Arista Demonstrates Cloud-Grade Routing at MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress 2018


Modern Routing Protocols in Action

SANTA CLARA, Calif.,– April 10th, 2018 — Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) today announced that the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC) has successfully verified the interoperability of key Arista EOS® (Extensible Operating System) routing capabilities at the MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress 2018 interoperability showcase. Arista participated in several interoperability tests designed and exercised by EANTC targeting Ethernet VPN (EVPN) technology for VxLAN and MPLS and MPLS Segment Routing (ISIS and BGP), spanning use cases across datacenter, Wide Area Network (WAN) and Core network deployments.

Carsten Rossenhoevel, Co-founder and Managing Director of EANTC, said, “In just the second year that Arista has been part of our public interoperability event, Arista has displayed EVPN, MPLS, Segment Routing capabilities comprehensively with impressive results. We look forward to continuing to work with Arista to promote industry standards-based interoperable solutions.”

By participating in EANTC multi-vendor tests, targeting modern technologies for IP, MPLS, and VxLAN networks, Arista Networks is ensuring its continued commitment to open standards. Customers can leverage Arista EOS routing capabilities along with EOS automation, programmability and rich telemetry to accelerate the transition to Cloud-Grade Routing.

“At BIT we are passionate about technology and delivering the best quality of service to our customers. We chose Arista EVPN for our infrastructure because it allows us to scale our datacenter network to current and future needs”, said Teun Vink, Network Manager at BIT BV. BIT uses EVPN to deliver a scalable network that is 100% loop free, optimally uses the available links and continues to support all the traditional protocols (e.g. STP). In addition, the strengths of integration with Open Source tooling in EOS, with unmodified Linux on the switch, full support of DevOps, streaming telemetry and API’s for tooling to leverage were a huge plus for the deployment.

A whitepaper detailing all the tests and results can be obtained from EANTC at http://www.eantc.de/showcases/. Arista will be demonstrating all of these routing technologies along with Arista cloud solutions such as CloudVision® for Automation, Analytics, Agility with OpenConfig / NETCONF and Any Cloud Platform at the MPLS+SDN+NFV World Congress 2018 in Paris from April 10th through 13th, 2018 (Booth #210).
