Solution Benefits

Robust QoS management is an integral part of any 5G Fronthaul network. The Class of Service (CoS) functionality of the ACX7100 and ACX7509 routers offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Priority Handling: The ACX7100 and ACX7509 have built-in features that enable priority handling for network traffic. These features allow for the effective implementation of Quality of Service (QoS) and CoS functionalities. CoS allows for prioritizing specific traffic types or applications, ensuring that critical services receive the necessary bandwidth and low latency. This prioritization is vital in 5G architectures, where ultra-reliable low latency communication (URLLC) workloads must coexist with high bandwidth applications.
  • Quality of Service (QoS): The ACX7100 and ACX7509 support various QoS techniques, including priority queuing, weighted fair queuing (WFQ), and weighted round-robin (WRR) scheduling. These techniques allow the routers to prioritize and allocate resources to different traffic classes based on their defined priorities. By assigning appropriate priority levels, the routers can ensure that time-sensitive or high-priority traffic, such as voice or video data, receives preferential treatment over other traffic types.
  • Traffic Shaping and Policing: The ACX7100 and ACX7509 supports advanced traffic shaping and policing capabilities. Traffic shaping allows for controlling the flow of traffic to match the available bandwidth and manage congestion. Policing, on the other hand, enforces traffic limits by dropping or marking packets that exceed the defined thresholds.
  • Service Differentiation: With CoS, service providers can offer differentiated service levels to their customers. They can prioritize premium services, guaranteeing a better user experience and meeting specific service-level agreements (SLAs). This capability helps service providers attract and retain customers by offering tailored services to meet their individual needs.
  • Scalability and Flexibility: The Juniper ACX7100 and ACX7509 provide scalable and flexible platforms for implementing CoS in 5G Fronthaul networks. These routers offer robust performance, high port density, and advanced traffic management capabilities, allowing for seamless expansion and adaptation to evolving network requirements.
