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.

With Virtual Chassis technology, up to ten interconnected EX4600 switches operate as a single logical device, reducing operational expenses and simplifying management.

Juniper’s Virtual Chassis technology allows any combination of up to 10 EX4300 and/or EX4600 switches to be seamlessly interconnected and managed as a single device, delivering a scalable, pay-as-you-grow solution for expanding network environments.

MACsec Support

EX4600 switches support IEEE 802.1ae MACsec, providing support for link-layer data confidentiality, data integrity, and data origin authentication.

Secure Campus Fabric

Switches are connected as an IP fabric with EVPN-VXLAN overlay. The IP fabric can extend to connect multiple enterprise buildings, while VXLAN allows stretching Layer 2 (L2) across the network.

A Magic Quadrant Leader

Gartner names Juniper a Leader in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure.
