Product Review

The Arista DCS-7508E-FM offers a high port density, supporting up to 1,152 10GbE ports, 288 40GbE ports, and 96 100GbE ports, catering to large data centers and high-demand environments. However, its significant weight at 300 pounds (136 kg) when fully configured and large physical dimensions may pose challenges for space-constrained installations. It operates efficiently within a broad range of environmental conditions and offers redundancy with 2 to 4 power circuits, though its power consumption can reach up to 195W, necessitating careful planning for energy management.


The Arista DCS-7508E-FM is a high-capacity, scalable, and efficient networking solution designed to meet the needs of data centers and high-demand networking environments. With its impressive hardware specifications, this model stands out for its capacity to support large-scale operations and ensure reliable performance under various conditions. At the core of its specifications, the DCS-7508E-FM has a physical stature that demands attention. It occupies 11U of rack space with dimensions of 485 mm in height, 483 mm in width, and 762 mm in depth, making it a significant piece of hardware in any data center. The chassis alone weighs 43.1 kg, but when fully configured with all necessary components, the system's weight reaches 136 kg. This solid construction is designed to house a multitude of critical components securely. Powering the device requires 200/240 VAC at 50 or 60 Hz, with input power circuits ranging from two to four, allowing for redundancy and reliability in power supply. It operates efficiently within an ambient temperature range of 0° to 40° C and can be stored safely at the same temperature range. Its design also accommodates an environment with relative humidity levels between 5 to 90% and at altitudes up to 3,000 meters without compromising its performance. Cooling is managed by an integrated fan module, ensuring that the system maintains optimal temperatures even under maximum load, with a cooling capacity of up to 6600 W. This is crucial for maintaining performance stability and prolonging the life span of the device. In terms of connectivity and expansion, the DCS-7508E-FM is equipped with: - Two supervisor slots, - Eight line card slots, - Six fabric module slots, and - Four power supply slots. This configuration supports a diverse range of network architectures and provides flexibility for expansion as network demands grow. The device boasts an impressive port density, capable of accommodating up to 1,152 10GbE ports, 288 40GbE ports, or 96 100GbE ports. This high port density makes it an ideal solution for environments where space and power are at a premium but demand for high-speed connectivity is ever-growing. Each line card measures 2.5 x 14 x 10.25 inches and weighs 10 lb, with a typical power consumption of 155W, reaching up to 195W at maximum. This indicates the device's efficiency in managing power relative to its high performance and port density. Key highlights include: -
  • Maximum cooling efficiency with a 6600 W capacity.
  • -
  • Flexible power input with 2 to 4 circuits at 200/240 VAC.
  • -
  • High port density supporting up to 1,152 10GbE ports.
  • The Arista DCS-7508E-FM combines these specifications into a powerful, efficient, and scalable networking solution, making it an ideal choice for data centers and high-demand environments looking for reliability and high-capacity network operations.
