This week, Arista announced that it has acquired software-defined networking (SDN) provider Big Switch Networks. This news was first reported by SDxCentral on January 22 but was not confirmed until Thursday, 13 February 2020, when Arista made the announcements as part of its earnings release. Arista described the acquisition as immaterial to its financials; it is rumored to be around $70M, compared to the $120M that had been raised by Big Switch.
