Beat the status quo with Arista's campus networking solutions

March 12, 2024

In today's geographically dispersed working environment, businesses today are facing challenges that they never had to face before... such as managing hybrid and remote workers, keeping up with the fast pace of evolving technologies, and making their network seamless, easy to use, and hacker-proof. They are not interested in "scheduled downtime" for upgrades and want to avoid unplanned outages and cyber threats at all costs. So, it is imperative that they have the right tools to save time, avoid frustration, and secure and grow their network. 

Fortunately, Arista Networks and their Cognitive Campus solution offers industry-leading, data-driven, client-to-cloud networking for campus environments of all sizes. It is designed to offer consistent, unified management across the campus for wired and wireless networks, as well as integrate security, identity access control, and proactive network assurance. 

With Arista's portfolio of campus networking products, your customer will enjoy all the AI-powered tools to manage, monitor, and troubleshoot their entire network remotely — all from one pane of glass. 

The three pillars of Arista's Cognitive Campus

  1. Best-in-class/highly available network: Arista applies proactive principles to design a scalable and highly available network that virtually eliminates planned and unplanned downtime. A distributed Wi-Fi control plane ensures there are no single points of failure to disrupt the wireless network. Network designs are "future-proofed" and provide the capability to scale up or down a network as needed without sacrificing performance or reliability. 
  2. Zero-touch operations: From Day 0 to Day N, you'll have the ability to deploy appliances remotely and get new sites up and running in no time. Operating efficiencies are realized immediately with predictive insights that enable a hands-off network ops model. Say goodbye to the nightmares of upgrading. Arista wireless and wired upgrades are a breeze with no impact to end-users. 
  3. Zero trust network security: Implementing the principles of zero trust networking requires a holistic approach. Arista provides advanced features like segmentation, identity management, and continuous monitoring to reduce your customers' network attack surface and enhance its resilience against cyber threats.
