0:04 hello welcome to our cloud metro ama

0:07 series where we have experts to answer

0:09 your questions any questions related to

0:12 next-gen metro networks i'm your host

0:14 irene zen product marketing director at

0:17 juniper networks

0:19 joining me today is peter chang senior

0:21 product manager at juniper

0:23 peter welcome

0:26 today we have a question about

0:28 why customers who are using jericho or

0:30 jericho plus products for their metro

0:33 should migrate to

0:35 jericho 2 based

0:37 thank you arie

0:39 jericho 2 is the latest and greatest

0:41 broadcast dnx family in addition to the

0:45 well-known advantage on the power

0:46 consumption

0:48 cure is deep buffer and ethernet density

0:51 jericho 2 is able to offer much higher

0:54 throughput and service scale

0:56 i'd like to share more technical details

0:58 here which are very important for our

1:00 next generation mutual architecture

1:04 the very first one is label test

1:06 increase from 6 to 14.

1:08 by far this is the most important

1:10 enhancement for second routing traffic

1:12 engineering

1:13 trfa

1:14 and their today three service

1:16 combination

1:17 this is also the key foundation for 5g

1:20 network slicing

1:22 the second one is the fat ecmp is

1:24 increased from 4k to 32k

1:26 and local hierarchies from two levels of

1:29 three labels

1:30 this will greatly help to offer higher

1:32 layer 3 vpn service and multitask

1:35 redundant scenario

1:38 the third one is the egress pipeline

1:40 enhancement to support more equals

1:42 feature like ipv6 firewall and equest

1:45 sfs floor as well

1:48 the format is oem scabing enhancement

1:51 and delicate ethernet service activation

1:53 engine supporting

1:55 it's critical to have every layer 2

1:57 layer 3 or evpn service have dedicated

2:00 oem sections associated

2:02 so this is to ensure every service have

2:05 the visibility for service level

2:07 agreement

2:09 the next one is in order to support a

2:11 highly programmed programmability

2:15 the jira go to allow customers to select

2:17 flexible database profile to optimize

2:20 the layer to make table layer 3 ipv6 ipv

2:24 for fifth size or even for the firewall

2:28 the next enhancement to support highly

2:30 programmability

2:32 is so-called elective pipeline

2:34 electric combat will allow juniper

2:36 engineering to write a c pro plus co

2:38 compile and integrate in our own ses 7

2:41 consistent this will give you the future

2:43 enhancement

2:45 invest protection as well

2:47 the last one is the industry law

2:49 expecting srv6 support in

2:52 injector 2 sr basic with natalie support

2:54 and ready for the next generation 5g

2:57 service fabric and disputed data center

2:59 use case

3:02 apart from this bullet point jericho ii

3:04 support next generation maracas beer

3:07 more increase in egress pipeline

3:10 more keywords for fly

3:12 all together will make acs 7k perfect

3:15 fit into today in tomorrow metro network

3:18 and for the lineage as well

3:20 thank you arie

3:24 what else do you want to learn about the

3:25 next generation metro networks send us

3:28 your question by email at metro ama at
