We're currently looking at Arista's development in the IP/MPLS space.
While we are not yet ready to spend money on them for that, we think the
future is bright. So we are working very closely with them to get their
IP and MPLS code to where it would make sense for us. I'm hopeful we
shall be investing in Arista for routing in the very near future.

But we love them for switching, and will be activating some of their
platforms for that use-case very soon.
