Switching

Network Infrastructure

As a leader in security and infrastructure, Juniper Networks provides a complete portfolio of network products. While network infrastructure products have become increasingly similar in form and functionality, Juniper provides unique value with their offerings based on JUNOS, a carrier class operating system ported across the entire Juniper line. With separation of control and forwarding planes, and the stability of JUNOS, Juniper's offerings are significantly superior to any competitor.

Switching

Juniper's offerings include the EX4200, a line of Ethernet switches with Virtual Chassis technology combining the high availability (HA) and carrier-class reliability of modular systems with the economics and flexibility of stackable platforms, delivering a high-performance, scalable solution for data center, campus and branch office environments.

Offering a full suite of Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching capabilities as part of the base software, the EX4200 satisfies a variety of high-performance applications, including branch, campus and data center access deployments as well as Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) aggregation deployments. A single 24-port or 48-port switch can be deployed initially; as requirements grow, Juniper Networks Virtual Chassis technology allows up to 10 EX4200 switches to be interconnected over a 128 gigabit-per-second (Gbps) backplane and managed as a single device, delivering a scalable, pay-as-you-grow solution for expanding network environments. Flexible Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) uplink options enable high-speed connectivity to aggregation- or core- layer switches which connect multiple fl oors or buildings.

Routing

M-series Routing Platforms
Juniper Networks M-series Multiservice Edge platforms are deployed in the world's largest networks delivering advanced IP/MPLS services at scale, enabling service providers to reduce costs through network consolidation while simultaneously generating new revenues. Constructed with a clean separation between control plane, forwarding plane, and services plane, M-series routers support multiple services over any type of access connection without compromise on a single platform - maximizing revenue and minimizing operational and capital costs. These services include a broad array of VPNs, network-based security, real-time voice and video, bandwidth on demand, rich multicast of premium content, IPv6 services, granular accounting and much more. This service portfolio continues to grow with every release of JUNOS software, leveraging the tremendous flexibility and performance headroom of the service-built architecture.


Enhanced for the Edge
The M-series platforms are extremely versatile as they can be deployed at the edge of provider networks, in small and medium cores, and in peering, route reflector, and data center applications. However, recent Mseries platforms innovations have dramatically expanded their edge capabilities by leveraging the highly programmable Internet Processor II ASIC and IP/MPLS-rich JUNOS software. M-series routers are now deployed and scaling services at the edge of some of the world's largest production networks.
