High Scale and Density

Provides 40 Tbps of system capacity and support for up to 400 100GbE, 160 200GbE, or 80 400GbE interfaces.

Nonstop Service Availability

Combines support for the carrier-grade Junos operating system with a fully redundant architecture for uninterrupted service availability under any network conditions.

Broad Range of Applications

Addresses core, edge, and converged edge and core applications with its ultra-high density and performance; applications include residential and business services, Data Center Interconnect (DCI), SDN gateway, services routing, and many others.

Long-Term Investment Protection

Delivers outstanding scale for long-term traffic growth as well as an upgrade path for existing MX Series users, with support for the same MPCs used on the MX2020, MX2010, MX960, MX480, and MX240 Universal Routing Platforms.

Advanced Power Design

Provides advanced power-saving features that help contain OpEx and meet high standards of energy efficiency.


Integrates seamlessly with standards-based SDN controllers such as the Contrail Cloud Platform, making the MX2008 an SDN gateway between physical and virtual network elements.


The carrier-grade MX2008 Universal Routing Platform helps service providers and cloud operators address long-term traffic, subscriber, and services growth. The powerful SDN-ready platform provides high density, capacity, and throughput in only 24 rack units.

With the Modular Port Concentrator 11E (MPC11E) line card, the MX2008 delivers 40 Tbps of throughput in support of dense multirate interfaces for 100GbE, 200GbE, or 400GbE in a single chassis. Density and performance make the MX2008 ideal for a wide variety of edge, core, and converged edge and core applications, including business VPNs, next-generation broadband multiplay, and high-volume Internet and data center internetworking. The MX2008 also addresses the stringent requirements of mobile services with sophisticated timing and virtualization capabilities.

The MX2008 provides the highest levels of network availability with a comprehensive set of resiliency features that include N+1 fabric redundancy, control plane redundancy, N+N power feed redundancy, and N+1 power supply module redundancy. In addition, Virtual Chassis technology supports chassis-level redundancy while allowing you to manage two routers as a single element.
