QFX5210 Switches

The QFX5210 line provides line-rate, low-latency platforms for building large, standards-based fabrics. These switches offer flexible 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE interfaces for server and intrafabric connectivity. QFX5210 Switches are an optimal choice for lean spine-and-leaf deployments in enterprise, service provider, and cloud provider data centers, as well as routing use cases in metro environments.

This platform supports Juniper’s SONiC implementation, delivering best-of-breed hardware and routing while taking advantage of the flexibility, resiliency, and cost savings of SONiC’s open and disaggregated architecture.

Manage your QFX5210 with the turnkey Juniper Apstra System that automates the entire network lifecycle to simplify design, deployment, and operations and provide closed-loop assurance.
