Arista’s CEO Jayshree Ullal looks at repercussions, work-arounds, commitment

We recently released a new version of EOS (4.16.6M) that we believe addresses the ITC’s infringement findings in this case. This new version of EOS is now available for download and will be shipped as the default image on all of new products in the near future.

Consistent with the standard practice in the ITC, we plan to request regulatory approvals of our new software to clarify that our products fully comply with the ITC’s orders. We are also establishing US manufacturing capabilities for additional operational flexibility.It is paramount to note that we intend to fully adhere to all ITC legal requirements and all products that are manufactured here in the United States will contain design-around versions of EOS.

All international customers are unaffected by ITC orders. Our primary focus is the continued supply and service of non-infringing products to our customers.

Arista Ahead

Our purpose is steadfast and unwavering. We believe that entrenched habits and defensive approaches of legacy players must change. Arista is committed to this new breed of cloud-class, cloud scale and cloud-converged platforms with state-driven programmability, high availability and scalability. Together we are powering some of the world’s best and largest cloud networks with foundational quality and support.

The drumbeat for both agile innovation and accountability for risk and operational cost reduction is an unquestionable mandate. With several thousand man-years of investments and 10+ million lines of software over the past decade, the Arista journey has only just begun.
