Overview

The QFX5200 Ethernet Switch delivers a line-rate, low-latency, and high-density platform for building large spine-and-leaf IP-fabric data center networks. The switch offers flexible 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE interfaces for server and intrafabric connectivity, offering deployment versatility that future-proofs your network investment.

The QFX5200, a compact, 1 U platform offering 32 QSFP+ or QSFP28 ports, features a high-throughput 3.2-Tbps Packet Forwarding Engine. A 1.8-GHz quad-core Intel CPU with 16GB of memory further boosts performance on the control plane.

Like other QFX Series switches, the QFX5200 supports advanced Layer 2, Layer 3, and MPLS features. You can use the QFX5200 to build large, high-density IP fabrics that support upgrades to 25GbE, network virtualization, and intelligent traffic-forwarding based on proven, Internet-scale technology.

The QFX5200 also supports a disaggregated version of Junos OS that allows control and data plane processes and functions to run in parallel, maximizing utilization of the high-performance quad-core CPU.
