Juniper Networks EX9250 Ethernet Switch

Category:

The EX9250 line of Ethernet switches provides compact, programmable, and scalable core and aggregation devices for enterprise environments, reducing cost and complexity while offering carrier-class reliability. The EX9250 Ethernet switches dramatically simplify campus and data center architectures by enabling evolved enterprise core deployments with Junos Fusion Enterprise and Ethernet VPN, creating a path to a 100GbE core.

The EX9250 switches serve as the foundation for Junos Fusion Enterprise architecture, a standards-based approach for creating an open, highly scalable switch fabric for the enterprise campus. Junos Fusion Enterprise dramatically simplifies campus deployments by collapsing the entire network into a single management point, with the EX9250 as its core. Junos Fusion Enterprise can also serve as the shared core for enterprise campus environments that have on-premises data centers.

EX9250 switches empower organizations to deploy an evolved enterprise core, supporting layer 2 or layer 3 applications by combining Ethernet VPN (EVPN) and Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) technologies. Using these open technologies allows enterprises to create a coherent, end-to-end network across geographically dispersed locations while leveraging unified policies to segment traffic.

Two EX9250 switches are available: the EX9251, a 1 U, compact, fixed device; and the EX9253, a 3 U, compact, chassis device with two available slots. The EX9251 features 4 quad small form-factor pluggable transceiver (QSFP) ports and 8 SFP+ ports. The EX9253 can deliver up to 1.2 Tbps (full duplex) per slot.

EX9250 Features

Field-Proven Juniper Technology
Field-proven Juniper technology—including high-performance ASICs, a cloud-grade architecture, and Junos OS—enables EX Series Ethernet Switches to provide always-on reliability for every application.

Compact Form Factor
Shallow depth 1 U and 3 U form factor is ideal for space-constrained enterprise campus closet environments.

Junos Fusion Enterprise
EX9250 serves as the aggregation device for Junos Fusion Enterprise architecture, a highly scalable switch fabric for the enterprise campus.

End-to-End Network Segmentation
End-to-end network segmentation goes from campus to data center with open Ethernet VPN (EVPN) technology.

Security Risk Management
Security risk management integrates network access control (NAC) capabilities to help EX Series switches dynamically deliver network protection, guest access, and identity-based quality of service (QoS).

Flexible Port Deployments
Flexibility with high densities of 1GbE, 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE ports dramatically simplifies network topologies and operations.

Eight QoS Queues
Eight QoS queues per switch port ensure proper prioritization of voice, video, and multiple levels of data traffic, with room to converge other networks, such as building automation and video security systems.
