Overview:

Like all ACX Series universal access routers, the compact 1RU ACX2000 is environmentally hardened with fan-less passive cooling and provides a versatile access platform that includes TDM, GbE and 10GbE interfaces.

The fixed port configuration includes 16 TDM (T1/E1) interfaces, eight copper GbE interfaces with PoE++ (65W) capability on two ports, two GbE SFP ports, and two 10 GbE SFP+ ports.

Product Description

Many networks have seen benefits from convergence in the core and the edge, a similar transformation is clearly required in the access network. Universal Access is an architectural concept that achieves this objective by extending operational intelligence from the edge to access network. Juniper Networks ACX Series Universal Access Routers are purpose built to support adaptive services architecture, enabling rapid deployment of access services and transforming the network to create a seamless end-to-end service delivery platform. ACX series being a family of hardened universal access routers can be deployed in a variety of service provider use cases namely, mobile backhaul, residential and business access, as well as mission critical enterprise use cases demanding high availability operation in extreme environments such as power utilities, oil & gas, mining, transportation, defense and public safety industries.

Juniper Networks ACX Series Universal Access Routers include the fixed configuration ACX1000, ACX1100, ACX2000, and ACX2100 Universal Access Routers in a compact 1 RU form factor. These are environmentally hardened and support passive cooling for easy deployments in outside street cabinets or environmental enclosures. The ACX4000 Universal Access Router is a modular 2.5 RU form factor with higher performance and configurable options for interface types. Powered by Juniper Networks Junos operating system, the ACX Series delivers industry-leading performance and simplified end-to-end provisioning with support for full IP/MPLS with traffic engineering, and extensive Layer 2 and Layer 3 functionality.

ACX Series Universal Access Routers cost-effectively address current operator challenges to rapidly deploy new, high bandwidth services. With industry leading performance of up to 60 Gbps for all models and the most comprehensive, traditional, and packet timing features, the ACX Series is well positioned to address the growing bandwidth needs in the access network. These platforms deliver the necessary scale and performance needed to support multi-generation services. With support for extensive hardware and software features, the ACX Series extends the operational intelligence all the way to the access network to deliver seamless end-to-end services. Equipped with interfaces for both timedivision multiplexing (TDM) and Ethernet (high density GbE, Power over Ethernet, and 10GbE), as well as support for high precision clocking and synchronization, the ACX Series platforms can support the mobile network's evolution path from 2G/2.5G to 3G/4G/Long Term Evolution (LTE) as well as diverse interface requirements in Enterprise applications.

Powered by Junos OS, the ACX Series family complements Juniper's Universal Edge and Universal WAN solutions through a flexible and scalable enterprise and branch routing portfolio optimized to support rapidly growing mobile, video, and cloud computing applications. The ACX Series introduces Juniper's proven IP/MPLS leadership from core and edge into the access layers of the network. Still maintaining relative simplicity in the access network, the ACX Series supports a rich suite of L2, L3, and IP/MPLS functionality to allow large-scale seamless MPLS networks with simplified service provisioning and operations.

Architecture and Key Components:

The ACX1000, ACX1100, ACX2000, and ACX2100 Universal Access Routers are compact 17.5 x 1.75 x 9.4 in (44.5 x 4.4 x 24 cm) platforms conforming to ETSI 300 specifications. This architecture enables ease of deployment in a telco or enterprise cabinet where rack space and cooling are limited. The ACX4000 is a modular 2.5 RU form factor with configurable options for interface types and overall density.

The ACX Series delivers an industry-leading performance with a range of port densities and interface types. Table below provides a snapshot of interfaces supported on each ACX Series model.
