Network applications for Arista's 7130 FPGA-based devices use the flexible hardware within the 7130 platform to perform tasks that were previously impossible in a network switch. Arista's own applications as well as third party partner applications are installed and configured in the same way as other software extensions for MOS and EOS.

Customers or developers who have the capability, can take advantage of Arista's deep experience in FPGA application development, and use the Arista Development Kits to develop their own custom apps.

Arista 7130 Applications

Arista's 7130 applications simplify and transform network infrastructure, and are targeted for use cases including ultra-low latency exchange trading, accurate and lossless network visibility, and providing vendor or broker based shared services. They enable a complete lifecycle of packet replication, multiplexing, filtering, timestamping, aggregation and capture.
