New switches offer customers new ways to leverage Unite, Juniper Networks reference architecture that provides enterprise customers with the simplified and secure network infrastructure solutions they need to modernize their campus and branch networks to become truly “cloud ready."
Today, we added two new enterprise-class switches to our broad portfolio that will provide your customer new access switching options to support increasing bandwidth requirements, while helping to reduce network complexity with support for next generation switching architectures. Both are Junos Fusion Enterprise and Virtual Chassis technology ready, which provides small or mid-size enterprises the flexibility and ease of management that previously was available only with higher end access switches. These switches offer customers new ways to leverage Unite, Juniper Networks reference architecture that provides enterprise customers with the simplified and secure network infrastructure solutions they need to modernize their campus and branch networks to become truly “cloud ready.”
The new EX2300 Ethernet Switch adds to the entry-level portfolio that currently includes the EX2200 switch. The EX2300 series is an economical, entry-level, stand-alone solution for access-layer deployments in branch and remote offices, as well as enterprise campus networks. The EX2300 switch acts as a satellite device in Junos Fusion Enterprise in large deployments, where it allows over a hundred EX2300 devices to be managed as a single logical device. For smaller deployments, up to four EX2300 switches can be connected together in a Virtual Chassis configuration, allowing them to be managed as a single logical switch. The EX2300 will also offer faster uplink options with 10Gbe uplink ports available to support enterprises with their ever-increasing demand for bandwidth.
We’re also adding the EX3400 Ethernet Switch to the mid-range access switch family that includes the EX3300 series. The EX3400 switch is a high-performance, flexible and cost-effective solution for today’s most demanding converged data, voice and video enterprise access environments. The EX3400 will offer faster uplink speeds with 40Gbe uplink ports. It simplifies operations as part of a Junos Fusion Enterprise deployment, which allows more than a hundred EX3400 switches to be managed as a single logical device. The EX3400 also supports Virtual Chassis technology – up to 10 switches can be interconnected over uplink ports and managed as a single logical device to deliver a scalable, pay-as-you-grow solution for expanding network environments.
Enterprise customers today want an easy, automated way to scale their networks. These switches give your customers new options not available before. They are a smart, easy and economical way to provision a network of almost any size quickly. They are seriously better options than any other campus access and data center switches available today.
The EX2300 and EX3400 switches are great reasons to re-engage with your customers, especially those planning to refresh their current switch line up and future proof their network for the business needs of tomorrow. We have sales tools on Partner Center to help you with those discussions. You’ll find them on the “Tools and Resources” link. So check out Partner Center for more information on these new switches and how they can benefit your customers and learn about the training that will be available to you and your teams.
