Temitim, Chief Network Scientist at StackPath.

Cloud network designs require both scaling up and scaling out. The FlexRoute enhancements on the 7500R2 line cards and the 7280R2 fixed platforms introduce support for over 2 million routes in hardware, equivalent to more than three copies of the Internet routing table. While the Internet routing table continues to grow and native IPv6 networks increase, customers can invest in a routing platform that can handle the Internet table scale both for today and the future.

In addition, the newest member of the 7500R Series, the 7516, increases port scale, with up to 576 ports of line rate 100G Ethernet. These scale up improvements provide the building blocks for scale-out network designs, including spine capacity of an industry leading 15 Petabits per second.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
