Product Review

The Arista DCS-7508R-BND offers significant scalability and flexibility, supporting up to 1,152 ports for both 10GbE and 25GbE, with a maximum throughput of 75Tbps/34.5Bpps, catering to high-density networking environments. However, the system's considerable size and weight (400 lbs when fully assembled) may pose challenges for space-constrained installations. Additionally, the provision of both AC and DC power options along with redundancy (5+1) enhances its reliability for critical network infrastructure deployments.


The Arista DCS-7508R-BND is a comprehensive networking solution designed for efficiency and scalability. This product features the 7508N chassis, which is equipped with six 3kW power supplies, six fabric modules (FM-R), and one Supervisor Module 2 (Sup2), all housed in an 8-slot, 13 rack unit (RU) chassis. This configuration supports up to eight line cards, allowing for considerable expansion and flexibility in network design. One of the key attributes of the DCS-7508R-BND is its power options; it can operate on either AC or DC power sources. This versatility ensures compatibility with various data center power infrastructures. The system is designed with a redundancy configuration of 5+1, enhancing its reliability and uptime by providing a backup in the event of a power supply failure. The physical dimensions of the chassis are 22.75 inches in height, 19 inches in width, and 31.3 inches in depth, which translates to 57.8x 48.3 x 79.5cm, fitting into a 13RU space in a rack. When empty, the chassis weighs 95 lbs (43.1 kg), but when fully equipped, the system's weight increases to approximately 400 lbs (182 kg). The hardware’s typical power consumption is 224W, with a maximum of 298W, indicating its energy efficiency. In terms of cooling, the DCS-7508R-BND includes an integrated fan module, ensuring that the system operates within optimal temperature ranges even under full load. The chassis also provides six slots for fabric modules and eight for power supplies, allowing for considerable customization and scalability. The networking capabilities of the Arista DCS-7508R-BND are impressive, offering a range of port densities and throughput options: - Maximum 10GbE Density: 1,152 Ports - Maximum 25GbE Density: 1,152 Ports - Maximum 40GbE Density: 288 Ports - Maximum 50GbE Density: 576 Ports - Maximum 100GbE Density: 288 Ports This flexibility allows the system to support various networking requirements, from high-density 10GbE and 25GbE deployments to more specialized 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE applications. The maximum throughput of the system reaches 75Tbps, with a packet processing capacity of 34.5 billion packets per second (Bpps), ensuring that the DCS-7508R-BND can handle even the most demanding data center environments. Key features include:
  • Integrated Fan Module for optimal cooling.
  • Support for up to 8 line cards, providing scalability.
  • Redundancy configuration of 5+1 for enhanced reliability.
In summary, the Arista DCS-7508R-BND is engineered for high performance, scalability, and reliability, making it suitable for demanding network environments. Its comprehensive set of features and options ensures that it can be customized to meet the specific needs of any data center, supporting a wide range of applications and workloads.
