The QFX5100 line composes access and top-of-rack 10/40GbE Ethernet switches delivering low latency, flexible deployment options, and rich automation features. They enable high-availability data center operations by allowing unified in-service software upgrades (ISSU). As cloud trends continue to push the boundaries of network performance, the QFX5100 line is optimized for high performance and density in the most demanding data center and multicloud environments.
QFX5100 Switches provide universal building blocks for industry standard architectures such as spine-and-leaf and Layer 3 fabrics. All QFX switches form the foundation of Juniper Contrail Networking, which automates networking policy and performs life-cycle management for data center fabrics.
The QFX5100 line includes six models
QFX5100-48S: 10GbE switch with 48 dual-mode small form-factor pluggable (SFP) and SFP plus (SFP+) transceiver ports and 6 quad SFP+ (QSFP+) 40GbE ports.
QFX5100-48T: 10GbE switch with 48 trispeed (100 Mbps/1GbE/10GbE) RJ-45 ports and 6 QSFP+ ports.
QFX5100-24Q: 40GbE switch that supports up to 32 QSFP+ ports.
QFX5100-96S: 10GbE switch with 96 dual-mode SFP and SFP+ ports and 8 QSFP+ 40GbE ports.
QFX5110-48S: 10GbE switch with 48 SFP+ ports and 4 QSFP28 ports that can be configured as 40GbE or 100GbE ports.
QFX5110-32Q: 40GbE switch with 32 QSFP+ ports or 20 QSFP+ ports with 4 QSFP28 ports.
Up to 2.56 Tbps sustains wire-speed switching with low latency and jitter, along with full Layer 2 and Layer 3 performance.
Dual hot-swappable AC or DC power supplies provide 1+1 redundancy, while five hot-swappable fan trays maintain high system availability.
Independent planes maximize system availability and throughput.
Software-programmable infrastructure helps you make the most of your network resources and adapt quickly to changing needs.
Contrail Networking enables you to provision and automate data center fabrics and Data Center Interconnect (DCI).
Low power consumption reduces your carbon footprint and operational expenses.
Support for Python, Puppet, and Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) helps you address growing network complexity.
You can make software upgrades in minutes with no downtime or lost user productivity.
