This guide was produced to assist Data Center managers to design, install, and implement a fiber optic cabling system for Arista Network Switches. Due to the various line card configurations available and the different physical interfaces of 10/40/100G – the network configurations can be challenging and complicated.
Paul Shultz, Engineering Product Manager at Opticonx reflects on the necessity of this guide, “This guide was needed to assist Data Center personnel throughout the process of planning, designing, and implementing a structured fiber optic cabling system for Arista Networks switches.
The guide provides detailed diagrams for a variety of different cabling configurations. Exploded views of each configuration provide detailed specifications, system components, and port mapping diagrams for the wide variety of Spline to Leaf combinations”.
Brian Keane, Vice President of Marketing noted, “The diagrams are extremely helpful in understanding fiber port mapping when connecting 40 (QSFP+) and 100G (24F MTP) interfaces to 10G interfaces (SFP+). The goal is that data center personnel will experience a true “plug and play” cabling system when deploying Arista Network switches.
