Juniper Networks adduces to mark an important milestone in the nine-year evolution of the MX Series. The company has recently divulged to tweak its MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routing portfolio with new hardware and software.
Enhancing performance, density and operational efficiency of its SDN-ready Juniper Networks operators, MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routing portfolio delivers the scale and automation that service providers and cloud operators require to bolster the economics of next-generation networks.
Network operators are on a hurl to encompass capacity to their infrastructure, simultaneously growing competitive marketplace has impel large enterprises to build sophisticated networks for deploying hybrid cloud and flexible- area networks.
The MX Series, powered by programmable Trio silicon and the Juniper Networks Junos software, gives customers investment protection and offers a network application development platform that seamlessly integrates with evolving SDN and NFV solutions.
Advancements for the MX Series:
- New MX Series line cards: The new MPC7, MPC8 and MPC9 line cards, all powered by programmable Trio silicon, provide high-density network connectivity and unmatched bandwidth, subscriber and services scale. The 400 GbE-ready MPC9 provides an industry-leading 1.6 Tbps of throughput, enabling a single MX2020 to scale to 32 Tbps of throughput, enough to stream more than 2 million 4K videos simultaneously. Additionally, the new MPC7 doubles the performance and density of all currently installed MX240, MX480 and MX960 routers, providing customers with unprecedented investment protection.
- Juniper Extension Toolkit (JET), which uses open application programming interfaces (APIs), yields new automation capabilities in the carrier-class Junos software. JET provides a programmatic interface to develop highly customized third-party applications, such as provisioning and self-healing capabilities. These applications can reside on or off the MX2010 or MX2020 to seamlessly interact with the network layer. Not limited to the MX Series, JET is available on all Juniper platforms that run Junos software. In addition, JET includes support for OpenConfig, a standardized, vendor-independent configuration and management capability with customizable YANG data models for flexible vendor integration.
- Junos Telemetry Interface: The industry’s first high-frequency telemetry export function on a networking platform to optimize network performance and fault management. Junos Telemetry Interface facilitates SDN/NFV migrations by synchronizing operational states to external controllers. Advanced analytics and real-time data correlation to deliver real-time reporting at scale are made possible through advanced technologies from companies like SevOne, a leading global provider of digital infrastructure management solutions.
The company claims that more than 90 percent of the 50 largest telecom companies today use MX Series routers in their networks.
MPC7, MPC8 and MPC9 line cards, Juniper Extension Toolkit with OpenConfig support and Junos Telemetry Interface are expected to be available in 1H 2016.
