ACX7908 Cloud Metro Router

5G, IoT, and cloud are quickly increasing metro network traffic, challenging operators to deliver secure services at cloud scale. The high-performance ACX7900 line from Juniper’s ACX7000 Family of sustainable routers sets new benchmarks to help them succeed.

The ACX7908, part of the ACX7900 line, balances performance, scalability, and power efficiency in an 8-slot modular router. Two dense line-card options support port speeds from 100GbE to 400GbE, allowing the router to scale to 172.8 Tbps of capacity fully loaded.

Highly efficient modular power shelves, optimized line-card airflow design, and cooling-efficient chassis enable unrestricted use of ZR/ZR+ transceivers. Powered by Junos® OS Evolved, the ACX7908 supports Segment Routing (SR), SRv6, MPLS, EVPN-VXLAN, advanced programmability, network slicing, and telemetry. Juniper Paragon™ Automation optimizes network operations and enables differentiated services.
