Cognitive campus edge unifies wired and wireless

Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) has announced the next phase in its campus architecture, changing the way enterprises rebuild campus networks in the future, the company said.

Arista´s Cognitive Campus unifies wired and wireless campus networking, applying modern software-driven cloud principles. Arista Cognitive WiFiâ„¢ eliminates legacy WiFi controller bottlenecks to reduce operational costs with higher reliability through a cloud-based, cognitive model.

Traditional campus networks suffer from complex bottlenecks brought on by the myriad of platforms, operating systems, proprietary features and network management tools. Coupled with the explosive growth of IoT and endpoints as well as the requirement for workloads, users and devices to be connected anywhere, the operational costs of managing these complexities become prohibitive.

Arista CloudVision, built on the Cognitive Management Plane (CMP) engine, is a proven and powerful platform for turnkey orchestration, provisioning and telemetry. Born initially in the datacenter era, CloudVision now extends the same common operational model to the campus providing unified wired, wireless and datacenter management.

With the acquisition of Mojo Networks, Arista now integrates the wireless edge via the CloudVision platform.

Arista Networks pioneered software-driven, cognitive cloud networking for large-scale datacenter and campus environments. Additional information and resources can be found at www.arista.com.
