Juniper Networks MX2008
Ultra-high capacity, performance, and port density in a space-optimized form factor.
As cloud builders, telecom service providers, and cable operators seek to improve customized digital experiences for their customers, they must concurrently address everincreasing bandwidth demands on their network. Meeting these objectives requires a dynamic, service-oriented edge routing platform that cost-effectively scales to meet both current demand and long-term forecasts.
The SDN-ready MX2000 line of 3D Universal Edge Routers are true cloud-grade networking platforms that help network operators of all types achieve their business goals by combining unparalleled performance, reliability, and security with a programmable, software-centric design at massive scale including line-rate encryption capabilities. Simply put, the MX2000 routers offer the system capacity, linerate port density, and serviceoriented design that network operators need to thrive today and in the future.
Increasingly sophisticated technology users are seeking highly responsive and customizable cloud-like online experiences and services that align with their unique needs and interests. At the same time, these users are creating more traffic that consume ever-increasing amounts of network bandwidth. For example, global e-commerce sales are growing at 20 percent annually; enterprises are increasingly moving infrastructure to the cloud1; every minute of every day, more than 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube2; and analysts expect 26 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices to be in use by 2020—more than a tenfold increase from 20153.
As network operators strive to profitably meet these market demands, they are thwarted by traditional hardware-centric edge routers that lack programmability and scale, which limits their competitiveness, constrains their revenue and market share growth, and increases their CapEx, OpEx, and TCO. Now more than ever, service providers need agile, service-oriented edge routers that cost-effectively scale to create a Cloud-Grade Network that meets current demand and long-term forecasts.
Meeting these challenges head-on, Juniper Networks® MX2000 line of 3D Universal Edge Routers—consisting of the 80 Tbps-capable MX2020 and the 40 Tbps-capable MX2010 and MX2008—enables network operators to confidently build the best cloud-grade core and edge networks across residential, mobile, business, and cloud/hosting markets.
Significantly, the MX2000 platforms run the same Juniper Networks Junos® OS as the entire MX Series 3D router portfolio, ensuring complete feature consistency and a common operational and management framework. This consistency reduces the cost, risk, and complexity of network evolution, helping current MX Series customers rapidly qualify and deploy the MX2000 routers.
Due to increasing security threats and data privacy concerns, Juniper has also made linerate Layer 2 encryption standard across the majority of its products, including the MX2000 line, by integrating MACsec technology. Starting in Q1 2018, the MX2000 platforms ship with 40GbE and 100GbE MACsec enabled on the MACsec-capable MIC-MACSEC-MRATE pluggable MIC for the MPC8E and MPC9E line cards. The 10GbE MACsec capability has been available on the MPC7E-10G line card since 2016.
