Topics Covered

Building AI Network Fabrics

Starting with the building blocks of AI/ML, we will consider the requirements needed to design and build IP/Ethernet networks to support these kinds of workloads.

We will review the history of lossless fabrics, the techniques and protocols involved - including ROCEv2, ECN and PFC - as well as how to leverage the different buffering technologies offered by Arista platforms.

AGNI: Network Identity as-a-Service

Arista Guardian for Network Identity (AGNI) is the next-generation, cloud-native, AI-driven solution that delivers identity-based Network Access Control (NAC).

This session will showcase how AGNI provides: a simple, self-service onboarding using SSO for wireless users; a complete certificate life cycle management with cloud-native PKI infrastructure; authorization and segmentation; behavioral profiling; and visibility of all connected devices.

Advances in Cognitive Campus

In this session, we will look at the latest technology advances in Campus networking: from Zero-trust Network Security, including updates from Arista's NDR, AGNI and MSS-G solutions, to Cognitive Operations covering the latest EOS and CloudVision feature additions.

We will also review the latest 720 and 750 Campus POE Series Switches, as well as the newest updates to the Wi-Fi platform portfolio.

Next Generation Enterprise WAN Routing

Built upon the Arista 5000 Series Routers and CloudEOS virtual and cloud platforms, Arista continues expanding its next generation WAN Enterprise solutions.

During this session we will cover both Enterprise WAN Routing and DCI solutions based on the latest EVPN and SR functionalities as well as SD-WAN features and technologies such as Application Identification, Adaptive Overlays and Dynamic Path Selection and Path Computation. 

Advancing Network Security with Arista's Multi-domain Segmentation Services

This session delves into Arista's cutting-edge Multi-domain Segmentation Services (MSS), a cornerstone technology for architecting a robust zero-trust network spanning both data-center and campus environments.

We will explore the practical application of MSS capabilities and workflows, demonstrating how they can be harnessed to effectively establish dynamic micro- and macro-perimeters, and provide valuable insights by comparing MSS with traditional or alternative approaches within the industry.
