As an independent dealer of used Juniper hardware, Brightstar Systems stocks and resells high-quality pre-owned Juniper EX Series switches at a competitive price, and delivers excellent service and support. Discover detailed information below about our various offerings of used Juniper EX Series switches.
Pre-owned Juniper EX Series Switches Cover a Variety of Networking Applications
The used Juniper EX Series of switches includes nine subseries available in both fixed and modular configurations. Nearly every switch in the EX Series is available in multiple port configurations, which allows you to select the hardware that’s best suited for your networking needs. Below is a breakdown of the different pre-owned Juniper EX Series switches available:
Access EX Series Switches
The entry-level subseries in the Juniper EX Series switches, including the EX2200, the EX2300, the EX3300, the EX3400, the EX4200 and the EX4300 are all 1 RU (rack unit) in size and are fixed switches. Although the port configurations on these switches are mostly 1G Ethernet ports, some of the subseries feature additional higher-speed ports. The EX2300 and the EX3300 support up to 10G Ethernet, and the EX3400 supports up to 40G Ethernet. The EX4200 only supports up to 10G Ethernet, while the EX4300 supports up to 40G Ethernet.
Aggregate EX Series Switches
This tier of the EX Series includes the EX4550 and the EX4600. These switches are also only 1 RU in size. The EX4550 is designed as a fixed switch, whereas the EX4600 features some modular components. The EX4550 and EX4600 both support up to 40G Ethernet.
Core EX Series Switches
Although there is only one 100G Ethernet switch, the EX9200, in the EX Series, it’s available in three different chassis, the EX9204, the EX9208 and the EX9214, each of which has different specifications. The EX9204 is the smallest chassis at 5 RU; the EX9208 is 8 RU, and the EX9214 is 16 RU. A larger chassis can hold more line cards, which allows for more ports and greater flexibility in how ports are configured. The EX9204 can hold up to three line cards; the 9208 can hold up to six line cards and the 9214 can hold a total of 12 line cards.
Used Surplus Juniper EX Series Switches Will Meet Your Enterprise Networking Needs
The strongest attribute of the EX Series is that it offers an entire spectrum of networking solutions. But because it’s mostly made up of access switches as opposed to aggregate and core switches, it does not feature the same level of port diversity as some other Juniper switches, such as those in the QFX Series. The ports on many QFX Series switches are extremely versatile, and can be used with a variety of cables and optics to support several combinations of Ethernet speeds and ports.
Juniper EX Series optics – as a whole – are more limited than optics supported by QFX Series switches, due to the high number of access switches in the series. But used EX Series switches that are designed for aggregate and core applications, specifically the EX4550, the EX4600 and the three EX9200 chassis, offer some flexibility in their port configurations and support several different optical form factors.
