Description: Juniper MX-series MX104 - Router - TDM, PTP - rack-mountable
Mfr Part #: MX104-PREM-AC-BNDL
Juniper Networks SDN-ready MX104 3D Universal Edge Router is optimized for the aggregation of mobile, enterprise WAN, business, and residential access services. Based on a central office-optimized MX series chassis supporting a redundant control plane for high availability, the MX104 is temperature hardened to allow deployment in outside cabinets and remote terminals. It also provides services that extend the service edge to the aggregation domain. The MX104 incorporates industry-leading timing and synchronization technology to enhance quality of experience (QoE) for mobile broadband, and is managed through the Junos Space Network Management Platform for rapid service design provisioning and lower TCO.
Juniper Networks SDN-ready MX104 3D Universal Edge Router is Juniper's response to a shift in metro network architecture where the aggregation layer is assuming responsibility for the service provider edge. The MX104 simplifies metro architectures by eliminating unnecessary layers, dramatically reducing CapEx and OpEx. Based on the architectural simplification and cost reduction, service providers and enterprises can adopt the "Edge Anywhere" paradigm enabled by MX104.
The MX104 3D Universal Edge Router is optimized for aggregating mobile, enterprise WAN, business, and residential access services. The MX104 comes in a space-efficient 3.5 RU ETSI-300 mm compliant chassis and supports 80 Gbps of throughput, setting a benchmark for port density in its product category.
- Four Modular Interface Card (MIC) slots support flexible configuration options
- Investment protecting support for all MX series type 1 and dual width MICs, as well as the Multiservices MIC
- Redundant control plane and power supplies for high availability
- A temperature hardened design and low power consumption, enabling deployment in extreme temperature situations such as in outside cabinets and remote points of presences (POPs)
- Juniper's award-winning advanced trio chipset and Junos operating system, which enable metro aggregation to be the "distributed edge"
- Highly scalable and reliable hardware-based timing technology that meets the strictest LTE requirements for frequency and phase synchronization to enhance QoE for mobile Broadband
- Junos space service activation director to minimize provisioning and end-to-end solution management costs
- Redundant routing engines
The MX104 supports hot-pluggable redundant Routing Engines (REs) for control plane redundancy. The RE provides the control plane functions, runs Junos OS, and handles all routing protocol processes as well as the software processes that control the router's interfaces, chassis components, system management, and user access to the router.
- Modular design
The MX104 provides four MIC slots for flexible configuration options required to support various applications. The modular design and flexibility provided by these slots also enables a pay as-you-grow model that provides optimal cost configuration based on traffic growth projections.
- Edge services capability
The MX104 features Juniper's award winning Junos Trio ASIC with a full set of edge services typical of the MX series family. These services include full Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs for business edge applications, as well as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), subscriber management, and multicast support for residential edge applications. In fact, through Junos Trio and Junos OS, the MX104 acts as a full-featured broadband network gateway (BNG) in a compact form factor that is ideal for distributed BNG deployments.
- Integrated timing
The MX104 incorporates highly scalable and reliable hardware based timing technology that meets the strictest LTE requirements for frequency and phase synchronization. Providing an accurate timing reference is one of the most significant technical and operational challenges for deployment of LTE radio access technology. MX104 supports Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) for frequency as well as Precision Timing Protocol (PTP) for both frequency and phase synchronization. Furthermore, the MX104 allows SyncE and PTP to be used in a hybrid mode for the highest level of frequency and phase accuracy required for LTE-Advanced. Thus, the MX104 is an ideal choice for the aggregation of mobile backhaul traffic.
