The ACX5400 line of Universal Metro Routers is ideal for Ethernet service aggregation and packet-optical convergence. Offering GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, and 100GbE connectivity options in a 1 U footprint, the ACX5400 line gives you the flexibility to create high-density networks with the interfaces you need to support your unique traffic demands.
Choose between Ethernet aggregation, Ethernet aggregation with MACsec encryption, and Ethernet aggregation plus packet-optical convergence. This configuration flexibility allows you to build a 100GbE infrastructure even in environments where rack space for networking devices and cooling systems is limited.
Aggregate Multiple Services with High Availability
Built with metro service aggregation in mind, the ACX5400 line features 100GbE interfaces for network-to-network interface (NNI) uplinks. It fully supports E-Line, E-LAN, E-Tree, and E-Access, as well as IP-over-IP VPN services. The router supports your business with high-availability networking features such as unified in-service software upgrades (ISSU) and the Junos operating system for consistent delivery of mission-critical voice and video traffic.
The ACX5400 line also offers service virtualization on a dedicated, customizable, kernel-based virtual machine (KVM). The KVM executes operational scripts and programs for network performance monitoring and analysis.
High-Density Networking in Space-Challenged Environments
With the ACX5400 line, you can build high-density telco infrastructures that are both efficient and scalable. For sites with rack space limitations, these 1 U platforms support up to 48 GbE or 10GbE ports, up to 16 25GbE ports (via QSFP28 breakout), and up to six 100GbE ports. The packet-optical convergence version provides two 100/200G CFP2 DCO line-side ports for easy and highly flexible multilayer deployments.
The ACX5400 line satisfies the growing demand for access network capacity, fueled by a new generation of Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Networks (GPON), 4G/5G wireless base stations, and 10GbE user-to-network interface (UNI) service demands from business and residential customers.
The router’s 100-Gbps NNI ports deliver ample capacity for aggregation uplinks. Combine them with software capabilities designed for business, direct Internet, direct public cloud, residential fiber, and mobile backhaul and access networks for an optimal metro access and aggregation solution.
Using the Junos OS and Junos SDK, the ACX5400 line is fully customizable to meet your specific needs. Its scalability and reliability improve the user experience and lowers the cost associated with maintaining and updating your network infrastructure.
