The Arista 7280R Series of fixed systems, including the 7280R, 7280RA, 7280R2, 7280R2A and the 7280R2K, are key components of the Arista 7000 Series portfolio of data center switches. The Arista 7280R Series are purpose built 10/25/40/100GbE systems built for the highest performance environments, and to meet the needs of the largest scale data centers and service providers They deliver scalable L2 and L3 resources and high density with advanced features for network monitoring, precision timing and network virtualization to deliver scalable and deterministic network performance while simplifying designs and reducing Opex. The 7280R capabilities address the requirements for modern networking and rich multi-media content delivery requiring a lossless forwarding solution in a compact and energy efficient form factor.
The 7280R can be deployed in a wide range of open networking solutions including large scale layer 2 and layer 3 cloud designs, overlay networks, virtualized or traditional enterprise data center networks. Deep packet buffers and large routing tables allow for internet peering, interconnect and Inter-DC networking. The broad range of interfaces and density choice provides deployment flexibility.
