QFX10002 fixed-configuration switches are very dense, highly scalable platforms designed for today’s most demanding data center environments. They’re loaded with power and functionality, all housed in a compact, 2 U form factor.

The switches feature a deep buffer with Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) to absorb network traffic spikes and reduce application latency. They also support 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE in the same platform, giving you the flexibility to transition to greater network capacity as your traffic demands increase.

The QFX10000 line of switches provides universal building blocks for industry standard architectures such as spine-and-leaf and Layer 3 fabrics. Juniper’s Apstra solution provides a comprehensive fabric management solution, providing intent-driven automation for deployment along with robust monitoring for assured operation.

QFX10002 switches, which use our custom silicon Q5 ASICs, come in three models:

  • QFX10002-36Q for data center spine and core deployments: This 2 U switch provides 36x40GbE or 12x100GbE ports for throughput of up to 2.88 Tbps.
  • QFX10002-72Q for data center spine and core deployments: This 2 U switch provides 72x40GbE or 24x100GbE ports for throughput of up to 5.76 Tbps.
  • QFX10002-60C for data center spine, data center edge, and data center interconnect (DCI) deployments: This 2 U switch offers 60x100GbE ports for throughput of up to 6 Tbps.
