vMX Series Universal Routing Platform

The vMX Series provides sophisticated routing capabilities for business and broadband services, including route reflection and customer premises equipment (CPE) applications. The carrier-grade platform also supports a variety of optional virtualized services, significantly expanding its application range.

The vMX runs the Junos operating system and compiles the programmable Trio chipset microcode for x86 chipsets—just like a physical edge router. It is available as licensed software for x86-based servers on AWS and AWS GovCloud (U.S.), as well as Microsoft Azure. With its flexible deployment models and licensing options (granular, perpetual, or subscription-based), you can start small, move fast, and stay profitable.

Key Features


  • Virtualized MX (vMX) disaggregation
