Each QSFP+ supports wire speed 40GbE and can also operate as four independent 10GbE ports to provide a total of 64 10GbE ports. The Arista 7050Q offers latency of 800 ns in cut-through mode, and a shared 9 MB packet buffer pool that is allocated dynamically to ports that are congested. With typical power consumption of less than 3 watts per 10G port, the 7050Q 40G switches provide industry leading power efficiency for the data center. An optional built-in SSD supports advanced logging, data captures and other enhanced services directly on the switch.

The 7050Q switch shares a common architecture with other members of the Arista 7050 Series providing a consistent level of performance, scale and resilience. The 7050Q delivers line rate 40GbE performance enabling scale out of Leaf-Spine designs with 40GbE links between the tiers and direct connection to 40Gb servers and storage devices. The Arista 7050Q-16 provides scalability improvements in dense leaf and spine architectures with support for 40GbE for link aggregation and a reduction in link serialization delays.
