2.5 GB port with EX2300 & EX3400 & EX 4300

‎04-15-2019 06:02 AM

Experts,

 

Having Aerohive 650 & 650X I wonder if I have a chance to get speed of these ports to 2.5GB - what latest software support that?

 

Aerohive 650 supports 1 & 2.5 GB uplink port. 

 

Thank you,

For 2.5 or 5 GE support, you need the MP (MultiGigabit) version of either the EX2300 or EX4300.  There is no such model for EX3400.  See here for more details:

Hi LOGTECH,

 

These switches should include native support for 2.5Gbps, just need to configure the multigigabit interface appropriately:

set interfaces <mge-fpc/pic/slot> speed <100m|1g|2.5g>

 

So any Junos supported on the switch should include the 2.5Gbps functionality.

 

Hope this helps.

I see, I dont have MP (MultiGigabit)  version of mentioned models so basically I am tight to 1Gb only. Well other option is Link Aggretaion to 2GB but that would wastes 2 x 1GB per access point. Replacing all Juniper networks for only MultiGigabit does not make any sense. Thank you

There is both the EX2300-24MP, EX2300-48MP and EX4300-48MP. The two EX2300 series switches provides 2,5 Gbps on 8 or 16 ports respectively. On the EX4300-48MP the last 24 ports can do both 2,5/5/10 Gbps.
