EX2300 Multigigabit Ethernet Switch

The EX2300 Multigigabit Ethernet Switch delivers a compact 1 RU high-density solution for small network environments with space, power, and budget constraints. Multigigabit access ports (1/2.5GbE) deliver the performance and power for wired devices, making them ideal platforms for access layer refreshes or new greenfield deployments.

The switches offer IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE)/802.3at PoE+ for powering attached network devices, delivering a unified wired and wireless solution for your Wi-Fi 6 and 802.11ac access points

The EX2300 Multigigabit switch is cloud-ready and ZTP-enabled, so you can onboard, configure, and manage it with Juniper Mist™ Wired Assurance for improved connected-device experiences. In addition, the Juniper Mist Cloud streamlines deploying and managing your campus fabric, while Mist AI simplifies operations and improves visibility into the performance of connected devices. EX2300 Multigigabit switches support Juniper’s Virtual Chassis technology, which simplifies operations by interconnecting up to four switches that can be managed as a single logical device.

Features + Benefits

Claim, configure, and troubleshoot switches with a few clicks. Wired Assurance delivers better experiences for connected devices through AI-powered automation and service-level expectations (SLEs) with Mist’s AI engine and microservices cloud.

The EX Switches provide rich streaming telemetry data to enable the insights for switch health metrics and anomaly detection. Streamline IT operations, reduce mean time to repair, and deliver optimized experiences across wired and wireless.

EX2300 Virtual Chassis configurations operate as highly resilient unified systems, providing simplified management.

Virtual Chassis technology connects up to four EX2300 switches to operate as a single logical device, reducing operational expenses and simplifying management.

Future-proof investments using existing cabling infrastructure as the industry transitions and standardizes on multigigabit speeds.

The EX2300 multigigabit switches can interoperate with other EX Series switches in Virtual Chassis deployments, protecting your existing investments by enabling you to add multigigabit support to existing Juniper deployments. And add high bandwidth capabilities for IoT and smart devices while expanding and improving Wi-Fi without having to rip and replace cables.

Eight QoS queues per switch port ensure proper prioritization of voice, video, and multiple levels of data traffic, with room to converge other networks, such as building automation and video security systems.

The EX2300 also supports a wide range of policy options, including strict priority, low latency, weighted random early detection (WRED), and shaped-deficit weighted round robin (SDWRR) queuing.

CUSTOMER SUCCESS

UT Arlington Sustains Student Success with Smart, Agile Juniper Network

University of Texas at Arlington, located in the heart of Dallas-Fort Worth - the second largest institution in The University of Texas system - has been widely recognized as a best value in education by Forbes and others. When the COVID-19 pandemic first swept Texas, UTA quickly pivoted to e-learning and remote work. That agility was enabled by AI-driven Juniper networking from the classrooms and research labs to the data center and cloud apps.
