2-port SFP Gigabit Ethernet IQ PIC Module
Juniper Networks has further enhanced its portfolio with the advent of Ethernet Intelligent Queuing (IQ) Physical Interface Cards (PICs). These advanced PICs are based on the Q Performance Processor (QPP), a custom high-performance ASIC designed to deliver granular per-VLAN quality-of-service (QoS) capabilities along with extensive instrumentation and diagnostics on a per-VLAN and per-MAC address basis.
Ethernet IQ PICs have been combined with the JUNOS virtual private LAN service (VPLS) capability to deliver a metro Ethernet service. VPLS enables service providers to deliver true multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet services over their IP/MPLS networks across both single metropolitan and geographically disparate metro areas. This compelling new capability enables the provider edge (PE) routers to automatically build a full mesh of LSPs and to switch Ethernet frames based on MAC address into the appropriate LSP, thereby leveraging IP/MPLS to provide a new level of scalability and resiliency that was previously unavailable in purely switched metropolitan Ethernet infrastructures.
