Product Review

The Arista DCS-7508N-CH offers high-density connectivity options, supporting up to 1,152 10GbE or 25GbE ports, and up to 288 100GbE ports, catering to demanding data center requirements. However, its substantial weight of 400 lbs for the chassis alone and a total system weight of 628 lbs may pose challenges for installation and require significant rack space, occupying 13RU or 18RU depending on configuration. Additionally, with a maximum power consumption of 11,000W, it necessitates careful consideration of power infrastructure and cooling within the data center environment.


The Arista DCS-7508N-CH is a high-performance, scalable chassis designed to meet the demands of modern data centers and high-density networking environments. This product features two supervisor slots, eight line card slots, and six fabric module slots. It is designed to accommodate either AC or DC power supplies, which are ordered separately, providing flexibility in power management. With a physical dimension of 22.75x19x31.3 inches for the 13RU configuration and 33.4 inches in height for the 18RU setup, the chassis is engineered to optimize space without compromising on performance. The chassis alone weighs 400 lbs, while a fully equipped system hits 628 lbs, underlining the robust construction and capacity of the unit. The networking capabilities of the Arista DCS-7508N-CH are impressive, supporting a wide range of Ethernet densities. This includes a maximum of 1,152 ports for both 10GbE and 25GbE configurations, 288 ports for 40GbE, 576 ports for 50GbE, and 288 ports for 100GbE. Such versatility ensures that the system can handle the diverse and growing needs of network infrastructures. The maximum throughput of the system reaches up to 75 Tbps with a packet forwarding rate of 34.5 billion packets per second (Bpps), showcasing its capability to manage vast amounts of data with efficiency. The max power consumption of the chassis is rated at 11,000W, indicative of its high-performance potential. Power specifications include a DC input voltage of -48/-60 V DC with a branch circuit protection of 100 A for DC configurations. For AC power configurations, the input voltage per circuit is 200-240 V with a 20 A branch circuit protection. This ensures safe and reliable operation across different power setups. The operational ambient temperature range is from 0° to 40°C, allowing the system to function optimally in a wide range of environmental conditions. For non-operational storage, the temperature tolerance extends from -40° to 70°C, with humidity levels from 5 to 90%, ensuring the system's integrity during storage and transport. Key hardware specifications include: -
  • Two supervisor slots for management and control
