The Juniper MX960, MX480, and MX240 are modular chassis-based 3D routers that share the following components:
The Juniper MX104 is a mobile, optimized, ETSI 300mm-compliant chassis with high redundancy and 160 Gbps of throughput. The Juniper MX104 offers up to four MIC slots and redundant fixed 10GbE interfaces for flexible network connectivity.
The Juniper MX5, MX10, MX40, and MX80 are software upgradeable through 160 Gbps, enabling cost-effective “pay as you grow” scale to meet evolving market requirements. These routers have up to four MIC slots and two fixed 10GbE interfaces for connecting to the network.
Junos OS is a reliable, high-performance, modular network operating system that is supported across all of Juniper’s physical and virtual routing, switching, and security platforms. Junos OS improves network operations and increases service availability, performance, and security with features like low-latency multicast, comprehensive QoS, unified in-service software upgrade (unified ISSU), and Junos Continuity, which eliminates the risk and complexity of OS upgrades. With secure programming interfaces, the Juniper Extension Toolkit (JET), versatile scripting support, and integration with popular orchestration frameworks, Junos OS offers flexible options for DevOps style management that can unlock more value from the network.
Juniper MX Series routers can host optionally licensed Junos OS-based network edge services at scale, both inline on MPCs as well as on dedicated service cards. Hosting network edge services on MX Series routers reduces network cost and complexity by eliminating numerous elements, operating systems, and interconnections.
