Versatile, high-density 100GbE data center switches.

QFX5200 fixed-configuration access switches help you build next-generation IP fabric networks for high-volume traffic in software-defined data center networks.

The QFX5200 Ethernet Switch delivers a line-rate, low-latency, and high-density platform for building large spine-and-leaf IP-fabric data center networks. The switch offers flexible 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE interfaces for server and intrafabric connectivity, offering deployment versatility that future-proofs your network investment.

The QFX5200, a compact, 1 U platform offering 32 QSFP+ or QSFP28 ports, features a high-throughput 3.2-Tbps Packet Forwarding Engine. A 1.8-GHz quad-core Intel CPU with 16GB of memory further boosts performance on the control plane.

Like other QFX Series switches, the QFX5200 supports advanced Layer 2, Layer 3, and MPLS features. You can use the QFX5200 to build large, high-density IP fabrics that support upgrades to 25GbE, network virtualization, and intelligent traffic-forwarding based on proven, Internet-scale technology.

The QFX5200 also supports a disaggregated version of Junos OS that allows control and data plane processes and functions to run in parallel, maximizing utilization of the high-performance quad-core CPU.

• Support for 32 QSFP+ or QSFP28 ports in a 1 U platform provides a robust foundation for building high-density IP fabrics in the data center.

• Flexible 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE connectivity options give you deployment versatility and investment protection.

• Rich automation capabilities include zero-touch provisioning (ZTP), support for Juniper plug-ins for OpenStack Neutron and CloudStack NetworkGuru, and others.

• Junos OS enables the switch to support advanced networking features such as BGP add-path, MPLS, L3 VPN, and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE).
