QFX10002 Line of Ethernet Switches

The QFX10002 fixed-configuration switches are very dense, highly scalable platforms designed for today’s most demanding data center, campus, and routing environments. They’re loaded with power and functionality, all housed in a compact, 2 U form factor.

Using our custom silicon Q5 ASICs, QFX10002 Switches feature a deep buffer with Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) to absorb network traffic spikes and reduce application latency. They support 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE in the same platform, providing the flexibility to transition to greater network capacity as traffic demands increase.

Manage your QFX10002 with the turnkey Juniper Apstra System that automates the entire network lifecycle to simplify design, deployment, and operations and provide closed-loop assurance.
