QFX5120 Switches offer 1 U, 10/25/100GbE fixed configuration ideal for data centers where cloud services are being added. These services require higher network bandwidth per rack, making 10GbE, 25GbE and 100GbE the dominant port speeds in most data centers.
Coupled with the widespread adoption of overlay technologies, the QFX5120 lays a strong infrastructure foundation for your evolving business and network needs.
The switch is packed with software features that support traditional fabric designs with multichassis link aggregation (MC-LAG) or evolving SDN architectures with Ethernet VPN (EVPN)/Virtual Extensible (VXLAN) on IP fabric underlays. All QFX switches form the foundation of Juniper Contrail Networking, which automates networking policy and performs life-cycle management for data center fabrics.
Up to 3.2 Tbps Layer 2 and Layer 3 performance, with latency as low as 550 nanoseconds.
Redundant Power and Cooling
Dual hot-swappable AC or DC power supplies provide 1+1 redundancy, and hot-swappable fan trays maintain high system availability.
Advanced Capabilities in Junos OS
Support for advanced networking features such as Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE).
Contrail Networking provides connectivity for legacy and cloud-native workloads across multicloud environments.
Server and Network Virtualization
Software-programmable infrastructure helps you make the most of your network resources and adapt quickly to changing needs.
Support for Python, Puppet, and Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) helps you address growing network complexity.
Flexible Deployment Options
EVPN/VXLAN Layer 2 and Layer 3 gateway support for edge routed or centrally routed overlay data center deployments.
