The QFX Series switches integrate, secure and automate your data center networks. They build a robust underlay basis for elastic and high-performance fabrics that improve network reliability and agility, serving to shorten the path to multicloud. Some of the important QFX Series products are as:
The Juniper QFX5100 series is offered in many models. Each has variable numbers of ports and modules, but they provide all of the same architecture and benefits. Depending on the number of ports, modules, and use case, a specific model can adequate into multiple roles of a data center or campus architecture. In fact, it’s common to get the similar model of switch in multiple roles in an architecture. Few models are as
QFX5200 Ethernet switch
The QFX5200 line of fixed-configuration Ethernet switches provides a line-rate, low-latency, and high-density platform for building large spine-and-leaf IP-fabric data center networks. This switch offers flexible 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE interfaces for server and intrafabric connectivity, proposing deployment versatility to future-proof your network investment.
The QFX5200 Ethernet switches come in three models:
Native 25GbE Ports
QFX5200-48Y provide 48 native 25GbE ports that can be configured to 10GbE, and 100GbE uplink ports that can be arranged to 40GbE speeds.
Rich Automation Capabilities
Rich automation capabilities include Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) and provision for Python, Chef, Puppet, and others.
High-Density IP Fabrics
Provision for 32x100GbE in a 1 U platform and 64x100GbE in a 2 U platform provides a robust foundation for constructing high-density IP fabrics in the data center.
The QFX5200-32C and QFX5210-64C offer flexible 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE connectivity choices, offering deployment versatility and investment protection.
For a while, Juniper had a product gap in its switching portfolio: a high-density, feature-rich data center switch. The Juniper QFX10000 family of switches fills this gap. It has been the most awaited switch in the company’s history. The Juniper QFX10000 also proceeds virtualization to heart: under the hood, it uses Linux and KVM to virtualize the network operating system (Junos) to reap all the benefits of virtualization, such as snapshots and In-Service Software Upgrades (ISSU).
