Arista Networks Releases First Fruits of Metamako Acquisition

Arista Networks has released the first fruits of its acquisition of Metamako in September 2018. The Arista 7130L Series, a next generation ultra-low latency, high-precision network application platform with deterministic 5 nanosecond switching and virtually undetectable jitter, rebrands former Metamako field programmable gate array (FPGA) switches. It also consolidates and advances network applications MetaMux, which enables lower latency data aggregation and is ideal for connecting electronic trading platforms directly to exchanges, and MetaWatch, which can be used to tap and aggregate time-stamped packets for data analysis or compliance.

In development of the Arista 7130L Series platform, MetaMux has gained a performance boost and can now perform data aggregation in average of 39 nanoseconds. The MetaWatch application now provides timestamping at sub-nanosecond accuracy. This granularity enhances capture, in-depth monitoring, and network analytics for demanding applications.

Nicholas Ciarleglio, a systems engineer at Arista, says one of the key reasons Arista acquired Metamako was to extend the 7130 platform’s application flexibility and make it more suitable to specialised network functions. Martin Hull, associate vice president of systems engineering and platforms at Arista, adds: “These products combine ultra-low latency switching with the latest generation of highly programmable FPGAs and proven Arista network applications to address demand for increased configurability in the network while delivering the lowest possible latencies.”
