QFX SeriesOur QFX Series switches secure and automate your data center networks. They build a strong underlay foundation for flexible and high-performance fabrics that improve network reliability and agility, helping to simplify the path to multicloud.

Access and Leaf

Deploy these nimble switches in your most demanding, high-performance data center environments.

QFX5100 Series Ethernet Switches

The QFX5100 Series are access and top-of-rack 10/25/40/100GbE Layer 2 and Layer 3 switches designed with a powerful feature set for application delivery and virtualized data centers. These switches enable high-availability data center operations by allowing unified in-service software upgrades (ISSU). As cloud trends continue to push the boundaries of network performance, the QFX5100 switches are optimized for high performance, density, and multicloud scale.

QFX5100 switches provide universal building blocks for multiple fabric architectures, including mixed 1/10/40/100GbE Virtual Chassis, Virtual Chassis Fabric, and Junos Fusion architectures. The switches also support open architectures, such as spine-and-leaf deployments, Layer 3, and OpenClos IP fabrics.

To meet today’s business demands, both software and hardware must work together as part of a unified network. QFX5100 switches provide the leaf or access layer foundation of the underlying data center infrastructure for Contrail Networking, a software platform that uses mature standards and protocols such as BGP EVPN and VXLAN to automate the setup and life-cycle management of QFX switches. This approach enables Contrail Networking to provide end-to-end policy and control across physical and virtual environments in the multicloud.

Lean Spine

Build a next-generation IP fabric network with a flexible leaf or lean spine switch that meets your evolving network requirements.

The QFX5200 switches provide a line-rate, low-latency platform for building large spine and leaf, IP-fabric data center networks. This switch offers flexible 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE interfaces for server and intrafabric connectivity. You can take advantage of its deployment versatility to future-proof your network investment.

To meet today’s business demands, both software and hardware must work together as part of a unified network. The QFX5200 switches provide the foundation of the underlying data center infrastructure for Contrail Networking, a platform that enables automated policies and life-cycle management of data center fabrics. Contrail Networking abstracts the network connectivity using virtual overlays across legacy and cloud-native workloads running servers attached to QFX Series switches.

Choose from three QFX5200 models.

Core and Spine

Achieve scalability, density, and flexibility like you’ve never seen before. Let our custom silicon switches exceed your cloud and data center demands today and every day afterward.

The QFX10002 line of switches offers highly scalable, high-density platforms. It provides a powerful foundation for supporting today’s most demanding data center environments—all in a compact, 2 U form factor.

Compared to shallow-buffer switches, the QFX10002 features a deep buffer with Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) to absorb network traffic spikes and reduce application latency. Additionally, QFX10002 fixed-configuration switches offer investment protection by supporting 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE in the same platform, giving you the flexibility to easily transition as demands evolve.

To meet your business requirements, both software and hardware must work together as parts of a unified network. The QFX10002 switches provide the foundation of the underlying data center infrastructure for Contrail Networking, a platform that enables automated policies and life-cycle management of data center fabrics.
