Features + Benefits

High Capacity and Performance

Scale up to 230.4 Tbps per chassis to protect your investments as your business and traffic expand. Powered by custom Express4 silicon, this is performance built to last.

Operational Excellence

Get full IP/MPLS services, consistent low latency, power efficiency of 0.15W per gigabit, and secure wire-rate forwarding at scale, along with the high reliability needed to meet strict service-level agreements (SLAs).

Inherent Security

Take advantage of native 400G inline MACsec with no performance penalties. Be prepared for cloud attacks without any hidden costs. 

Programmability and Automation

Bring the latest virtual innovations to the network core. Used with Paragon Automation, the platform optimizes IP and transport layers to help automate and scale operations.

Low Speed Interface Support

PTX LC1201 and LC1202 line cards offer native SFP+ transceiver support through QSFP adapter, MAM1Q00A-QSA. This option enables deployments where 10GE connectivity over more than 10KM single mode fiber links is required.
