Solutions

Arista Networks
Arista Networks manufacturers high-density, OpenFlow-based fixed and modular 10/40/100 Gbps Ethernet switching solutions for large data center and computing environments. Designed around the company’s Extensible Operating System (EOS), the switches use software-defined cloud networking (SDN) to optimize application performance, and the end user experience, in demanding applications.

Arista and Aruba
Arista and Aruba have collaborated to ensure interoperability between Aruba’s wired and wireless edge access networks, and Arista’s 10/40 Gbps aggregation and backbone switches. Additionally, the integrated solution provides tailored SDN switching/routing flows with peer-to-peer BYOD endpoints. For example, by tunneling OpenFlow set-up services between an Aruba Mobility Controller running AirGroup and an Arista SDN switch, Apple Bonjour requests can automatically be directed to the closest AppleTV without manual intervention or high wireless bandwidth consumption typical of Bonjour messaging. The result is a terrific end user experience.

Brocade and Aruba
Aruba and Brocade have teamed to deliver standards-based, unified wired and wireless campus networks for secure mobility, BYOD, and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) applications. Unified management makes it easier for IT to support a common policy framework across the entire network, maximizing network uptime and speeding the resolution of issues to root cause. SDN support permits network administrators to craft wired and wireless traffic forwarding policies to optimize network paths, maximize available bandwidth, lower latency, reduce hop counts, and eliminate spanning trees. Using open standards eliminates vendor lock-in and achieves capital and operational cost efficiencies. The result: 28-46% lower total cost of ownership, 25% lower power consumption, and no cost stacking.
