QFX5110 access and aggregation switches deliver low latency, rich Layer 2 and Layer 3 features, VXLAN overlay deployments, and 100GbE uplinks, making it the industry’s most nimble line of switches.
Featuring L3 gateway capabilities for bridging between virtualized and bare-metal servers, the QFX5110 is designed for extremely agile data centers that demand support for overlay/underlay network architectures. The highdensity 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE ports also make the QFX5110 ideally suited for use in spine and leaf topologies.
Data centers are rapidly adopting cloud services, whether completely off-premise models or hybrid models with critical services offered through on-premise private clouds. The tremendous growth of off-premise cloud services, coupled with the widespread adoption of overlay technologies, has created a need for highly agile switching platforms that can satisfy the demands of these evolving data centers.
The high-performance Juniper Networks QFX5110 line of Ethernet switches fit the bill, providing the foundation for dynamic data centers. As a critical enabler for IT transformation, the data center network supports cloud and SDN adoption, network virtualization, integrated/scale-out storage, and the rapid deployment and delivery of mission-critical applications that significantly increase east-west traffic within the data center. Furthermore, increasing demand for 100GbE spine ports is driving the need for 100GbE uplinks for all server access speeds, including 10GbE and 40GbE. The QFX5110 includes 100GbE uplinks, enabling it to support a diverse set of switching architectures, including fabric, Layer 3, and spine-and-leaf deployments, enabling users to easily adapt as requirements change over time.
