ACX7100 Series

Emerging 5G, IoT, and low-latency virtualized edge services offer network operators a transformational opportunity to deliver new applications and services efficiently and securely at cloud scale. The ACX7100 Series sets new benchmarks for capacity, density, and low latency in the ACX family of access and aggregation routers. 

ACX7100 platforms deliver 4.8 Tbps of ASIC forwarding capacity in an energy-efficient 1 U footprint. They bring port speed flexibility of 10GE to 400GE services to metro, enterprise, and data center use cases supporting ZR and ZR+ pluggable transceivers, the latest protocol and traffic engineering technologies, and advanced timing capabilities.

The ACX7100-32C is ideal for secure, high-end service aggregation, with 32 100GE ports, 4 400GE ports, and MACsec on all ports. The ACX7100-48L is ideal for service aggregation throughout your network, with cloud-scale-inspired port speed variety (10GE, 25GE, 50GE, and 6 ports of 400GE).

Features + Benefits

Supports all Services on a Single Platform

An integral part of a Juniper Cloud Metro solution, offering converged, virtualized, and automated architectures designed for the 5G, IoT, and cloud era. 

MACsec with AES-256

ACX7100-32C supports IEEE 802.11ae MACsec with AES-256 for link-layer data confidentiality, data integrity, and data origin authentication on all ports.

Packet Optical Convergence

Integration of QSFP56-DD pluggable optics and 400ZR/ZR+ pluggable transceiver technology enables configuration on a port-by-port basis between grey client interfaces (400GbE LR4) for shorter distances and coherent DWDM interfaces (400ZR/ZR+) for longer distances and transport over active optical line systems.

One Junos Experience

Built around Junos OS Evolved, you get the same consistent behavior, automation, and advanced programmability found across Juniper’s portfolio.
