- 48 x 10 Gigabit SFP+ + 6 x 40 Gigabit QSFP+
The Arista 7050X series are purpose-built 10/40 GbE data center switches in compact and energy-efficient form factors with wire speed Layer 3 features combined with low latency and advanced features for software-defined cloud networking. The 7050SX series allows customers to design large-leaf and spine networks to accommodate both east-west traffic patterns found in modern data centers, high-performance compute and big data environments. The 7050SX series delivers high-density 1/10G SFP+ based ports and 10/40G ports using QSFP+. or embedded optics with MXP multi-speed ports for higher density. The Arista 7050SX switches offer low latency from 550 ns in cut-through mode, and a shared packet buffer pool that is allocated dynamically to ports that are congested. In addition, the 7050SX series provides excellent power efficiency.
