QFX5120 Switches offer 1 U, 1/10/25/40/100GbE fixed configuration for data centers and campus deployments. Cloud services require higher network bandwidth per rack, making 10GbE, 25GbE and 100GbE the dominant port speeds.
Coupled with the widespread adoption of overlay technologies, the QFX5120 lays a strong infrastructure foundation for your evolving business and network needs.
The switch is packed with software features that support traditional fabric designs with multichassis link aggregation (MC-LAG) or evolving SDN architectures with Ethernet VPN (EVPN)/Virtual Extensible (VXLAN) on IP fabric underlays.
Juniper’s Apstra solution provides a comprehensive fabric management solution, providing intent-driven automation for deployment along with robust monitoring for assured operation.
