Juniper Networks QFX5100-48S- AFO Switch

The Juniper Networks QFX5100 line of access and aggregation switches delivers low latency, flexible deployment options, and rich Layer 2 and Layer 3 features, making it the industry’s most nimble family of switches. Featuring Topology-Independent In-Service Software Upgrades (TISSU*) and support for L2 gateway capabilities for bridging between virtualized and bare- metal servers, the QFX5100 is designed for the most demanding, high-performance data center deployments.



The highly flexible, high-performance Juniper Networks® QFX5100 line of Ethernet
switches provides the foundation for today’s and tomorrow’s dynamic data center. As a
critical enabler for IT transformation, the data center network supports cloud and software-
defined networking (SDN) adoption, as well as rapid deployment and delivery of
applications. Mission-critical applications, network virtualization, and integrated or scale-out
storage are driving the need for more adaptable networks. With its diverse set of
deployment options, including fabric, Layer 3, and spine and leaf, the QFX5100 is the
universal building block for data center switching architectures, enabling users to easily
adapt as requirements change over time.
The QFX5100 line includes 10GbE (fiber and copper) and 40GbE fixed-configuration
options with rich Layer 2, Layer 3, and MPLS features. The QFX5100 runs the same
reliable, high-performance Juniper Networks Junos® operating system that is used by
Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches, Juniper Networks routers, and Juniper
Networks SRX Series Services Gateways, ensuring a consistent implementation and
operation of control plane features across the entire Juniper infrastructure.
Featuring a built-in Insight Technology capability, the QFX5100 provides valuable
performance and troubleshooting data via microburst monitoring and hotspot statistics.
The QFX5100 can also be used in Juniper’s Virtual Chassis switching architecture.
