The compact, agile, and full-featured MX80 3D Universal Edge Router is ideally suited for enterprise and service provider applications in facilities with limited space and power. MX80 routers are optimized for enterprise WAN, Data Center Interconnect (DCI), branch aggregation, and campus applications.
Equipped with two built-in 10GbE ports and two Modular Interface Card (MIC) slots, MX80 routers enable flexible network connectivity. An MS-MIC slot also is available on the MX80 for dedicated services support. MX80 routers enable cost-effective “pay as you grow” scale to meet evolving market requirements. This scale and flexibility is evident in the wide variety of MX Series use cases that have been proven in the world’s most demanding networks.
In the midst of worldwide digital transformation, consumers rely on networks more than ever. Global e-commerce sales are growing 20 percent annually; more than 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute,1 and analysts expect 26 billion Internet of Things devices to be generating data by 2020. These trends are straining traditional service provider and enterprise networks—and budgets—to the breaking point.
Powered by the Junos operating system and the programmable Trio chipset, MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers provide powerful routing, switching, security, and services features that help network operators transform their networks—and their businesses—in a hyperconnected world.
The continuous expansion of mobile, video, BYOD, and cloud-based services is disrupting traditional networks and negatively impacting the businesses that rely on them. While annual double-digit bandwidth growth requires massive resource investments to prevent congestion and accommodate unpredictable traffic spikes, capturing return on that investment is elusive. Emerging Internet of Things communications promise even greater network challenges in the near future.
At the same time, traditional operations environments are increasingly out of touch with consumer and business requirements for rapid service delivery and cloud-like network experiences. At the same time, issues related to monitoring and managing transitions are placing additional stress on already strained budgets and personnel. And nascent technologies like Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and SDN introduce an entirely new set of operational questions.
Our hyper-connected world demands more agile, automated, and scalable networks. Now more than ever, network operators need to transform their networks—and their operations environments—to accommodate this reality.
Utilizing state-of-the-art software and hardware innovations, Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers are helping network operators successfully transform their networks and services. Powered by the Juniper Networks Junos operating system and the programmable Trio chipset, MX Series routers offer a rich set of IP/MPLS services, consistent low latency, and wire-rate forwarding at scale, while providing the reliability needed to meet strict service-level agreements (SLAs).
Agility was the overarching design principle for the MX Series portfolio, and our MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers were built from the ground up to support a “universal set” of edge applications. This approach helps Juniper customers rapidly respond to evolving business and technical requirements without sacrificing their current investments; it also simplifies operations and extends return on investment. This agility starts with the programmable Trio chipset, which is unparalleled in the industry, giving the MX Series routers the ability to add support for new features and protocols without upgrading hardware. Additionally, features like the Juniper Extension Toolkit provide modern programming languages for customization.
The MX Series 3D Universal Edge Router portfolio consists of a broad range of physical and virtual platforms that share a common architecture and feature set, enabling service providers and enterprises to select the right size platform to match their unique business goals and scale, density, resiliency, space and power considerations, and value-added service requirements.
This agility is evident in the wide variety of MX Series use cases that have been proven in the world’s most demanding networks, including:
