Data center networks are struggling to support new applications, technologies, and traffic patterns. As enterprises decentralize, data centers have also become more geographically dispersed and distributed. Efforts to remedy these challenges with
traditional architectures add complexity and compromise business agility.
Juniper’s Ethernet switches, a key component of their data center switching architectures,
support deployments that scale from dozens to thousands of ports. The switches also play a critical role in the MetaFabric Architecture, enabling simple, open, and smart data centers.
• Scalable—from dozens to thousands of ports
• Time to value—accelerate deployment and delivery of applications within and across multiple sites and the cloud
• Simplified network management—multiple switches can be managed as a single device, streamlining monitoring and maintenance.
The EX2200 Ethernet Switch is ideal for access-layer deployments in branch offices and campus networks, delivering performance usually associated with more expensive products.
EX2200 switches are low power, low acoustic, 1 U devices designed for wiring closets, making them an economical solution for low-density access business needs.
Both 24 and 48 10/100/1000BASE-T port models are available, with optional 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) or 802.3at PoE+ for supporting networked devices such as telephones, video cameras, wireless LAN (WLAN) access points, and video phones.
The EX4200 Ethernet Switch is a compact, fixed-configuration solution that deploys easily in campus installations, as well as in 1 Gigabit Ethernet (1GbE) access environments in the data center. EX4200 brings flexible, scalable, high-performance switching to campuses and data center top-of-rack deployments, combining the availability and reliability of modular solutions with the flexibility of stackable switches.
The EX4200 switches support 10/100/1000BASE-T with both 24- and 48-port configurations, and they optionally include full or partial IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) or 802.3at PoE+. A 24-port 100BASE-FX/1000BASE-X SFP-based fiber configuration is available for gigabit aggregation in long-distance deployments. Available uplinks include 4-port 1GbE or 2-port 10GbE copper or fiber configurations, with and without Media Access Control Security (MACsec) capabilities.
The EX4600 Ethernet Switch offers a compact, highly scalable, high-performance 10GbE solution for enterprise campus distribution deployments as well as low-density data center top-of-rack environments.
Designed to help organizations grow into higher density campuses, the EX4600 provides deployment flexibility, high availability using unified in-service software upgrades (unified ISSU), and management simplification with support for multichassis link aggregation (MC-LAG). The highly flexible, high-density EX4600 supports up to 40 1GbE ports, 72 10GbE ports, or 12 40GbE ports through installable modules, delivering 1.44 Tbps of Layer 2 and Layer 3 connectivity in a single rack unit.
The EX4600 also supports Juniper’s Virtual Chassis technology, which allows up to 10 interconnected EX4600 and EX4300 switches to operate as a single logical device.
The EX9200 Overview
The EX9200 line of Ethernet switches provides a programmable, flexible, and scalable foundation for delivering mission-critical applications in enterprise campus and data center core environments.
EX9200 switches simplify the deployment of cloud applications, server virtualization, and rich media collaboration tools in enterprise campus and data center core and aggregation environments.
In the enterprise campus, the EX9200 enables collaboration and provides simple and secure access for the delivery of mission-critical applications. In the data center, it simplifies operations to align the network with fast-changing business requirements.
