Architecture and Key Components

The QFX5200 can be used in L3 fabrics and L2 networks with MC-LAG. You can choose the architecture that best suits your deployment needs and easily adapt and evolve as requirements change over time. The QFX5200 switch serves as the universal building block for these two switching architectures, enabling data center operators to build cloud networks their way.

  • Layer 3 fabric: For customers looking to build scale-out data centers, a Layer 3 spine-and-leaf Clos fabric is ideal due to its predictable, nonblocking performance and scale characteristics. For example, a two-tier fabric built with QFX5200 switches as leafs and Juniper Networks QFX10000 switches as the spine can scale to support up to 18,432 40GbE ports, or 36,864 25GbE or 10GbE server ports in a single fabric.
    One of the most complicated tasks in building an IP fabric is assigning all of the implementation details, including IP addresses, BGP autonomous system (AS) numbers, routing policies, loopback address assignments, and many others. Automating the creation of an IP fabric at a large scale is equally difficult. To address these challenges, Juniper has created the OpenClos project to provide free and open-source tools that automate the creation of IP fabrics in the data center. A set of Python scripts developed as an open-source project that live on GitHub, OpenClos takes a set of inputs that describe the shape and size of a data center and outputs switch configuration files, as well as a cabling plan.
  • MC-LAG: The QFX5200 supports the MC-LAG protocol between two switches to eliminate Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) in traditional L2 networks when deployed in the aggregation layer. The active/active operation of MC-LAG ensures complete bandwidth utilization between the network’s access and aggregation layers, while the dual control plane technology ensures the highest availability for applications.

Carrier-Class Network Operating System

The QFX5200 runs the same Junos OS used by all other Juniper Networks QFX Series and EX Series Ethernet Switches, as well as the Juniper routers that power the world’s largest and most complex networks.

By using a common operating system, Juniper delivers a consistent implementation and operation of control plane features across all products. Junos OS employs a highly available modular architecture that prevents isolated failures from bringing down an entire system. Key Junos OS features that enhance the functionality and capabilities of the QFX5200 include:

  • Software modularity, with process modules running independently in their own protected memory space and with the ability to do process restarts
  • Commit and rollback functionality, which ensures error-free network configurations
  • A powerful set of scripts for on-box problem detection, reporting, and resolution

Junos Telemetry Interface

The QFX5200 supports Junos Telemetry Interface (JTI)*, a modern telemetry streaming tool designed for performance monitoring in complex, dynamic data centers. Streaming data to a performance management system enables network administrators to measure trends in link and node utilization, and troubleshoot such issues as network congestion in real time. JTI provides these capabilities:

  • Application visibility and performance management by provisioning sensors to collect and stream data and analyze application and workload flow path through the network.
  • Capacity planning and optimization by proactively detecting hotspots and monitoring latency and microbursts.
  • Troubleshooting and root cause analysis via high-frequency monitoring and correlating overlay and underlay networks

Features and Benefits

  • Automation and Programmability: The QFX5200 supports numerous network automation features, including operations and event scripts, ZTP, and Juniper plug-ins for OpenStack Neutron.
  • Flexible Forwarding Table: The QFX5200 switch’s Flexible Forwarding Table (FFT) allows the hardware table to be carved into configurable partitions of L2 media access control (MAC), L3 host, and longest prefix match (LPM) tables. In a pure L2 environment, the QFX5200 supports 136,000 MAC addresses; in L3 mode, the table supports 104,000 host entries; while in LPM mode, it supports 128,000 prefixes. A filter-based forwarding mode supports 64,000 exact match filtering rules. Junos OS provides configurable options through a CLI, enabling each QFX5200 to be optimized for different deployment scenarios.
  • MPLS: The QFX5200 supports a broad set of MPLS features, including L3 VPN, RSVP traffic engineering, and LDP to support standards-based multitenancy and network virtualization with per-flow SLAs at scale. The QFX5200 can also be deployed as a low-latency MPLS label-switching router (LSR) or MPLS provider edge (PE) router in smaller scale environments. The QFX5200 and the Juniper Networks QFX5100 switch are the industry’s most compact, low-latency, high-density, low-power family of switches to offer an MPLS feature set.
  • FCoE: As a Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) transit switch, the QFX5200 provides an IEEE data center bridging (DCB) converged network between FCoE-enabled servers and an FCoE-to-FC gateway or FCoE-enabled Fibre Channel storage area network (SAN). The QFX5200 offers a full-featured DCB implementation that provides strong monitoring capabilities on the top-of-rack switch for SAN and LAN administration teams to maintain clear separation of management. In addition, FCoE Initialization Protocol (FIP) snooping provides perimeter protection, ensuring that the presence of an Ethernet layer does not impact existing SAN security policies. FCoE LAG support transports FCoE traffic and regular Ethernet traffic across the same link aggregation bundle over ports on a converged network adapter (CNA), while guaranteeing that the same physical link is used for an FCoE point-to-point virtual connection.

The FCoE transit switch functionality, including priority-based flow control (PFC) and Data Center Bridging Capability Exchange (DCBX), are included as part of the default software.

QFX5200-32C-S Hardware with SONiC Support

The QFX5200-32C-S Switch supports Juniper’s SONiC implementation, delivering best-of-breed hardware and routing for cloud providers while taking advantage of the flexibility, resiliency, and cost savings of SONiC’s open and disaggregated architecture.

The SONiC-enabled QFX5200-32C-S, which plugs seamlessly into a unified SONiC network infrastructure, leverages the existing QFX5200-32C hardware and includes support for ONIE and IDEEPROM TLV formats. ONIE and SONiC images are installed on the hardware at the factory. The Juniper-provided SONiC image includes the platform and FRU device drivers only; it does not include Juniper software features such as Layer 2, Layer 3, MPLS, EVPN, and VXLAN, among others. The platform and FRU device drivers are uploaded to the SONiC Github open source repository. Customers can use their private SONiC patches by building and upgrading the ONIE and SONiC images on the switch.

Juniper complements the SONiC OS with the containerized Routing Protocol Daemon (cRPD), a full-function routing and management stack packaged as a container, ensuring a common end-to-end routing experience across different tiers in the data center. In addition, the cRPD enables high-performance telemetry, automation, and programmability in a lightweight deployment.
