Arista Networks Networking Equipment/V1
Supports only Arista transceivers
Status: Current — The violation is standing.
Arista networking equipment often includes SFP, SFP+, or similar transceiver slots. These accept only Arista-made transceivers, despite the fact that these are standard components.
- This StackExchange question indicates that this restriction may be disableable for some devices.
- The transceiver's EEPROM can be reprogrammed to have Arista's vendor ID, causing it to be accepted. There are mail-in services which will perform this change, for a fee.
