Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET), has announced a new release of its Cognitive WiFi software that seamlessly delivers intelligent application identification, performance optimization, automated troubleshooting and location services, the company said.

This provides customers with an enhanced WiFi experience for critical video collaboration applications and the power of cloud-based AI for rapid problem resolution.

The enhanced CloudVision® WiFi offers real-time insight into the WiFi client journey, including the health of collaboration and video applications delivering optimal WiFi experiences through analytics and proactive remediation recommendations. Arista´s WiFi foundation is based on a modern and cloud-based approach unlike traditional controller-based WiFi legacy networks with overheads.

This provides an open standards-based solution for managing, monitoring and baselining WiFi infrastructure via streaming telemetry. OpenConfig WiFi is a programmatic alternative to proprietary ways. It enables cloud and network operators to implement dynamic, scalable and automated WiFi network infrastructure by adopting the software-defined-networking (SDN) principles of OpenConfig.

Arista Networks pioneered software-driven, cognitive cloud networking for large-scale datacenter and campus environments. Its products are supported worldwide directly and through partners.
