Features + Benefits
High Scale and Density
Scales through 9 Tbps with support for 15 400GbE interfaces and 75 100GbE interfaces, to provide long-term investment protection.
Offers excellent ratio of size to capacity and density, bringing new efficiency to a variety of applications.
Rich MultiService Edge Features
Supports BNG, business edge, consumer edge, peering, SDN gateway, data center and cloud edge, and metro aggregation functions.
Draws on best-in-class Juniper Trio 5 silicon to perform MACsec encryption without sacrificing performance.
Integrates many services—including carrier-grade NAT (CGNAT), stateful firewall, and deep packet inspection in a single platform, to address a wide range of applications and support efficient network and service consolidation.
Edge Threat Intelligence
Uses SecIntel, Juniper’s security intelligence feed, to identify and block malicious traffic at the edge. Customize policies on the MX router to protect command-and-control (C&C) servers, as well as create custom whitelists and blacklists.
Integrates seamlessly with standards-based SDN controllers such as Paragon Automation platform, making the MX960 an ideal anchor point for service chains that include physical and virtual elements.
