Strengthening our Network with Arista

Our Network | By Northland Communications Team

It’s no secret that data is growing at an unprecedented rate. In 2020, 1.7 MB of data was created every second. With that amount of data, it is imperative that networks can expand while also keeping systems reliable, stable, and secure. At Northland, in order to keep up with this growth and support our customers, we have invested in Arista Networks.

Since its start in 2008, Arista Networks has been an industry leader in cognitive cloud networking solutions, delivering reliable, secure networks through CloudVision and Arista EOS, an advanced network operating system.

How Will Running on an Arista Network Benefit Our Customers?

  1. GROWTH: Arista uses merchant silicon and open-source software, which has helped them deliver a more significant pace of innovation. They are two years ahead of the competition and able to provide faster products quicker and expand for customer needs sooner. As our needs grow, Arista can quickly and easily grow with us.


  1. RELIABILITY: Running on an Arista network gives our customers the highest reliability in the industry. Arista’s networks have fewer bugs, security vulnerabilities, and exposures than legacy networks. Being a local business, we understand the implications of service interruptions. Loss of connectivity can mean money out of your pocket. With Arista, our network is alarmed and monitored 24/7.


  1. PERFORMANCE: With video meetings and live streaming playing an important role in our day-to-day lives, low latency is crucial. Arista has a long history of low-latency performance, stemming back to its very first product that helped give the stock market its quickest time to trade. Arista has maintained a performance advantage ever since and has recently returned to its roots as the low latency leader in the industry. Running on an Arista network also guarantees that our customers will always be the first to “ride Moore’s law.” Meaning, our customers are guaranteed to double speeds every 18 months.


  1. VISIBILITY: With CloudVision and Arista EOS, we have an unparalleled level of visibility into our network operations. All processes are automatically reported to a central database, allowing us to view data in real-time. This gives us the ability to troubleshoot and resolve issues faster and easier.

For more than 110 years, being a service-driven organization has been the hallmark of Northland Communications. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile for our customers and offering value and quality of service that others cannot which is why we invested in one of the best, most innovated, network solutions out there today.
