Unrelenting traffic growth—driven by higher speeds, more subscribers, mobile penetration, cloud adoption, and ubiquitous video consumption—is straining traditional service provider and enterprise networks.

To accommodate this reality, Juniper’s Secure Automated Distributed Cloud solution helps service providers react to changing market conditions and accelerate service delivery with world-class products and innovative architectural components. The MX Series is an integral part of this solution.

Powered by the Junos OS and programmable Trio/Si5 silicon chipset, MX Series platforms deliver powerful routing, switching, security, and services features that help operators successfully transform their networks — and their businesses — in today’s hyper-connected world.

Product Description

The continuous expansion of mobile, video, and cloud-based services is disrupting traditional networks and impacting the businesses that rely on them. While annual doubledigit traffic growth requires massive resource investments to prevent congestion and accommodate unpredictable traffic spikes, capturing return on that investment can be elusive. Emerging trends such as 5G mobility, Internet of Things (IoT) communications, and the continued growth of cloud networking promise even greater network challenges in the near future. The Juniper Networks® MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform delivers the industry’s first end-to-end infrastructure security solution for enterprises as they look to move business-critical applications to public clouds. Delivering features, functionality, and secure services at scale in the 5G era with no compromises, the MX Series is a critical part of the network evolution happening now.

At the same time, traditional operations environments are increasingly challenged to meet consumer and business requirements for rapid service delivery and cloud-like network experiences. Issues related to monitoring and management are placing additional stress on already strained budgets and personnel, and promising technologies like Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and SDN introduce an entirely new set of operational challenges.

Our hyper-connected world demands more agile, automated, and scalable networks. Now more than ever, network operators need to transform their networks—and their operations environments—to accommodate this reality.

Utilizing state-of-the-art software and hardware innovations, MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platforms are helping network operators worldwide successfully transform their networks and services. Powered by the Juniper Networks Junos® operating system and the programmable Trio chipset, MX Series platforms support a broad set of automation tools and telemetry capabilities that enable a rich set of business- and consumer-oriented services with predictable low latency and wire-rate forwarding at scale, while providing the reliability needed to meet strict service-level agreements (SLAs).

An Agile Family of Cloud-Era Universal Routing Platforms

The MX Series portfolio was designed for agility and built from the ground up to support a universal set of edge applications, helping Juniper customers rapidly respond to evolving business and technical requirements while simplifying operations without sacrificing their current infrastructure investments.

With its massive scale and efficiency, the MX Series is ideal for space- and power-constrained environments. It redefines perslot economics, enabling customers to do more with less while simplifying network design, reducing OpEx. It also enables the profitable delivery of a broad range of business, residential, mobile, cable, data center, and cloud services while seamlessly supporting traditional and emerging network architectures with adaptive software and pervasive security. The flexibility of the MX Series is enabled by the programmable Trio chipset, which allows MX Series platforms to add support for new features, such as telemetry, without costly hardware upgrades. Additionally, support for the Junos Automation Toolkit and the Juniper Extension Toolkit provide modern programming languages that reduce costs and increase profitability by improving productivity and customization.

This agility is evident in the wide variety of MX Series use cases that have been proven in the world’s largest and most demanding networks, including:

  • Business Edge: MX Series platforms support the broadest range of L2/L2.5/L3 VPN services which, in combination with multilayer, multiprotocol resiliency, ensure that customer SLAs are met under all network conditions.
  • Internet/Peering Gateway: MX Series platforms support the high performance, reliability, scale, and density needed to efficiently peer with Internet and other service provider networks.
  • Broadband Network Gateway (BNG): MX Series platforms offer the highest subscriber density and most sophisticated broadband edge features available in the industry.
  • Universal SDN Gateway: The MX Series offers a comprehensive solution for interconnecting virtual and physical networks—as well as between virtual networks operating with different technologies—via support for Multiprotocol BGP (MBGP), dynamic tunnels using MPLSoGRE or Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) encapsulation, virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) tables, E-VPNs, and Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF), along with the ability to send traffic between VRF and global routing tables based on configuration and policy.
  • Data Center and Cloud Edge: The MX Series is ideal for data center/cloud edge applications, with support for multiple overlay encapsulation methods, including VXLAN, Network Virtualization using Generic Routing Encapsulation (NVGRE), MPLSoUDP, MPLSoGRE, 802.1BR, SR-MPLS, and SR-V6. The MX Series also incorporates data plane security with inline IPsec/MACsec in the MPC-10E line cards, making it a perfect fit for data center and cloud deployments.
  • Enterprise WAN: Enterprises and government agencies worldwide use MX Series platforms to build their own overlay network on top of a service provider’s Layer 2 or MPLS network, using encapsulation technologies such as MPLSoGRE, VXLAN, and IPsec for secure transport.
  • Universal Metro/Aggregation: MX Series platforms offer a full suite of routing and switching features, allowing you to choose a deployment model that best fits your business and technical needs. The MX Series can be deployed as IP/IP VPN edge routers, Ethernet VPN (EVPN) and virtual private LAN service (VPLS) provider edge (VPLS-PE) routers, MPLS label-switching (LSR) routers, and as Layer 2 Ethernet switches or Layer 3 IP routers.
  • Mobile Backhaul: In addition to switching, routing, and security features, MX Series platforms support highly scalable and reliable hardware-based timing that meets the strictest LTE requirements, including Synchronous Ethernet for frequency and the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) for frequency and phase synchronization. In addition, the MX104 is ETSI 300-compliant, enabling deployment in next-generation mobile applications such as 5G.

At-a-Glance: MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platforms Comparison

The MX Series portfolio includes a wide range of physical and virtual platforms that share a common architecture and feature set. This enables Juniper customers to select the platform that best addresses their unique business goals and satisfies their scale, density, resiliency, space, power, and value-added service requirements without compromising on quality or features.
