The Arista 7048 switch offers unmatched performance for high-density data center deployments. With 48 100/1000BASE-T and four 1/10GbE SFP+ ports, the switch delivers a non-blocking design with 40 Gbps of uplink bandwidth. The 7048 switch forwards at layer 2/3/4 with low latency at wire speed. Redundant power and cooling options along with a robust software architecture provide the foundation for a data center class product. The switch comes with both front-to-back and back- to-front airflow options for energy efficiency. All SFP+ ports accommodate a full range of 10GbE twinax copper cables and optical 1/10GbE transceivers. With Arista EOS, advanced monitoring and provisioning capabilities such as Zero Touch Provisioning, VMTracer and Linux based tools can be run natively on the switch.
