Yes, Im a Cisco man and I'm complete new to Juniper world and I want to covert to Islam - I mean Juniper .
Anyway, I understand that the srx240 comes with fixed 16 x 10/100/1000BASE-T ports. Are these switchports only? Does SRX240 supports routing and switching?? To enable routing on the box, must I use the SFP PIM?
Thanks everyone who response.

Just a heads up - the SFP slots only support 100 Mbps throughput, even if you use a Gigabit Ethernet SFP. Tell your Juniper Rep how stupid you think this is, please!
Info from the SFP Mini-PIM datasheet http://www.juniper.net/us/en/local/pdf/datasheets/1000315-en.pdf and JTAC.

I BELIEVE / THINK <- not 100% sure...... there will be support for voice systems / SIP; but... yes, more CME, not CME / CUE. I don't believe VM is built in, but AA, FXO, FXS, and sip will be options. SRST-style?
I think this is an ICS 240 too, not sure if DSPs will be built to PIMs or not...

The 100 Mbps limit is due to bus connection limitation for mPIM slots. The mPIMs are same ones used on SSG20 as well as SRX210 models which normally would only use mPIM for WAN type connections (i.e. T1, DSL, Cable). So the 100Mbps bus connection is more than adequate for these types of mPIMs. The SFP mPIM merely gives you an option for those customers that require fiber connection. But of course if you require GE speeds, the SRX240 has 16 copper ports which I think should meet needs.
And yes, you can configure each onboard port to be routed or switched. In fact, if just switching (not requiring any routing) then you can get line rate on each GE port. You can mix and match as you please with the onboard ports.
