Solution Benefits

Juniper’s ACX7000 series are specifically designed for use as CSRs in 4G and 5G networks. They provide the necessary connectivity and routing capabilities at cell sites to enable seamless communication between the radio access network (RAN) and the core network. The ACX Series routers offer advanced features tailored for mobile backhaul (MBH) and xHaul applications. They support high-speed interfaces, such as Ethernet and optical interfaces, to handle the bandwidth requirements of modern cellular networks. These routers are designed to handle the challenges of high-volume traffic, low latency, and strict quality of service (QoS) requirements associated with 4G and 5G deployments.

ACX Series routers provide scalability, security features, and advanced traffic management capabilities, making them suitable for diverse deployment scenarios. They can handle a range of services, including Fronthaul, Midhaul, and Backhaul, while ensuring efficient traffic flow, service prioritization, and network resilience.

  • Flexibility: The seamless MPLS segment routing framework allows for flexible routing and traffic management, ensuring efficient allocation of network resources. This flexibility is crucial for optimizing network performance and accommodating diverse service requirements in a 5G environment.
  • Low Latency: 5G networks require ultra-low latency to support real-time applications such as autonomous vehicles, remote surgery, and virtual reality. ACX7000 Cloud Metro Routers assure an ultra-low latency forwarding while Segment Routing MPLS (SR-MPLS) provides an optimized latency based path forwarding in the network eliminating the need for complex protocol processing.
  • Scalability: The 5G network infrastructure needs to support a massive number of devices and provide seamless connectivity. SR-MPLS segment routing enables network scalability by simplifying the forwarding plane and reducing the control plane complexity. This allows for efficient resource utilization and optimized network performance.
  • Traffic Engineering: Seamless MPLS segment routing provides advanced traffic engineering capabilities, enabling operators to dynamically control and optimize the flow of traffic. This allows for efficient load balancing, congestion avoidance, and QoS management, which are essential for delivering high-performance 5G services.
  • Network Resiliency: MPLS segment routing offers fast rerouting mechanisms and supports protection and restoration schemes, allowing the network to quickly recover from failures and maintain service continuity.
  • Simplified Operations: MPLS segment routing simplifies network operations by leveraging source routing. Instead of maintaining complex routing tables at every network node, the forwarding path is explicitly encoded in the packet header. This simplifies network configuration, reduces control plane overhead, and improves overall operational efficiency.
