    QFX5100-24Q-AFO Layer 3 Switch

    The QFX5100-24Q-AFO is one of several Juniper QFX5100 models that are made with 24 QSFP+ ports, which each support up to 40G Ethernet. And, like all those models, it’s only 1 RU.

    With breakout cables, all 24 QSFP+ ports can be broken out into four 10G Ethernet ports, creating a total of 96 ports that support up to 10G Ethernet instead of 24 ports that support 40G. 

    This specific model also supports two expansion modules, which allows you to increase the total port density. It supports the EX4600-EM-8F, which has eight SFP+ slots that support up to 10G Ethernet and the QFX-EM-4Q, which has four QSFP+ slots that support up to 40G Ethernet.

    With both expansion modules, the total port density of the device increases to 32 QSFP+ ports. Two of the expansion module slots are channelized, providing an additional eight 10G ports. However, the expansion modules are not included and must be purchased separately.

    Juniper’s QFX5100-24Q-AFO has a maximum capacity of 2.56 Tbps.

    The QFX5100-24Q-AFO also features the standard two management ports: one is an RJ-45 and the other is an SFP port. Both ports support up to 1G Ethernet. Some QFX5100 models support up to three management ports. The third is an additional SFP port.

    The QFX5100-24Q-AFO is made with front-to-back airflow. It also has an AC power supply and the power consumption is 161 W.
