Juniper Networks QFX5200 Series Switch
Part Number: QFX5200-32C-DC-AFI
Network operators are increasingly deploying scale-out, spine-and-leaf IP fabric architectures, built with fixed-configuration switches to support growing east-west traffic in the data center. The Juniper Networks® QFX5200 line of next-generation, fixedconfiguration leaf/access switches offers flexible, cost-effective, high-density 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE interfaces for server and intra-fabric connectivity, providing deployment versatility, investment protection, and future-proofing for today’s data centers.
In addition to leaf deployments in IP fabric architectures, the QFX5200 switches are also a great fit for multitier, multichassis link aggregation (MC-LAG) network implementations commonly used in enterprise networks. Like other QFX Series switches, the QFX5200 supports advanced Layer 2, Layer 3, and MPLS features. For large public cloud providers—among the first to adopt 25GbE servers to meet explosive workload growth—the QFX5200 enables very large, dense, and fast IP fabrics based on proven, Internet scale technology. For enterprise customers seeking investment protection as they transition their server farms from 10GbE to 25GbE, the QFX5200 line provides native 10GbE and 25GbE downlink ports as well as 40GbE and 100GbE uplink connections. The QFX5200 runs the same reliable, high-performance Juniper Networks Junos® operating system used by network operators around the world. The QFX5200 supports a modular version of Junos OS that allows the switch’s control plane and data plane processes and functions to run in parallel, maximizing utilization of the high-performance quad-core CPU.
