What is 400G technology?
400G represents the next generation of optical transceivers. With a four-fold increase in maximum data transfer speed over 100G, 400G addresses the massive bandwidth demands being placed on network infrastructure providers.
What’s driving 400G adoption?
Massive growth in cloud computing, AI, and 5G have driven an exponential demand for high-bandwidth, scalable solutions that can support new 400G techniques and architectures. The need for improved operational workflows, better economics, and concrete business outcomes continues to push 400G adoption forward.
Who is looking to implement 400G?
400G-capable solutions are ideal for high-volume telco providers, large data centers, and enterprises grappling with unrelenting traffic growth. Hyperscale data center operators were the first to embrace and deploy 400G solutions, which are now being adopted by a broader group of forward-looking and innovative operators facing similar high-traffic challenges.
What are the advantages of 400G deployments?
400G enables a new level of scale. Providing 4x higher bandwidth per RU than 100G, 400G optical transceiver modules deliver a lower cost per bit by delivering the same bandwidth in less physical space. 400G pipes are also easier to manage with fewer overall ports, and silicon advancements reduce watts consumed per gigabit, allowing for the transmission of more bits at a lower power.
What 400G solutions does Juniper offer?
Juniper offers a complete portfolio of 400G-capable modular and fixed chassis switches and routers for both WANs and data center networks. These solutions span the PTX Series Packet Transport Routers, MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platforms, and QFX Series Switches. They’re all optimized for scale-up and scale-out use cases, including core, peering, data center edge, data center interconnect (DCI), and multiservice edge applications.
