EX Series Ethernet Switches address the access, aggregation, and core layer switching requirements of micro branch, branch office, campus and data center environments, providing a foundation for the fast, secure and reliable delivery of applications that support strategic business processes. EX Series enterprise Ethernet switches deliver operational efficiency, business continuity, and agility, enabling customers to invest in innovative initiatives that increase revenue and help them gain a competitive advantage.
Each line in the EX Series Ethernet Switch family—including the EX2200, EX2500, EX3200, EX3300, EX4200, EX4500, EX6200 and EX8200—is designed to address increasing demands for high availability (HA) and unified communications within high-performance enterprise networks.
In an enterprise campus and branch application, the EX Series Ethernet switches—as part of Juniper’s Simply Connected portfolio—work with Juniper wireless and security solutions to create a standards-based network foundation that is well-aligned and flexible enough to deliver all enterprise applications—everything from file services to IP telephony, messaging, presence, video conferencing, and Web services.
In the data center, the EX Series Ethernet switches are well suited to meeting the challenges of server virtualization and distributed applications. By implementing Juniper’s 3-2-1 data center architecture, the EX Series Ethernet switches enable enterprises to not only improve performance but also to increase operational efficiency.
Juniper’s unique Virtual Chassis technology, available on the EX3300, EX4200, EX4500 and EX8200 lines, allows multiple interconnected devices to operate—and be managed—as a single, logical device, further reducing operational expenses and eliminating the need for protocols such as Spanning Tree.
The EX2200, EX3200, EX3300, EX4200, EX4500, EX6200, and EX8200 lines all run the same Junos operating system as other Juniper router and security solutions, ensuring consistent and predictable behavior and shared feature implementation across the entire network infrastructure.
|Carrier-class reliability||EX Series Ethernet switches leverage the same field-proven Juniper technology — including high-performance ASICs, a carrier-class system architecture, and JUNOS Software — that powers the world’s largest service provider networks.|
|Security risk management||EX Series Ethernet switches tightly integrate with Juniper’s Unified Access Control (UAC) solution, dynamically delivering network protection, guest access and identity-based QoS based on user, device, and location.|
|Performance||Each of the EX Series Ethernet switches deliver wire-speed performance on all ports for any packet size. For instance, the EX8200 modular Ethernet switches deliver up to 128 wire-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports per chassis with nearly 2 billion packets per second throughput—the ideal Ethernet switch platform for next-generation data centers.|
|Virtualization||Virtual Chassis technology, currently available on the EX4200 line of Ethernet switches, allows up to 10 Ethernet switches to be interconnected and managed as a single, logical device, delivering the reliability, scalability, and manageability of traditional chassis-based systems in a cost-effective, compact platform.|
|Application control||The EX Series Ethernet switches support eight QoS queues per port, ensuring proper prioritization of control plane, voice, video, and multiple levels of data traffic — with room to converge other networks, such as building automation and video security systems.|
|Lower total cost of ownership||The innovations of the EX Series Ethernet switches enable new architectures that reduce cost and complexity. Unified management and automation tools consolidate system monitoring and maintenance and save time and money.|
