Used Arista 7060X Series Switches

The Arista 7060X Series is made up of compact and flexible fixed-configuration devices that support a variety of different port configurations and Ethernet speeds.

Despite the fact these switches contain fixed ports, they all support multiple optical transceivers, which makes them more flexible than many other fixed-configuration switches.

We sell three Arista 7060X switches, including two Arista 7060X2 switches, which include an “-X2” in the model name. All three support up to 100G Ethernet, making them ideal for demanding networking environments. They are also all 1 rack unit (RU) in size, so they are extremely compact.

The biggest distinguishing factor is the port configuration on each device. Two of the three devices we sell include 32 QSFP28 ports and the other supports six. All three include multiple types of ports, such as QSFP28 and SFP+ as well as SFP28 and QSFP28, and most of those support multiple Ethernet speeds.

Notable additional features for the Arista 7060X Series include:

  • Maximum capacity of up to 6.4 Tbps
  • Supports 1G, 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G and 100G Ethernet
  • F/R and R/F airflow options
  • 450 nanosecond latency
  • Support Arista’s CloudVision to automate workflows

To learn more and to see detailed specifications, head to our Arista 7060X category page.

Pre-owned Arista 7160 Series Switches

Arista 7160 Series switches are ideal for data centers as well as large-scale enterprises. At only 1 rack unit (RU) in size, the models in this series offer excellent port density in an extremely compact design.

Data centers and enterprises are often looking to purchase Arista equipment in bulk — either to replace some damaged or outdated equipment or to expand existing network capabilities — and these switches are perfect for bulk orders as they’re compact, but they also all support Ethernet speeds of up to 100G.

We stock three Arista 7160 switches, and although all three support up to 100G Ethernet, they’re each designed with a more distinctive purpose in mind.

More specifically, one of the three models is designed primarily for 10G Ethernet, another model is designed primarily for 25G Ethernet and the third switch is designed almost solely for 100G Ethernet applications. However, all three switches support multiple Ethernet speeds. In fact, this series supports a wide range of ports, including SFP, SFP28 and QSFP28, offering plenty of deployment flexibility.

Notable additional features for the Arista 7160 Series include:

  • Maximum capacity of up to 6.4 Tbps
  • Supports 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G and 100G Ethernet
  • F/R and R/F airflow options
  • 2,000 nanosecond latency
  • Support Arista’s CloudVision to automate workflows

Learn more about these switches on our Arista 7160 Series category page.

Refurbished Arista 7170 Series Switches

The Arista 7170 Series is composed solely of 100G Ethernet switches. While both are designed to take up minimal space inside a hardware rack, having two models to choose from still gives you the ability to opt for size over port density, or the other way around. Whatever works best for your networking needs.

The two Arista 7170 models that are available at BrightStar Systems both support 100G Ethernet. The biggest difference between the two models is the port density. In the model measuring 2 rack units (RU), you essentially get double the number of 100G Ethernet ports. However, the other available model measures only 1 RU in size, making it an extremely compact option for small spaces.

Other than the port density, and the specifications — e.g. maximum capacity — that are affected by those respective densities, the two Arista 7170 models we sell are incredibly similar. And they all run on the same EOS software as the other models, making it easier to simplify your network administration.

Notable additional features for the Arista 7170 Series include:

  • Maximum capacity of up to 12.8 Tbps
  • Supports 1G, 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G and 100G Ethernet
  • F/R and R/F airflow options
  • 800 nanosecond latency
  • Support Arista’s CloudVision to automate workflows
