Juniper Networks QFX10000 Ethernet Switches
High-Density, Highly Scalable, Future-Proofed Spine Switches Optimized for the Cloud

The QFX10000 line of industry-leading switches offers a highly scalable, high-density network foundation for supporting today’s most demanding data center and cloud environments, including midsize to large data centers, private clouds, and public clouds.

Using custom, Juniper-built ASICs, the high-performance, highly versatile QFX10000 switches scale from 3 to 96 Tbps of throughput, delivering the capacity you need for long-term investment protection.

Additionally, by offering the industry’s highest 100GbE port density—up to 480 in a single chassis—the QFX10000 gives you the power to seamlessly evolve your data center networks from existing 10GbE and 40GbE architectures to 100GbE, to keep pace with evolving requirements.

The QFX10000 switches are also designed to accommodate future chipset upgrades capable of delivering up to 200 Tbps of throughput, with support for 400GbE interfaces (when available).

The QFX10000 switches also serve as the foundation for the Junos Fusion architecture, a new standards-based approach for creating an open, highly scalable switch fabric. Junos Fusion dramatically simplifies data center and cloud deployments while reducing management overhead.

Designed to function as a common building block in a variety of other network architectures and fabrics, QFX10000 switches give you maximum flexibility and ensure that you will never be locked into a proprietary solution. This architectural flexibility enables the QFX10000 switches to operate in diverse network environments, including Layer 3 spine-and-leaf Clos fabrics and L2/L3 networks with Juniper multichassis link aggregation (MC-LAG).

QFX10000 Line Cards

The QFX10000 line cards support an extensive set of Layer 2 and Layer 3 services that can be deployed in any combination of L2- L3 applications. Each QFX10000 line card is unique in its ability to support tri-speed 10GbE, 40GbE and 100GbE connections, enabling customers to transition seamlessly from one speed to another as their needs change. The unprecedented port density, high logical table sizes and up to 100ms deep packet buffers allow customers to deploy the most scalable systems necessary to meet the exponential data growth in the data center. Each QFX10000 line card is built upon the Juniper Q5 silicon, which supports a wide range of Layer 2 and Layer 3 Ethernet functionality including 802.1Q VLAN, VXLAN, link aggregation, Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), L2 to L3 mapping, and port monitoring. Additionally, the line cards support filtering, sampling, load balancing, rate limiting, class of service (CoS), MPLS, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) transit functionality, and other key features needed to deploy a dependable, lossless, high-performance Ethernet infrastructure.
