Likelihood to Recommend

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.

It is suited for any company, small or large, who needs a cellular solution for failover and even as their primary connection to the internet.

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.

  • The device is a nice compact unit, with great reception in all areas of Chicago.
  • Set up and configuration was very easy.
  • The Netcloud Management portal service is a must! It allows me to manage all of our Cradelpoint from a management console.

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.

I have not used a cellular router before this, so I can't compare.
I am however familiar with Cradlepoint as designing components for Emergency Responders to keep them connected and online while dispatched. That was a deciding factor for us. We wanted something heavy duty and reliable.

Return on Investment

Arista 7000 series

  • The Arista 7000 series met or exceed our data center switching and routing needs.
  • It provided a more cost effective alternative to other products we were considering.
  • Implementation was quick and easy due to the simple standards-based configuration.

  • We needed a second internet carrier, and this device provided it without the heavy cost. You pay a small monthly fee, and whatever data you use. On average, this solution costs us $750.00 per year, compared to the monthly cost of a carrier like Comcast which ranges from $250-350 per month, which could add up to $4,200 per year for standby that may never get used.
  • Turnaround time for deployment was a couple of hours.
  • Net cloud management portal gives you centralized access to all of your devices for managing.
  • The additional network LAN port is available so that you can add the device to your network monitor, such as solar winds.
