Juniper Networks EX8200 Ethernet Switches
High-Performance carrier-class Ethernet Switches

The EX8200 line of modular Ethernet switches is a family of high-performance, highly available platforms for for use in high-density 10GbE data centers, campus aggregations and core networks.

Two EX8200 chassis options are available:

Both EX8200 switches use the same line cards, which offer a variety of 10/100/1000BASE-T, 100BASE-FX/1000BASE-X and 10GbE interfaces. Fully configured, a single EX8208 can support 384 GbE or 64 10GbE ports at wire speed, or 320 10GbE ports in shared bandwidth applications, while a fully configured EX8216 can support twice that number, offering one of the industry's highest 10GbE port densities.

Up to three EX8208 switches or two EX8216 switches can fit in a single 42-unit rack, delivering an unprecedented 256 wire-speed or 1,280 shared-bandwidth 10GbE ports per rack.

The EX8200 also supports Juniper's unique Virtual Chassis technology, which enables two interconnected switches to operate as a single, logical device. Deployed as a collapsed aggregation or core layer solution, an EX8200 Virtual Chassis configuration creates a network fabric for interconnecting access switches, routers, and service-layer devices using standards-based Ethernet LAGs.

EX8200 Line Cards

The Juniper Networks EX8200 line of Ethernet switches offer powerful, modular platforms that deliver the performance, scalability, and carrier-class reliability required for today’s high-density enterprise data center and campus aggregation and core environments, as well as high-performance service provider interconnects.

EX8200 Ethernet Switches

Juniper Networks 8200-48T Line CardEX8200-48T
48-port 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 line card

The EX8200-48T Ethernet line card offers 48 10/100/1000BASE-T ports with RJ-45 copper connectors. Designed for data center end-of-row server access, or campus applications where high densities, high performance, and high availability over copper links up to 100 m are required, the EX8200-48T enables up to 384 line-rate ports in a single EX8208 chassis, or 768 ports in an EX8216 chassis.

Juniper Networks 8200-48F Line CardEX8200-48F
48-port 100FX/1000BASE-X SFP line card (Requires SFP+ optics sold separately)

The EX8200-48F is a 48-port 100BASE-FX/1000BASE-X line card with modular small form-factor pluggable transceiver (SFP) interfaces for supporting a wide range of 100 Mbps or Gigabit Ethernet optical connections over multimode fiber, single-mode fiber, or copper cabling. Designed for high-performance enterprise and service provider distribution applications, the EX8200-48F also enables up to 384 line-rate ports in an EX8208 chassis, and 768 ports in an EX8216 chassis.

Juniper Networks 8200-8XS Line CardEX8200-8XS
8-port 10GbE SFP+ line card (Requires SFP+ optics sold separately)

The EX8200-8XS is an eight-port 10GBASE-X line card with compact, modular SFP+ fiber optic interfaces, enabling up to 64 line-rate 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports in an EX8208 chassis and 128 ports in an EX8216 chassis. The EX8200-8XS is ideal for enterprise applications such as campus or data center uplink aggregation, core and backbone interconnects, and for service providers requiring high-density, wire-speed 10-Gigabit Ethernet interconnects in metro area networks, Internet exchange points, and points of presence (POPs). The 10-Gigabit Ethernet port densities afforded by the EX8200-8XS line cards also enable EX8200 switches to consolidate aggregation and core layers in the data center, simplifying the network architecture and reducing power, space, and cooling requirements while lowering total cost of ownership (TCO).

EX8200-40XSEX8200-40XS
40-port 1GbE/10GbE SFP/SFP+ line card (Requires SFP/SFP+ optics sold separately)

The EX8200-40XS is a 40-port oversubscribed 10GbE solution for data center end-of-row and middle-of-row server access, as well as for data center blade switch and top-of-rack or campus uplink aggregation deployments. Optimized for data center networks migrating from GbE to 10GbE interfaces where simultaneous line-rate performance is not required on all ports, the EX8200-40XS supports a wide range of both SFP (GbE) and SFP+ (10GbE) modular optical interfaces for connecting over multimode fiber, single mode fiber, and copper cabling.

EX8200-48TL/48PLEX8200-48TL/48PL
48-port 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 20Gbps line card (Requires SFP+ optics sold separately)

The EX8200-48TL offers 48 oversubscribed (2.4:1) 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 ports to provide cost-effective GbE server access in high-density data center end-of-row applications. The EX8200-48TL also supports server access, converged access, and aggregation/core deployments, where it can be used to connect management stations, analyzers, sniffers, firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention/intrusion detection service (IDP/ IDS) devices, server load balancers, and other devices.
The EX8200-48PL is physically identical to the -48TL and includes support for the IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) standard. It delivers up to 15.4 watts of Class 3 PoE on all 48 ports to power networked devices such as telephones, video cameras, and wireless LAN (WLAN) access points, providing an EX8200-based user access or converged access/core solution.
