PTX10001-36MR Packet Transport Router

The PTX10001-36MR is a cloud-optimized 1 U fixed form-factor based on Juniper Express4 ASIC, delivering high-density 100GbE and 400GbE high-performance scale to core and peering networks. Bringing 9.6 Tbps capacity to space- and power-constrained environments, the PTX10001-36MR delivers 400G inline MACsec, high FIB, deep buffer, and flexible filtering so you can scale higher, converge faster, and lower your cost per bit.

PTX10001-36MR offers flexible licensing options so you can pay as your network grows, and provides a smooth migration path from 100GE to 400GE without requiring any hardware or software updates. It supports critical use cases such as peering, label-switching router (LSR) core, content delivery network (CDN) gateway, data center edge, aggregation, and metro deployments.
