QFX5200-32C-AFO

QFX5200-32C Layer 3 Switch

Network operators are increasingly deploying scale-out, spine-and-leaf IP fabric architectures, built with fixed-configuration switches to support growing east-west traffic in the data center. The Juniper Networks® QFX5200 line of next-generation, fixedconfiguration leaf/access switches offers flexible, cost-effective, high-density 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE interfaces for server and intra-fabric connectivity, providing deployment versatility, investment protection, and future-proofing for today’s data centers.

In addition to leaf deployments in IP fabric architectures, the QFX5200 switch is also a great fit for multitier, multichassis link aggregation (MC-LAG) network implementations commonly used in enterprise networks.

Like other QFX Series switches, the QFX5200 supports advanced Layer 2, Layer 3, and MPLS features. For large public cloud providers-among the first to adopt 25GbE servers to meet explosive workload growth-the QFX5200 enables very large, dense, and fast IP fabrics based on proven, Internet scale technology.

The QFX5200 runs the same reliable, high-performance Juniper Networks Junos operating system used by network operators around the world. The QFX5200 supports a disaggregated version of Junos software with a modular architecture that allows the switch’s control plane and data plane processes and functions to run in parallel, maximizing utilization of the high-performance quad-core CPU.

QFX5200 Configuration

The QFX5200 is a compact, 1 U platform featuring 32 quad small form-factor pluggable plus (QSFP+) transceivers or QSFP28 ports, with two redundant 850 W AC/DC power supplies and five fan trays.

A QSFP28 module can be used for a 1x100GbE connection or 2x50GbE or 4x25GbE connections using breakout cables. A QSFP+ module can be used for a 1x40GbE connection or 4x10GbE connections using breakout cables.

The QFX5200 features a high throughput 6.4 Tbps Packet Forwarding Engine (PFE). Control plane performance is further enhanced with a powerful 1.8 GHz quad core Intel CPU with 16 GB of memory and 64 GB SSD storage.
