QFX10002 fixed-configuration switches are very dense, highly scalable platforms designed for today’s most demanding data center environments. They’re loaded with power and functionality, all housed in a compact, 2 U form factor.
The switches feature a deep buffer with Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) to absorb network traffic spikes and reduce application latency. They also support 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE in the same platform, giving you the flexibility to transition to greater network capacity as your traffic demands increase.
Enabling hardware and software to work together as an intelligent, unified network, the QFX10000 line of Switches form the underlying data center infrastructure for Contrail Networking, which automates networking policy and performs life-cycle management for data center fabrics. Contrail Networking abstracts network connectivity using virtual overlays across legacy and cloud-native workloads running on servers attached to QFX Series Switches.
Deep Buffer with HMC
Absorbs potential network traffic spikes.
Offers diverse options for a wide range of deployments, such as data center spine, data center edge, and DCI.
Optimized Power Profile
Has an optimized power profile per 100GbE port for reduced OpEx with the QFX10002-60C.
Lets you evolve from 10GbE to 40GbE, 100GbE, and in the future, 400GbE, protecting your investment.
Provides connectivity for legacy and cloud-native workloads across multicloud environments with Contrail Networking.
Multicloud DCI Management
Uses Contrail Enterprise Multicloud for overlay control between data centers and cloud with standards-based EVPN/VXLAN.
Supports EVPN/VXLAN, IP Fabric, and multichassis link aggregation group (MC-LAG) for Layer 2 and Layer 3 networks, delivering the flexibility needed to quickly deploy and support new services.
Precision Time Protocol
Supports financial trading and time-stamping packets for synchronization.
