Juniper Networks Adds to EX Family with 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch
Juniper's EX2500 Series Ethernet Switch
- Wire-rate Performance: The EX2500 Series will support 480 Gigabit per second (Gbps) throughput (full duplex) in a 1 rack-unit (RU) footprint. All ports are non-blocking with deterministic latency of less than 700 nanoseconds.
- Deployment Flexibility: The EX2500 Series will support both back-to-front and front-to-back cooling, which will deliver deployment flexibility and consistency with server designs for hot- and cold-aisle layouts. The result will be that network ports can always have the best proximity, front or rear-facing, to allow closer proximity to server ports and thus, keep cable lengths short and easily managed, and performance optimized.
- High Availability: The EX2500 Series will offer both power and fan redundancy as standard features. The EX2500 Series will come with dual, load-sharing power supplies, as well as redundant, variable-speed fans to protect from single power supply or fan failure.
- Energy Efficiency: The EX2500 Series will improve availability and cooling efficiency via redundant variable speed fans. The variable speed fans will automatically adjust speed under variant conditions to reduce power consumption.
