Please Put Your Tray Tables in Their Upright and Locked Positions

Have you ever been sitting in the window seat of a plane while flying through the clouds? Isn’t it the coolest feeling, watching the vapor whip by the window? Today’s networks need an infusion of that sense of soaring, giving users the notion of flying effortlessly through the clouds. As a component of the cloud-grade networking solution, we’re announcing the Juniper Networks® PTX10008 Packet Transport Router. The PTX10008 provides 3Tbps per slot and can have 240 100GbE interfaces in a single chassis. It enables service and cloud providers to build a core architecture that optimizes for MPLS Label Switch Router (LSR), Internet peering, backbone, and optical convergence applications and deployments.


The foundation of the PTX10008 is to scale efficiently. Its compact form factor conserves rack space and power, reducing the competition between storage and compute resources. To help operators manage their expanding infrastructure, Juniper has developed a telemetry interface called jVision to automate the network infrastructure. Telemetry data can be streamed from the PTX10008 to a collector, like Juniper Networks® NorthStar Controller, or other third-party applications for analysis. Network managers can look for predicative behavior and take corrective action to be proactive in improving the end-user experience.


The PTX10008 shares Juniper Networks routers’ DNA. It provides the same trusted Junos® capabilities that power some of the largest service provider and webscale companies today - providing the flexibility to add additional traffic engineering capabilities like those in the IETF’s Source Packet Routing in Networks (SPRING). SPRING, or segment routing, introduces the next generation of application driven network technology. The PTX10008, together with the Junos® Operating System, provides a powerful platform for operators to expand their network horizons. Like cruising along, whipping through the clouds. Check out the PTX10008 datasheet for more information.
