Product Description

Juniper Networks® QFX10002 fixed configuration switches offer 100GbE, 40GbE, and 10GbE options in a 2 U form factor. All switches support quad small form-factor pluggable plus transceiver (QSFP+) and QSFP28 ports for 40GbE and 100GbE speeds, respectively. With support for 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE in a single platform, the QFX10002 switches provide the foundation for today’s data center, delivering long-term investment protection for current and emerging requirements.

Built on custom, Juniper-designed Q5 ASICs, the high-performance, highly versatile QFX10002 switches scale up to 6 Tbps of throughput. These switches offer the industry’s highest 100GbE port density with deep buffers—up to 60 ports in a 2 U fixed form factor. The QFX10002 enables a simple, consolidated network design and allows customers to seamlessly evolve data center networks from existing 10GbE and 40GbE architectures to 100GbE to keep pace with evolving needs.

The QFX10002 switches are members of the QFX10000 line of Ethernet switches, which can be deployed in a number of different designs and fabrics for Layer 2 and Layer 3 networks, including multichassis link aggregation (MC-LAG), Junos Fusion, and EVPN/VXLAN-based configurations on IP fabric underlay. The open architecture ensures customers can build on top of Juniper Networks Junos® operating system to accelerate their pace of innovation. The QFX10000 switches also support Data Center Interconnect (DCI), critical to workload mobility and application availability.

For networks evolving to SDN, the QFX10000 switches can integrate with VMware NSX SDN controllers, giving users options for SDN systems. The QFX10000 performs both Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) L2 and L3 gateway functionality; the open, standards-based platform also interoperates with Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB) to support automated management and control capabilities.

Architecture and Key Components

QFX10002 Switch Models

The QFX10002 line includes three fixed 2 U switch models, each providing wire-speed packet performance in 10GbE, 40GbE, or 100GbE speeds. All three switches provide a rich set of Junos OS features. In addition to a high throughput Q5 ASIC, the control plane performance on all QFX10002 switches is further enhanced with a powerful 2.5 GHz quad core Intel CPU and from 16 to 32 GB of SDRAM.

  • QFX10002-60C: The QFX10002-60C 100GbE switch features 60 QSFP28 ports, 60 QSFP+ 40GbE ports, or 192 QSFP+ 10GbE ports with four redundant 1600 W AC/DC power supplies and three fan trays.
  • QFX10002-36Q: The QFX10002-36Q 40GbE switch features 36 QSFP+ ports or 12 QSFP28 100GbE ports with two redundant 1600 W AC/DC power supplies and three fan trays.
  • QFX10002-72Q: The QFX10002-72Q 40GbE switch offers 72 QSFP+ ports or 24 QSFP28 100GbE ports with four redundant 1600 W AC/DC power supplies and three fan trays.



Figure 1: The custom-built Juniper Q5 ASIC

The QFX10002 switches are built with Juniper custom Q5 ASICs, which offer industry-leading performance and scale with 1 Tbps of switching throughput and support for network virtualization with VXLAN, Ethernet VPN (EVPN), and MPLS. The Q5 ASIC is embedded with on-chip analytics capabilities, along with Precision Timing Protocol and high-frequency monitoring.

Flexible Network Architectures

QFX10000 switches support a diverse set of deployment options, including L3 fabric and L2 and L3 networks with MC-LAG. Customers can choose the architecture that best suits their deployment needs and easily adapt and evolve as requirements change over time. The QFX10002 switches serve as the universal building block for all of these switching architectures, enabling data center operators to build cloud networks their way.

  • Layer 3 Fabric: For customers looking to build scale-out data centers, a Layer 3 spine and leaf Clos fabric is ideal due to its nonblocking and predictable performance and scale characteristics. For example, a two-tier fabric with QFX10000 switches as the spine and QFX5100 switches as leafs can scale to support more than 6,900 10GbE server ports at 3:1 oversubscription.
    One of the most complicated tasks in building an IP fabric is assigning all of the details such as IP addresses, BGP autonomous system (AS) numbers, routing policy, loopback address assignments, and many other implementation details. The second largest problem is automating the creation of an IP fabric at a large scale. Juniper has created the OpenClos project to provide free and open-source tools to automate the creation of IP fabrics in the data center. OpenClos is a set of Python scripts that has been developed as an open-source project and lives on GitHub. OpenClos takes a set of inputs that describe the shape and size of a data center and it outputs network switch configuration files and even a cabling plan.
  • MC-LAG: QFX10000 switches eliminate Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) in traditional L2 networks when deployed in a MC-LAG configuration. The active/active operation of MC-LAG ensures complete bandwidth utilization between the network’s access and aggregation layers, while the dual control plane technology ensures highest availability for applications.
  • Overlays: Customers can deploy overlay networks to provide Layer 2 adjacencies for applications over Layer 3 fabrics. The overlay networks utilize VxLAN in the data plan and EVPN or OVSDB for programming the overlays. The overlays can operate without a controller or can be orchestrated with an SDN controller like VMWare NSX.

Figure 2: QFX10000 switches can be deployed in Layer 3 fabric, VxLAN overlay, or MC-LAG configurations.

Carrier-Class Operating System

The QFX10000 switches run the same Junos OS used by all other Juniper Networks EX Series and QFX Series Ethernet Switches, as well as the Juniper Networks routers that power the world’s largest and most complex networks.

By using a common operating system, Juniper delivers a consistent implementation and operation of control plane features across all products. Junos OS employs a highly available modular architecture that prevents isolated failures from bringing down an entire system. Key Junos OS features that enhance the functionality and capabilities of the QFX10000 switches include:

  • Software modularity, with process modules running independently in their own protected memory space and with the ability to do process restarts
  • Uninterrupted routing and forwarding, with features such as nonstop routing (NSR) and nonstop bridging (NSB)
  • Commit and rollback functionality, which ensures error-free network configurations
  • A powerful set of scripts for on-box problem detection, reporting, and resolution

Juniper Virtualized Open Network Operating System Framework

The QFX10000 switches have an open software architecture that enables customers to innovate along with Juniper to accelerate the pace of innovation. Customers can create and run applications alongside Junos OS; these applications can then follow their own software release schedule.

This new solution offers modularity and direct programmability through APIs. The platform and Packet Forwarding Engine (PFE) modules are separate from the control module(s). They can also communicate with Junos OS as well as directly with platform and PFE modules through normalized programmable APIs. Having the ability to build applications that can program the QFX10000 control plane, data plane, and the platform itself, customers can implement specific and unique network forwarding functions and automate the control and management by integrating with their own SDN controller and orchestration tools. The QFX10000 programmable APIs have a stable abstraction so that the customer’s applications can work across Juniper platforms as well as future Junos OS releases. Based on Apache Thrift, the QFX10000 switches support standardized API definition via Interface Description Language (IDL), while allowing users to employ their favorite programming language.

Other services such as analytics and automation can also run as separate processes (daemons) and can be directly accessed through orchestration tools.

Features and Benefits

Virtual Output Queue (VOQ)

The QFX10000 switches support a Virtual Output Queue (VOQ)-based architecture designed for very large deployments. VOQ refers to a queue on the egress port that is maintained by the ingress PFE. With VOQ architecture, packets are queued and dropped on ingress during congestion with no head-of-line blocking.

Deep Buffer

The use of Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) memory for packet buffering on the ingress provides uncompromised congestion management capabilities and 100 ms of buffering per port.


QFX10000 switches support a number of network automation features, including operations and event scripts, automatic rollback, ZTP, and Python scripting. The switches also integrate with VMware NSX, Puppet, OpenStack, and CloudStack.


QFX10000 switches support a broad set of MPLS features, including L3 VPN, IPv6 provider edge router (6PE, 6VPE), RSVP traffic engineering, and LDP to allow standards-based network segmentation and virtualization.


QFX10000 switches support L2 and L3 gateway services that enable VXLAN-to-VLAN connectivity at any tier of the data center network, from server access to the edge. The QFX10000 switches can integrate with VMware NSX through data plane (VXLAN) and control and management plane (OVSDB) protocols to centrally automate and orchestrate the data center network.
