Arista 7000 series

Core and data center applications are the strengths of Arista products. The distribution layer is also a good fit. For the access layer, it would be more of a niche product.

Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches

The Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches are a good fit for access layer needs. Put them on the edge of your network and you will have what you need to connect a physical device to your network. I would not deploy them in places at the core of a network. They can be used in data centers as an edge connection device.

Pros

Arista 7000 series

  • The 7304's along side our core network design has provided 100% uptime during the 5 years of deployment.
  • The multi-chassis LAG has provided near 100% connectivity to the distribution and access switches.
  • Very low maintenance attention is needed.

Cons

Arista 7000 series

  • The 7304's lack a graceful non-intrusive upgrade method even though they are dual supervisor.
  • I would like to see more integration with Aruba's ClearPass and Airwave products.

Alternatives Considered

Arista 7000 series

I have used the Catalyst 6500 series in the past. From my point of view, the Arista surpasses the Catalyst on just about every front. Originally we were planning on implementing the Nexus 7000/7700 series switches for our core. Though a little more feature rich, it did not provide features we needed that the Arista did. The Nexus also was a confusing and complex platform to work with. Also, the Nexus was a significantly more expensive solution. Although very happy with the Arista switches we may evaluate the Aruba HPE 8400 chassis-based switches along with Arista switches in the future.

Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches

  • We use NFR so not really an impact. Being a Cisco shop we dont have any serious problems with ROI
  • Customers love Cisco Catalyst switches as they perform great and capable of all fulfilling all customer needs. A single switch can perform as router/switch/poe/trunks/multicast (For overhead paging. school bell system etc.)
  • With frequent IOS upgrades always ready to support day 1/ 0 day equipment. ROI impact is very positive.
