The Arista 7300 Series modular switches are part of the Arista portfolio of data center switches. The 7300 Series with 7300X Series line cards increase flexibility and scalability for data center switches supporting both leaf and spine and SplineTM applications for collapsed end of row and aggregation. The 7300X systems share a common architecture with the Arista 7050X and 7250X Series and offer a choice of two modular systems, a 4-slot and 8-slot that support advanced features for network monitoring, precision timing and network virtualization to deliver scalable high performance for software defined cloud networking.
Increased adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet servers and applications requiring higher bandwidth is driving rapid adoption of 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet switching. The 7300 Series support a choice of high density line cards in combination with wire speed layer 2/3/4 performance that provides a flexible combination of 100M, 1G, 10G and 40G switching to design large leaf and spine networks for scale-out of east-west traffic patterns with low latency and power efficiency.
