Juniper Routers

MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers

The continuous expansion of mobile, video and cloud-based services is disrupting traditional networks and impacting the businesses that rely on them. While annual double-digit traffic growth requires massive resource investments to prevent congestion and accommodate unpredictable traffic spikes, capturing return on that investment can be elusive. Emerging Internet of Things (IoT) communications promise even greater network challenges in the near future.

At the same time, traditional operations environments are increasingly challenged to meet consumer and business requirements for rapid service delivery and cloud-like network experiences. Issues related to monitoring and management are placing additional stress on already strained budgets and personnel, and promising technologies like Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and SDN introduce an entirely new set of operational challenges.

Our hyper-connected world demands more agile, automated, and scalable networks. Now more than ever, network operators need to transform their networks—and their operations environments—to accommodate this reality.

Utilizing state-of-the-art software and hardware innovations, Juniper Networks® MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers are helping network operators worldwide successfully transform their networks and services. Powered by the Juniper Networks Junos® operating system and the programmable Trio chipset, MX Series routers support a broad set of automation tools and telemetry capabilities that enable a rich set of business- and consumer-oriented services with predictable low latency and wire-rate forwarding at scale, while providing the reliability needed to meet strict service-level agreements (SLAs).

An Agile Family of MX Edge Routers

The MX Series portfolio was designed for agility and built from the ground up to support a universal set of edge applications. This approach helps Juniper customers rapidly respond to evolving business and technical requirements while simplifying operations without sacrificing their current infrastructure investments. This agility starts with the programmable Trio chipset, which enables MX Series routers to flexibly add support for new features, such as telemetry, without costly hardware upgrades. Additionally, support for the Junos Automation Toolkit and the Juniper Extension Toolkit provide modern programming languages that reduce costs and increase profitability by improving productivity and customization.
