Open networking, cloud-optimized switch

The OCX1100 open networking switch combines a cloud-optimized Open Compute Project (OCP) hardware design with the performance and reliability of the proven, carrier-class Junos operating system, to deliver a cost-effective switching solution for customers that require massive-scale cloud deployments.

The OCX1100 open networking switch is designed for large cloud builders looking to capitalize on innovations derived from real-world massive scale data center customer environments and backed by the industry-recognized Open Compute Project (OCP) Foundation.

The OCX1100 combines the power of Juniper’s hardened, carrier-class Junos operating system software with cloud-optimized, open source switching hardware built on commercially sourced components. Featuring an OCP-submitted design, the OCX1100 ensures customers are running a consistent and open hardware platform.

By offering a single-source solution, the OCX1100 offers customers the economies of an open hardware design while providing a level of support and reliability not typically available with other white box solutions.

The OCX1100, offering 48 small form-factor pluggable and pluggable plus (SFP/ SFP+) transceiver ports and six quad SFP+ (QSFP+) ports in a compact 1 U platform, is designed for cloud builders who want an open source hardware platform but won’t compromise on performance, reliability or support. Featuring an aggregate throughput of 1.44 Tbps or 1.08 Bpps per switch, the OCX1100 is an ideal high-density top-of-rack solution for large-scale Layer 3 Clos deployments.

• Cloud-optimized solution delivers a cost effective, open-source switching solution for large-scale cloud deployments where cost is more important than advanced feature sets.

• Open architecture based on Open Computing Platform (OCP) design specifications, allowing customers to leverage the open source hardware design community.

• Superior reliability from a combination of carrier-class Junos operating system with an open-source hardware architecture that’s also a cost-effective switching solution.

• Single-source solution of the OCX1100 virtually eliminates integration and support risk for customers.

• Consistent operating environment of Junos on the cloud-optimized OCX1100 switch lowers the learning curve for customers who already use Juniper switches, routers or security appliances in other parts of their network.
