Description: Juniper EX Series 9208 - Switch - managed - rack-mountable
Mfr Part #: EX9208-CHAS3-S
The EX9200 line of programmable, flexible and scalable modular Ethernet core switch simplifies the deployment of cloud applications, virtualized servers and rich media collaboration tools across campus and data center environments.
As a key element of Juniper's "simply connected" portfolio of resilient switching, security, routing, and wireless products, the EX9200 Ethernet switch enables collaboration and provides simple and secure access to mission critical applications. In the data center, the EX9200 simplifies network architectures and network operations to better align the network with today's dynamic business environments.
As networks become a more strategic part of an enterprise's business, they need to be more agile. Network agility requires programmability, and the EX9200 provides that and more in its silicon and at the system and networking levels.
The EX9200 is based on Juniper one custom silicon, an ASIC designed by Juniper which provides a programmable Packet Forwarding Engine (PFE) and allows for native support of networking protocols such as virtualization using MPLS over IP and overlay network protocols. The EX9200 switch's network programmability also enables integration with leading orchestration applications.

- Simplified network architectures
The EX9200 is ideal for simplifying campus, data center, and combined campus and data center network environments by collapsing network layers. In the campus, the EX9200 collapses the core and distribution layers: when used with Juniper access layer switches deployed in a virtual chassis configuration, the EX9200 also reduces the number of managed devices by more than 50% while eliminating spanning tree protocol, dramatically simplifying the network architecture and network operations. Similarly, in the data center the EX9200 can be used to collapse core and aggregation layers: again, when used with Juniper access switches in a virtual class configuration, the EX9200 helps reduce the number of managed devices by more than 50% and eliminates sparring tree protocol from the network. In combined campus and data center environments, the EX9200 consolidates network layers to simplify the network architecture and operations. In all scenarios, the EX9200 delivers a simple, secure, virtualized network environment that increases enterprise business agility.
- High availability
EX9200 core switches deliver a number of nigh availability features that ensure uninterrupted, carrier-class performance. Each EX9200 chassis includes an extra slot to accommodate a redundant Routing Engine module which serves as a backup in hot-standby mode, ready to take over in the event of a master routing engine failure.
