Description: Juniper MX-series MX960 - Modular expansion base - ATM, Frame Relay
Mfr Part #: CHAS-BP-MX960-ECM-S
To ensure that the Juniper Networks MX960 Ethernet Services Router delivers the lowest cost per port without sacrificing performance, reliability, scalability or functionality, it has been purpose-built to optimize both switching and carrier-class Ethernet routing functionality.
Ethernet-based services present a significant revenue opportunity for service providers. These services include VPNs, point-to-point connectivity, high speed Internet access and video-based offerings. With continuous technology advances and ongoing standards development, Ethernet is increasingly the technology of choice at the service provider edge. As an example of Juniper's commitment to delivering Ethernet-centric solutions to meet the needs of next-generation networks and services, the MX960 offers unmatched scalability, performance, reliability and QoS for both business and residential services.
The MX960 Ethernet Services Router is a high density Layer 2 and Layer 3 Ethernet platform designed for deployment in a number of service provider Ethernet edge scenarios.
- Fully redundant hardware
- Modular operating system
- Separate data and control planes
- Graceful restart
- Non-stop routing
- MPLS FRR
- VPLS multi-homing
- Enhanced QoS capabilities
- Additional packet processing flexibility
- Scaling enhancements including route lookup, next hop, IFL scaling, and interface accounting
- Enhanced multicast performance
- Interface scalability
As the largest form factor in the MX series, the MX960 chassis provides up to 12 slots that can be populated with up to 480 ports of Gigabit Ethernet or up to 48 10 GE ports.
- Advanced QoS
the MX series features superior QoS at the interface level, which improves port density, can reduce costs and enables service providers to ensure that services receive the appropriate level of service regardless of traffic conditions. This enables providers to offer a variety of Layer 2 and Layer 3 services over Ethernet, such as VLAN/transparent LAN, L2/L3 VPNs, VoIP, with guaranteed service level agreements (SLAs).
