ACX1000 Universal Metro Router

The ACX1000 Universal Metro Router is a 1U fanless router that is ideal for enterprise and service provider cabinet and tower deployments. It delivers up to 60 Gbps through a fixed configuration of eight T1/E1 interfaces, eight copper 10/100/1000 GbE ports, and four GbE combination fiber/copper ports.

ACX1000 routers are compact 17.5 x 1.75 x 9.4 in (44.5 x 4.4 x 24 cm) platforms conforming to ETSI 300 specifications. This architecture eases deployment in a service provider or enterprise cabinet where rack space and cooling are limited.

The Junos SDK makes ACX1000 fully customizable. The scalability and reliability of the platform improves customer satisfaction while lowering the total cost of operating, maintaining, and updating the network infrastructure.

Jackson Electric Co-Op Sees 30% Work-from-Home Internet Surge

When the coronavirus crisis forced the shutdown of America, Jackson Electric Cooperative turned it up. Broadband Internet became a lifeline for the residents of Matagorda Bay, Texas, in the U.S., with miles of Gulf Coast beaches and fresh oysters, blue crab, and shrimp. Jackson Electric’s smart community network, built on a foundation of Juniper routing, easily handled a 30% surge in Internet traffic and a 130% spike in subscriber connections.
