Mojo networks is named under the visionary in Gartner quadrant n wired and wireless networking and hence with this move Arista Networks comes into the campus wired and wireless networking.

Arista has transported more than 15 million cloud networking ports worldwide with Cloud Vision and EOS, an innovative network operating system. Dedicated to open standards across private, public and hybrid cloud solutions, Arista products are supported worldwide directly and through partners.

“Mojo’s Wi-Fi is disrupting the old-fashioned closed wireless controller model, to bring radical improvements in scale and economics,” said John McCool, Chief Platform Officer and Senior Vice President of Engineering and Operations for Arista Networks.

Analysts from Morningstar investments report that Arista’s expansion into campus networking was at the request of existing customers who are currently using Data Center networking within their campus environments. 

Arista in close partnership with VMware will expand opportunities from Data Center into campus, branch, IOT and edge, Arista’s main attack on traditional 3-tier campus networks not only attacks Cisco, but also their access networking partner HPE Aruba.

This strategy hinges on intent-based networking enhancements to their CloudVision SDN controller highlighting the value proposition of unified management for Data Center, Campus, and Branch.

This declaration allows Arista to enter for campus openings where it may already have a Data Center impression or through partner pull-through. But this tactic being prejudiced on fragmented partnerships and meeting competing products also puts them at jeopardy of not being able to execute on what customers actually require.

Let’s see how the Arista will act on their customers with the new portfolio of the wired and Wireless domain.
