Understanding interface breakout modes on Arista switches

Arista switches have the capability to break out QSFP and OSFP interfaces to multiple lanes of smaller speeds. This can be very useful for high density deployments that require a minimal RU footprint by maximizing the ports available on various Arista platforms. With QSFP interfaces, whether it be for 40G or 100G speeds, these are implemented as 4 lanes that can be independently controlled & configured. With 40G interfaces, these interfaces can operate in 4x10G speeds and for 100G interfaces can operate in 4x25G or 2x50G speeds .        As an example, with the Arista 7280CR2A-30 switch which comes with 30...
