Overview

The SDN-ready MX960 3D Universal Edge Router brings high performance, reliability, and scale for service provider and enterprise applications. It offers 10.56 Tbps of system capacity in one-third of a standard telco rack, with support for high-density 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE interfaces, as well as legacy SONET/SDH, ATM, and PDH connectivity.

Powered by Junos OS and the programmable Junos Trio chipset, the MX960 delivers high performance, reliability, and scale to enable a cost-effective digital transformation and ensure a positive customer experience under all network conditions. Key features include support for a wide range of L2/L3 VPN services and advanced broadband network gateway functions, along with integrated routing, switching and security services.

Features

  • Scales through 10.56 Tbps and beyond, with support for over 40 100GbE interfaces and hundreds of 10GbE interfaces to ensure investment protection.
  • Integrates a wide set of services—including carrier-grade NAT (CGNAT), stateful firewall, and deep-packet inspection—at high scale, with no impact to forwarding plane performance or control plane stability.
  • Seamlessly integrates with standard-based SDN controllers such as the Contrail Cloud Platform.
  • Serves as an ideal anchor point for service chains that include physical and virtual elements, enabling highly elastic, automated, and customized service delivery.
